Drexel's City-Wide Tribute to Forever Dragons
On June 11, 2020, Drexel University honored the resilient Class of 2020 by turning the lights in Philadelphia blue and gold, including Drexel's Main Building, the iconic Mario statue, Philly's Boathouse Row, and other beloved landmarks.
As the birthplace of the country — and the nation's only World Heritage City — Philadelphia, PA is both a national and international landmark.
Ranked number one in National Geographic's "Best Trips 2020," there are plenty of unique opportunities to take part in, and both Visit Philadelphia and Campus Philly are great resources for you to learn more about it all.
Students at Drexel can access the many artistic, historical, and cultural attractions the city has to offer through region-specific academic courses, civic engagement opportunities, and easy access by public transportation. We refer to the city as our extended campus, and invite you to explore, learn about, and take advantage of all the city has to offer.
Drexel University is proud to promote diversity and cherishes the thought leaders of communities here in Philadelphia and around the globe. Our Dragons are resilient, exceptional, and ready to change the world. In a part of the U.S. with so much rich history, we aspire to carry on the tradition of Philadelphian ingenuity; and we are inspired by the stories of Black heroes from our great city.
