No Excellence Without Great Labor

No Excellence Without Great Labor

Original School Motto, 1895

Drexel University is an institution rich in heritage. Anthony J. Drexel, a nineteenth century financial industry leader, established our institution with a philanthropic spirit to provide the working class an opportunity to learn, labor, and achieve excellence. Over a century later, Drexel’s legacy thrives as his institution has grown into a world-class university. However, the history and traditions accumulated over the years have faded from memory.

As students committed to our university’s future growth, we find it vital to look back on what has contributed to our past successes. Reviving Drexel’s traditions is an initiative to empower our generation and connect with the decades of alumni who have gone before us to labor in achieving excellence. Join the Traditions Program in reviving traditions and instilling pride into our campus.
