StFX Student Send-Offs

View Student Send Offs in a larger map

It is that wonderful time of the year again! When the sun is shining, the smell of BBQ is in the air and new Xaverians are preparing to arrive on campus in just a few weeks. It’s student send-off season!

A student send-off is a student-centered event, welcoming new students into the Xaverian community. These events vary in type and take place ALL OVER the world! Our send-offs are intended for incoming students to become acquainted with your local alumni, meet other students from their area, and learn a little bit about StFX from our University guests. StFX prides itself on being a close knit community and being able to offer a very unique and special experience. This is your first opportunity to familiarize yourself with the culture, the memories, the traditions and the future of StFX!

Please view the list of send-offs below, and click on the send-off closest to you for more information. Remember to RSVP, so that our chapter representatives can prepare and await your arrival. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica MacLellan at
