2020 Launch Expo »

Launch Communities Fair

Welcome to the Launch Communities Fair

The Launch Communities Fair is designed to introduce you to Launch’s 16 Career and Identity/Affinity Communities. Each one of these network, program, and space hubs are built to provide you with academic, co-curricular, and event opportunities, as well as to link you to potential mentors you can meet to further your exploration and goals. Each Community Launchpad page has information specifically curated for that Community. However, these are not communities of membership—they are communities of interest. You are free to explore as many as you would like. In fact, you are encouraged to do so.

How it Works

The Launch Communities Fair will take place from 3:00pm – 6:00pm on October 23, 2020. In this page, you’ll be able to visit as many of the 16 Launch Communities as you’d like. In each Community space, you’ll have the opportunity to interact virtually with Community-related faculty, Student Club leaders, and alums, employers, or staff. Listen to their stories and experiences associated with the Community, explore Community-related engagement, networking, and experiential opportunities, and ask many questions. When ready, simply come back to this page to find another Community of your interest and keep going!

Questions?

Of course, we’d prefer to offer these events in-person on Drew’s campus this Fall. However, just because we’re not physically close to one another doesn’t mean that we’re not still here to support you. If you have any questions about these events, how to participate in them, or anything else Launch related, please feel free to reach out to us at launch@drew.edu.
