GNN 2018: Dragon Takeover

In cities small and large, coast to coast and around the world, Drexel alumni are everywhere! At the 8th Annual Global Night of Networking (GNN), join fellow alumni and friends for a Dragon takeover of your city or town.

It’s where alumni work, play and the place many of you call home, and that’s something to celebrate. Spend the night out exploring new opportunities with local connections and most important, have fun!

Enter the #DrexelGNN photo contest!

Participate in the GNN hometown pride photo contest and win a Drexel alumni business prize pack!

For bonus points, print out “Flat Mario” and add him to the photo or use this printable to tell us what you love most about being a Drexel alumni!
