Graduate Student Day

Graduate Student Association and Graduate College Presents Drexel Graduate Student Day

Celebrating Drexel's Graduate & Professional Student Community

Graduate Student Day, hosted by the Graduate Student Association (GSA) and the Graduate College, is an annual occasion recognizing the outstanding contributions of graduate and professional students and those who serve students within the classroom, lab, community, society, and beyond.

During the celebratory event, the Graduate College recognizes high-achieving graduate and professional students with Graduate Student Excellence Awards across disciplines in mentorship, scholarship, civic engagement, service, research, and teaching assistance. Award winners from the annual Drexel Emerging Graduate Scholars (DEGS) Conference are also recognized during the ceremony. A reception with hors d'oeuvres and refreshments then follows.

All University community members, family, friends and guests are welcome and encouraged to attend.
