Due to COVID -19 and to ensure the safety of all our new students and families, we will be offering multiple Fusion First Day events as well as a Virtual Fusion First Day option that will be available online . Each in person event will be limited to 100 students and students will only be allowed to have one guest accompany them. The dates for Fusion First Days are: Friday, June 26 and Tuesday, June 30.    Throughout the day, students will have the chance to meet with faculty, staff, current administrators and current Drury students. Students will also meet a  Fuse 101 professor and classmates for the first time.  Students will also have the opportunity to meet with their orientation groups and receive all important information through the virtual format. If you are unable to attend an in-person event we will send you information to participate in the Virtual Fusion First Day. This will include live virtual residence hall tours, all the important information you need, as well as virtual meetings with your orientation leaders and group.
