Drexel's City-Wide Tribute to Forever Dragons
How do you celebrate graduates without a graduation? On June 11, 2020, Drexel University honored the resilient Class of 2020 by turning the lights in Philadelphia blue and gold, including Drexel's Main Building, the iconic Mario statue, Philly's Boathouse Row, and other beloved landmarks. Although Drexel's 2020 University-Wide Commencement Celebration was held virtually and not at Citizen's Bank Park, that did not stop us from celebrating our accomplished graduates.
