Schedule

Welcome to the Dornsife School of Public Health Virtual Orientation!

We are excited to welcome new dragons to campus during Welcome Week in September. Until then, we have designed Virtual Orientation, starting August 3, 2020, which will help you transition into Dornsife student life.

Virtual Orientation combines opportunities to connect one-on-one and in group settings with students, faculty, and staff. Each week, we’ll post opportunities to participate in live events and self-paced Blackboard modules that are essential to learning about Drexel’s systems and your success.

Continue to check this page for the Virtual Orientation weekly theme and schedule. Included in the schedule are details on the topic, date, time, location or method, and intended audience as applicable.
