Connect with Alumni
Drexel encourages prospective students to reach out to our alumni — Drexel alums are a great resource to get your questions answered. They'll share information about Drexel's academic programs and give you a firsthand account of their co-op experience and how it prepared them for a career following graduation. But their expertise isn't limited to academics — ask them about anything from joining a student organization to living in Philadelphia.
Ask a Dragon
You'll probably meet some of our alumni at admissions events like college fairs and open houses, but you don't need to wait for an event in order to start the conversation. Through the Ask a Dragon program, you can contact Drexel alumni from across the U.S. who are eager to share their perspectives with you. To get you started, we've provided a list of alumni organized by state so you can reach out to someone in your area.

Dragon Alumni Scholarship
As an added bonus, speaking to an alum can help you pay for Drexel with the Dragon Alumni Scholarship. The Dragon Alumni Scholarship program allows graduates of Drexel University to recommend prospective students for admission. Once you've spoken to an alumnus about life at Drexel, you can request a Dragon Alumni Scholarship Recommendation. Be sure to request a recommendation at least two weeks before the deadline to give your recommender enough time to write and submit a recommendation for you.
For more information on the Ask a Dragon program or to learn about the Dragon Alumni Scholarship, please contact our Alumni Ambassador Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dragon Family Scholarship and Drexel Legacy Scholarship
