Welcome to DrexelNow, the University’s new home for real-time campus news, events, announcements and more.
DrexelNow will be home to stories about our renowned faculty, our groundbreaking research, our athletics, arts and culture, and the many Drexel employees and students making their mark on the world. More plainly, DrexelNow aims to provide a daily snapshot of life at Drexel—its people, its achievements, its ambitions and more.
Along with the biggest campus news items of the day, the site will feature customized sections designed specifically for our core audience groups—students, faculty and professional staff, and Drexel parents. Additionally, all of the best content from the site will be emailed to subscribers on a regular basis, and published in a quarterly print edition, the Drexel Quarterly.
An important feature of DrexelNow is the new University Events Calendar, which can be found at drexel.edu/events or by clicking the link in the top right corner of the homepage. This calendar will be a valuable tool for sharing events and keeping track of happenings on and around campus, including conferences, performing arts, meetings, exhibitions, cultural activities, registration deadlines and more. Calendar users can “like” particular events and share them to various social media sites, as well as set up customized reminders for attendees that can be sent as an email or a text message.
We thank you for visiting DrexelNow and we and invite you to share your feedback. We welcome your story ideas, editorial suggestions and more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
