ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University is hosting several Freshmen Send-Offs in July. The send-offs bring incoming students together with current students and CU alumni allowing the freshmen to hear first-hand about the Concord experience.

The inaugural send-off was held last summer for Wyoming County residents at Twin Falls Resort State Park in Mullens, W.Va. CU returns to Twin Falls again this year and adds two new destinations and three new counties to the send-off agenda.

The Wyoming County Freshmen Send-Off will be held Thursday, July 23 at Twin Falls Resort State Park in Mullens at Shelter #2. A Freshmen Send-Off for Greenbrier and Monroe counties is scheduled for Tuesday, July 28 at Ronceverte Island Park in Ronceverte, W.Va. at Shelter #1. The Summers County Freshmen Send-Off is slated for Thursday, July 30 at Pipestem Resort State Park, Pipestem, W.Va. at Picnic Shelter C.
