This year, Alumni Weekend is a city-wide celebration! Drexel is taking over Philadelphia with signature events that will spark your Dragon spirit. Share memories, reunite with friends and relive your Drexel days with a weekend of unforgettable alumni experiences.
Class of 1967
This is a milestone year as you celebrate your 50-year reunion and induction into the Golden Dragon Society. Friday of Alumni Weekend is all about our Golden Dragons as we welcome you back to campus for a time to reminisce about the good old days and catch up on where life has taken you since graduation. For some, it will be your first trip back in five decades! See how much has changed as well as what's remained the same. Then stick around for a day full of Alumni Weekend festivities on Saturday where there is truly something for everyone!
Class of 1987
Plan your trip now and spend the weekend connecting with old friends, reliving memories of your student days and catching up on the last 30 years with your classmates. We're commemorating your 30-year Reunion with a special reception at the Logan Hotel which many of you might remember as the old Four Seasons. Then, close out Alumni Weekend just around the corner with Drexel After Dark at the Academy of Natural Sciences.
Class of 1992
Congratulations to the Class of 1992 on your 25-year Reunion! You and your classmates – our newest Silver Dragons - are invited back to Alumni Weekend for a special reception on Saturday, May 20. The newly renovated Logan Hotel, with its modern feel and cool artwork, serves as the backdrop for your reception. Then head around the corner to eat, drink and dance your way through Drexel After Dark at the Academy of Natural Sciences!
Young Alumni Beer Hall
Our Friday night event for graduates of the last ten years has become one of the newest Alumni Weekend traditions. This year, we will transform an on-campus space into a Beer Hall for an evening of fun by the pint-full where you can sip on Dragon's Gold, the Drexel-inspired craft beer from Flying Fish Brewing Company (founded by Drexel alum Gene Muller '83), jam to music and chow down on food with your fellow alumni and friends. Cheers to being a Dragon!
Family Day at the Zoo
Strap on your safari hats and head to the Philadelphia Zoo for Family Day during Alumni Weekend. Explore the wonders of the wild in America's First Zoo and the home to over 1,300 animals, from spider monkeys to sloths. With activities for children of all ages including a live animal show and face painting, this Drexel themed day in one of Philadelphia's favorite places will be an event the whole family can enjoy.
Drexel After Dark
Dine and drink the night away among dinosaur bones and butterflies at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University – the oldest continually operating natural history museum in the Western Hemisphere. Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer and a specialty cocktail as you hop from one exhibit to the next and close Alumni Weekend in one of the most unique venues in the city.
