Welcome Drake Parents!

We look forward to having you join us for Virtual Orientation! We will offer sessions especially designed for our new Drake parents and families about your student’s transition to Drake and how we work with parents as partners to support student success. Please visit our Parent and Family website for more resources and information.

    Join in our annual tradition and send a note of encouragement to your Bulldog during their first week of class. Participate by downloading the form above, do a "save as" name of your student and then email your typed or handwritten letter to lettertomybulldog@drake.edu by August 16 (please include your students name in the subject line of the email). We'll take care of the rest. Happy writing!
