Senior Year Experience

Graduation 2015

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

The Senior Year Experience (SYE) program is designed to help students prepare for graduation and transition into the world of work, graduate school and any number of options Drexel graduating seniors may eventually pursue. The SYE program will create stronger class unity, a positive experience during their final terms and a greater connection to Drexel as graduating students prepare to move on into the next chapter of their lives so they can stay connected to the University for a lifetime.


Program offerings include career preparation programs, special lectures and speaker presentations, social and networking events, and many other activities. Services include special publications for seniors (such as the New Graduate and Life After Graduation guides), senior-specific email communications and a central website with event listings, graduation information, and resources for seniors.

The program supports Drexel's mission and goals, demonstrates excellence in campus collaboration, delivers exceptional results while efficiently working with minimal funding, and exemplifies Drexel's core competencies while fostering Drexel pride and spirit amongst our graduating seniors and recent alumni.
