Planning Congratulatory Receptions

The area chairperson is responsible for the planning of this event and any remarks held during this program. In some cases, an admission staff member may attend, but this should not be expected as the event should be run entirely by the area committee. Planning and scheduling begins in December. Once the date and location have been confirmed, the Office of Admission will include an invitation to the reception in the acceptance packages of admitted students. The Office of Admission will e-mail an invitation to all alumni volunteers, Board of Trustee members, and Society of Families members, as well.
