An Opportunity to Meet Broncos in Your Area

During the summer, the Alumni Association holds receptions for incoming freshman, transfer students, and their parents across the country. These receptions offer a unique chance for new students to get together and interact with current students and alumni. Mark your calendars to join us for this annual Santa Clara tradition.

If you are interested in serving as a host for a new student reception in your local area, please contact the Alumni Office at 408-554-6800 or 866-554-6800 (toll-free).
