Senior Year Experience

Helping students prepare for graduation, transition into the “real world”, and to stay connected to Drexel for a lifetime!

The Senior Year Experience (SYE) is a program designed to assist students in preparing for graduation and their transition into the world of work, graduate school, and many other opportunities graduating seniors may pursue. In addition to assisting seniors, the SYE assists new alumni in continuing their ties to the institution beyond graduation, and increase their future financial support, volunteerism and/or alumni giving potential, as well as increase the possibility of retaining them as graduate students in Drexel programs. SYE strives to create strong class unity, a positive experience during final terms, and a greater connection to Drexel.
