Welcome to Drexel University! All full-time undergraduate students are required to attend New Student Orientation on January 4, 2013.
New Student Orientation (NSO) at Drexel University is an opportunity for new students and families to become connected to the Drexel community. Orientation is a comprehensive overview of the Drexel student experience. Both new students and families are welcome to attend Orientation, as it presents information that responds to each population's unique needs. By attending Orientation, students will meet other new and returning students and develop a clear understanding of what to expect when classes begin.
New Student and Family Program hotlines are open between 8 AM and 5 PM (EST), Monday through Friday. Please call us with any questions about New Student Orientation.
