Celebrating A.J.'s 189th

September 21, 2015

This year is the 189th anniversary of Anthony J. Drexel's birth.

To commemorate it, the Drexel University Alumni Association and the Drexel Fund brought 700 of the newest Dragons out Monday (the day after Drexel's actually birthday) to celebrate in the sunshine.

Students donned blue and gold mustaches to bear a closer resemblance to the mustachioed birthday boy, took part in a scavenger hunt and ate free Little Baby's Ice Cream out on Perelman Plaza. 

For the first-year students, it was another part of Welcome Week, which is designed to get new students familiar with the campus that will be their home for the next several years.
