Drexel Offering Information Sessions for Sacramento Center

Sacramento, August 14, 2008

Drexel University, a Philadelphia-based institution recognized as a leader in higher education innovation, is currently providing Information Sessions for students interested in attending the university’s new Center for Graduate Studies in Sacramento. The center will begin with five master’s programs in January 2009 and add four more in September 2009. The five programs opening in January are Business Administration, Engineering Management, Higher Education, Information Systems, and Library and Information Science. The Drexel center is intended to address the schedule needs of working adults and will be offered at One Capitol Mall in Sacramento. The Information Sessions in downtown Sacramento all run from 6-7 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency, 1209 L St. The remaining Sacramento sessions will be held Wednesday, Dec. 10. Each hour-long session covers everything students need to know, including how to apply and how to secure financial aid. Drexel staff will be on hand to answer any questions. Refreshments will be served. Students who submit at application while at a session will have their application fee waived. A $10 million Sacramento Leaders Fellowship Fund was established for graduate student support. The fellowships will be awarded annually based on academic qualifications and need, and to encourage partnerships with area businesses, whose up and coming leaders will be able to obtain the practical education they need to succeed. Fellowships will also be available in amounts up to full tuition and are based on the quality of the student’s undergraduate record and professional experience. Drexel’s Sacramento Center will feature state-of-the-art classrooms, including wireless access for student laptops and technology support. Students will be linked to all the resources of Drexel’s main campus, including program resources, financial aid, libraries and career assistance. Sacramento onsite staff will meet the needs of students and faculty, providing a high level of support throughout the educational process. Drexel will also offer its students the ability to meet and learn from business, civic and community leaders, as it has done with such success in Philadelphia.
