You May Be College Savvy…But Are You Drexel Savvy?
CTSE and the Office of New Student and Family Programs hosts Orientation sessions for
incoming transfer students prior to the start of the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.

- Meet current students and other transfers
- Connect with your academic advisor
- Learn ways to become invovled in the campus community
- Discover resources and services available to you
- Have fun!
