About Launch

Launch is the only-at-Drew, all-about-you career development platform.

Launch helps you synthesize your experiences, document your successes, and chart a meaningful course. It’s big on mentorship, overflowing with opportunities. And everything you need to propel yourself into a truly (Drewly) amazing life. 

Launch brings together four things: rigorous academics, networked mentorship, purposeful experiences, and a powerful community. What does that mean?  Well, for one, your classes push you to be present and to actively connect what you’re learning with where you want your career to go. For another, you have an incredible network of support – not just faculty mentors (who are there to advise, inspire, and challenge you), but also career, peer and alumni mentors. And that’s huge: it means you leave Drew prepared for a world in which 85% of jobs are filled through networking. 

You’ll also rack up at least two fully immersive, resume-ready experiences before you graduate. We guarantee it. Think internships, high-level research, and volunteer work that makes a real, measurable difference. And you do it all in a community that has your back and is rooting for your success.   

Rigorous Academics

Your liberal arts experience is arrayed around in-depth exploration of areas of academic interest, determining post-college objectives, and launching a career trajectory by design. You work with faculty in innovative, student-centered learning environments and are inspired to connect educational experiences to post-college goals.

Networked Mentorships

You will experience focused, team-based mentoring is the primary mechanism through which you explore your interests, passions, and aspirations and you’ll array your coursework and experiences toward achieving your goals.

Purposeful Experiences

As a Drew student, you’ll complete at least two Immersive Experiences. These real-world applications of your learning help you explore opportunities and prepare for your future. You’ll leave Drew with the sought-after experience preferred by employers hiring new college grads.

Powerful Community

Having chosen Drew for its rigorous academics, networked mentorships and purposeful experiences, you are part of a community in which those principles are valued, elevated and celebrated.
