Drexel LeBow First-Year Student Experience

The first-year student experience at LeBow offers a strong foundation that promotes success not only during your first year but your entire college career.

Welcome Week and LeBow College Day kick 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, first-year students get exposure to business courses that are 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.
