Undergraduate Programs

The Freshman Experience

LeBow offers a strong foundation that promotes success not only during freshman year, but during your entire career at LeBow.

Welcome Week and LeBow College Day kicks off with a chance for new students to make friends and learn to navigate our campus. Countless other opportunities follow, including case competitions, business simulations and the chance for select students to participate in academic research. Here, freshmen get exposure to business usually reserved for upperclassmen. Start your career by jumping right in!

Visit the Drexel First-year Experience website for more information regarding move-in, housing, dining and other University services outside of LeBow.
