Event Description

Join fellow Royals in your area as we gather to celebrate and send off our newest Royals to Bethel! Summer Send-Offs are informal gatherings for first-year, transfer, and returning students and their family members. These events offer an opportunity for new students and their families to meet current students, University representatives and other family members in a casual and relaxed setting. These will be informal opportunities for people to get to know each other, ask practical questions, and to meet and hear from President Ross Allen.
