    The Global Night of Networking is a night of fun, laid back, networking receptions held at the same time in locations all over the globe. Dragons come out in full force to represent the cities in which they live and work and to swap stories, relax after a long day at work and share in their blue and gold pride. With so many gatherings taking place all around the world, it’s kind of like New Year’s Eve…Drexel style!

  • Turkey Project

    Drexel’s longest-standing alumni tradition brings together graduates, faculty, staff, students and friends to provide holiday meals to members of the community. One hundred percent of the Alumni Turkey Project proceeds are used to support families within the University's West Philadelphia neighborhood, elderly individuals struggling with housing and hunger insecurity, those afflicted with HIV/AIDS, individuals who currently reside in temporary or transitional housing, victims of domestic violence, and those served by Drexel's Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships and 11th Street Family Health Services.
