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!

  • Denver – Sunday, July 22, 3pm
