You are of a generation that knows how to face adversity. Over the course of your life, you have witnessed a number of history-altering, milestone events that have shaped how you think, how you operate, and how you see the world. You’ve seen social changes, economic shifts, and have been compelled to overcome challenges never before imagined. Through it all, only one thing has remained consistent: you have not only found the strength and resiliency to continue on, you’ve excelled while doing it — these times are no different.
Right now, it may seem like your life has been put on hold, and, not only that, it’s happened right in the middle of one of the biggest and most important decisions you’ve ever made. But, as a wise person once said many years ago, “This too shall pass.” While we are incredibly disappointed that we’re not currently able to host you here on campus to celebrate your admission in person, we realize that your place in history has afforded you an extremely unique quality: your generation understands and utilizes technology like no other before it. You have the ability to collect, analyze, and act upon data and information in ways that, although it may seem commonplace to you, makes others look on in wonder. That’s why we’ve developed this virtual online experience: by putting together an encompassing collection of videos, stories, facts, and more, we can show you what makes Drexel such an amazing place and do so in a way that you are uniquely able to understand.
We want you to know how proud we are to welcome you as a Drexel Dragon, and we think you’ll accomplish amazing things here. You’ve been through a lot, but it has only served to make you stronger and to give you a deeper perspective of the world around you. This University is designed to help driven and ambitious students like you use that knowledge to make a difference and create positive change.
You remained determined, and you’re ready for what comes next. Your moment begins now.
