First-Year Sendoffs

First-Year Send-offs provide an opportunity for incoming new Drake students and their parents to meet other Drake-bound families from the same city.  It's a great way to find rides home from Drake during the school year, get some of your last minute questions answered, and celebrate your entry into the Bulldog family!

This year's send-off gatherings are happening throughout the country on Sunday, July 30, 2017 in the Twin Cities, Des Moines, Kansas City, Omaha, Denver, the Quad Cities, St. Louis, and Chicago. Check for details about times, locations, and registration.
