Attend New Student Orientation

Before your classes begin, you’ll attend Orientation, a session designed to get you (and your family) comfortable here.


Note: Laptop Required Beyond This Point

Learning is timeless, but our classes are cutting-edge. A laptop will help you enormously as you learn here (and thus is required). If you aren’t bringing your own, our Laptop Program will help you obtain one. Details are here!

Like almost all first-year students, I was worried about connecting with other students and how long it would take to feel comfortable around my new peers. From Orientation week activities to starting our self-selected Drew Seminars to spending the day in New York City with our classmates, at each stage I was given the opportunity to meet and interact with people who I wouldn't have had the chance to get to know otherwise. Having shared experiences has brought us closer together as a class and has really made the transition from high school to college much smoother than I initially anticipated. ”
