Summer Send-Offs - We'll be in your hometown! 

This reception style event is designed to connect incoming UTC students and family members with alumni, staff, and current UTC students from their respective areas.  The connections created during our Summer Send-Offs help new students feel included in the Chattanooga family before arriving in August.  
We're excited to partner with the UTC Alumni Chapters in each region to host these events!
