New College Video
January 11, 2008
The highlight of the Drexel social season is the annual A.J. Drexel Society Gala. Each fall, Drexel thanks its biggest supporters with an elegant evening of dining and dancing. The best part of this year's gala will be the premiere of the new Westphal College video, featuring impressive work by our students. Click here to watch the video which was masterfully produced and edited by Film & Video student Micah Haun, with Music Industry student Matt Campana's original score and graphics by Graphic Design student Maggie Ruder.
The College was delighted to assist in many of the preparations for this year's Gala. Media Arts Department Head Sandy Stewart and Graphic Design Program Director Jody Graff created invitations, banners and menus, and selected the motifs for table decorations. Senior VP for Institutional Advancement Elizabeth Dale will wear a gown designed by Fashion graduate Autumn Kietponglert. Autumn won "Best in Show' at the 2007 Fashion Show and worked with Katya Roelse, winner of the Lilly Pulitzer prize for "Most Creative Graduate Collection', on constructing the dress. All Gala guests will go home with an array of items created by Westphal students including the D&M Magazine, the 2008 Photography Annual, and MAD Dragon Records latest album release, Matt Duke's Kingdom Underground.
