New Student Send-offs

Before you pack your bags for Drexel ...
join us at a New Student Send-off Reception!

The Drexel University Alumni Association is on the road this summer, to welcome incoming students and their families to the Drexel community at New Student Send-off Receptions across the country. We'll be in your area and we'd love to meet you and your family before you pack your bags and head to Drexel!

Join us for a Send-off near you to get to know other new Drexel students and families, and chat with local Drexel alumni about their experiences. Staff members from the University will also be available to answer any last-minute questions you may have.

Each reception is free and complimentary refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is required. Check out the events we have planned in the areas below:
