Drexel celebrated its 125th anniversary this week — and Philadelphia did too. Some of the city’s most prominent attractions were lit up in Drexel’s fabled blue and gold in honor of the University’s December 1891 founding and — 125 years later — its December 2016 celebration of the original event.

Here is video of a special Drexel message on the PECO Building:
