Get Involved at Drexel!
As you begin your time here as a Drexel Dragon, your schedule will soon be filled with
dynamic classes. But you need more to lead you to success. Your Drexel experience will
focus on student involvement, and that goes beyond the basics. Here at Drexel, you can expect to boost your leadership skills
by taking a key role in your favorite club, meet new friends at one of many lively events
on campus, and find a supportive community that shares your passions. From a variety of student organizations, sports, Fraternity and Sorority life, and more both on- and off-campus, you can get involved right now. And we're here to support you through it all.
Our extracurriculars are designed with you in mind. From clubs to leadership to Fraternity and Sorority life — there's a place for every Drexel Dragon to get involved.
Find out more information on all the ways to get involved with Student Life.
Our Dragons are active in over 350 clubs and organizations throughout campus, which means there's a community for every interest.
Students rave about on-campus groups such as the Campus Activities
Board (CAB), Drexel's largest student-run event-programming
organization, and a range of other clubs such as the Community
Student Association, Drexel Indian Student Association, and Drexel
CyberDragons. If your ideal club isn't
represented in that 350+, we'll give you the tools to begin it yourself! Make sure to check out the Involvement Fair, held each fall and spring quarter. There, you can find out how to get connected on campus and check out over 150 of our campus organizations.
You can even represent your fellow undergraduates as an officer for the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA), where you'll grow as an individual and as a leader.
You can learn more about all of the current student-run organizations, as well as their upcoming events, at DragonLink, where you can log in using your Drexel credentials.
At Drexel, we have a handful of featured events, we call traditions, that students look forward to each year — and now you can too!
Drexel students are active around campus all year long — your fun begins
during your First 100 Days as a Drexel student, starting with Welcome Week
and continuing with the following events, plus many more.
Beginning with the First 100 Days and the DragonFly Concert, your first fall quarter will be full of engaging with campus organizations and departments, plus a ton of free food. Then, throughout the rest of the year, you can join in on Dragons after Dark, which often includes Quizzo and snacks, every Thursday night. By the time Homecoming (our week-long celebration of Drexel pride) rolls around the corner sometime in the winter term, you may want to join the Homecoming Court or the series of competitive group events that could win you money, known as the Homecoming Student Competition.
Other events to keep an eye on include the Impact Awards, our University City 5K, the Drexel Drag Show, and Greek Week.
More information about our many fun-filled traditions can be found at Programs and Events.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
For over 120 years, Fraternity and Sorority life has been one of our longest-standing aspects of Student Life!
The fraternity and sorority life experience is all about brotherhood (fraternities) and sisterhood (sororities), leadership of the highest standard, excellence in academic performance, and service to the community.
With 35 chapters and 1,500 undergraduate participants, you may find that "Going Greek" is right for you, too. Cultural organizations also enhance student success through educational initiatives and hazing prevention. Plus, members participate in Greek Week: a popular series of events when our
fraternity and sorority members go head to head in athletic, creative, and philanthropic
competitions while promoting Greek life core values.
Learn more about our many Greek life options at Fraternity and Sorority Life.
Whether you're climbing the Rec Center rock wall, showing your Drexel pride as part of the DAC Pack, or bringing our Dragons to victory during a game, staying active is a big part of campus culture!
More than 450 students every year compete against the best
players in the nation in our 18 Division I NCAA teams. Our men's and women's Division I teams are active in basketball, soccer, crew, lacrosse, swimming, squash, and more. Our
official Dragon fan base is always right there, roaring from
the sidelines as part of the DAC Pack. If you're looking to join the action yourself, then you could opt for joining one of our 34 club sports, like ultimate or paintball; entering an intramural sport team, such as flag football, basketball, or soccer; enjoying a casual beach volleyball game at Buckley Green; or trying your hand at our rock wall.

Diversity and Inclusion at Drexel
The Student Center for Diversity & Inclusion (SCDI) supports and empowers students of all backgrounds as they build a sense of community that reflects the diversity of Drexel University's student body. Our office engages Drexel's AHLANA1, LGBTQIA+2, first generation, and international student populations through direct advocacy and intentional identity-based community building. We are active advocates for student diversity, intersectional social justice, and education on campus; and we work to ensure our students feel their whole identity is included and respected during their time here at Drexel.
- AHLANA: African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian, Native American
- LGBTQIA+: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual and/or Ally
Drexel students come from all walks of life and the Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion is here to help make sure every Dragon feels welcome, supported, and celebrated. Learn more about how we can connect you with the rich diversity that makes up the Drexel University community.
