Flight is a first-year cohort program that facilitates success and helps students of color “take off” on their Drake journey. The program includes a pre-Welcome Weekend experience, a First-Year Seminar, and development, support, and success throughout the year.
Through the program, students acclimate to Drake University while also gaining knowledge of the resources available to them. The Flight program focuses on three areas of connection: fellow Flight students, Drake offices, faculty, and staff, and the Des Moines community.
Your support during All In allows participation in Flight to be free for all students and contributes to the exploration of diversity and equality within the student experience.
