Welcome to Drexel University,
Congratulations on your admission to Drexel University! You have overcome a challenging decision process and made the choice to call Drexel your home. Now that you're officially a Drexel Dragon, you're probably wondering about what happens next. To help guide you through this process, our First Year Experience website provides you with all the information you will need — including important dates, resources, and more — all in one spot.
But a Drexel education isn’t a destination, it’s a journey. And your journey begins with Welcome Week, Drexel's student orientation that gives all new Dragons the opportunity to experience campus and get to know each other before starting classes in the fall. Beginning with Move-In Weekend, Welcome Week (September 11–19) is the perfect way for you to begin your First 100 Days as a Drexel Dragon in the great city of Philadelphia.
Now that you have been admitted, learn more about your next steps as a new first-year or transfer student.
