Global Night of Networking, Drexel Alumni, #DrexelGNN

GNN 2017

A Worldwide Celebration of the Drexel Connection

No matter where you are, you're always close to Drexel. That's what over 700 Dragons in 25 cities proved during the 7th Annual Global Night of Networking on Sept. 13. Alumni all over the world came together to reunite with old classmates, make new connections and celebrate their Drexel pride at local happy hours and through online networking sessions. Thank you to all the volunteers who made the day possible and to everyone who joined in the fun, either in-person or online!

Be sure to check out our online photo gallery for the best moments from the global celebration.
