The discovery and naming of Dreadnoughtus schrani, a 65-ton, supermassive sauropod dinosaur that lived 77 million years ago, was highlighted in the 2014 Drexel University President's Report. Associate Professor Ken Lavocara, PhD, who discovered the dinosaur in Patagonia back in 2005, explains how he and his team digitally scanned Dreadnoughtus’ 145 bones, which can now be studied virtually by researchers all over the world.

The latest president’s report takes the form of a collection of videos and accompanying features highlighting the accomplishments of the University, its faculty, staff, students and community.

There are stories about extraordinary things no other institution could achieve, and some about the ordinary things Drexel does just a little bit better."
