Alumni Weekend 2018: May 17 - 19

The rain couldn’t dampen the fun at Alumni Weekend! Dragons descended on campus and throughout Philadelphia for events like the Young Alumni Beer Hall, the College of Medicine Celebration at the Franklin Institute, Drexel Fest at the Zoo and Drexel After Dark. This year also featured great new events including the sold-out Bourbon and Whiskey Tasting and the Golden Dragon Society Dinner at the Ritz-Carlton.


Save the date for next year: May 16 to 18, 2019!

Planning is already underway for the 2019 celebration. We’ll be honoring our alumni celebrating milestone reunions from the 50-Year Class of 1969, the 25-Year Class of 1994 and the 30-Year Class of 1989. If you’re interested in volunteering on one of these reunion committees to help plan your special reunion, email and someone will be in touch with more information.

If your class year ends in a "4" or a "9" and you'd like to help plan your milestone reunion, let us know! Contact the Office of Alumni Relations at
