Alumni Magazine - Fall 2015
Resources and Opportunities
Dear Fellow Alumni:
Your Alumni Association Board has been hard at work on your behalf, and there is much to report about new programs and engagement opportunities for graduates from all eras.

First and foremost, we are launching two LinkedIn groups with the goal of connecting you, our alumni, with our current students. Dragons to Doctors will connect us to fourth-year medical students who wish to seek our insight as they plan and launch their residencies and careers. Dragon Connects will connect our Graduate School alumni with PhD students who wish to gather insight into their research, laboratory experiences and career paths. Watch your inbox for an email and your mailbox for a postcard inviting you to sign up soon.
Second is the announcement that we will be combining our traditional Alumni Weekend for milestone reunion classes, our 50-Year Reunion and our Grand Classes Gathering into one Alumni Weekend on May 19-21, 2016. This weekend will feature a welcome reception at Dinosaur Hall of The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, class-specific social activities, induction of the Classes of 1991 into the Silver Dragon Society, interactive demonstrations, guest lectures, a trip to the Legacy Center & Archives, and the Dean’s Award Luncheon. The tradition will continue with the Classes of 1966 celebrated on stage at commencement, followed by their induction into the Golden Dragon Society. If your class graduated in a year ending in 1 or 6, this weekend is for you.
We want your participation in whatever way works for you. Opportunities abound for all alumni: share knowledge and experience on career panels, attend regional receptions, present as a guest lecturer or join one of our LinkedIn groups described above. Lastly, you can make your annual gift.
To learn more about these and other ways to be a presence, go to drexelmed.edu/alumni-volunteer.
