First-year

Welcome to Drew! Whether you have just been accepted or have just arrived on campus, we’re excited to tell you about Launch, our approach for building life and career readiness right into the undergraduate experience. Launch is our guarantee that every Drew student graduates with a purpose-driven, experience-based life plan—and the confidence to put it into practice. 

Launch starts your first year at Drew, first with DSEM 100, then things really ramp up with Drew 110. Drew 110 is a one-credit, half-term course required for all first-year, transfer and international students. You’ll explore yourself and your role in the world. And you’ll start developing a plan—we call it your Launch Plan—to guide you through Drew and beyond.  

But you can start exploring right now, right here. Check out the Mentors page in Launchpad or Drew Connect, our online platform to connect students with alum and other mentors. Browse our Career Communities and Identity/Affinity Communities to find events, resources and mentors in your areas of interest.

Thinking about joining a club? Launchpad can lead you there. Thinking about landing an internship? It’s never too early to learn browse the options or to speak with staff members at the Center for Internships and Career Development. At Drew, we’re here for you.
