Wanted: the Best and Brightest Dragon Alumni for Drexel Magazine's ‘40 Under 40’


Last year, Drexel Magazine reached a milestone with when it named its 200th honoree in the annual list of amazing young alumni — and it has no intention of stopping.

Now through Sept. 4, the University’s alumni magazine is accepting nominations for notable and high-achieving alumni for its sixth annual “40 Under 40” edition. Past honorees have included fashion designers, professional athletes, visionaries and ambitious entrepreneurs. These young Dragons are putting their degrees to work to create, inspire and invent.

Do you know someone who fits the bill — or are you a deserving alumnus yourself? To be eligible, aspiring Dragons must have finished a degree and also must be 39 years old or younger as of March 1, 2018.

Applications must include the nominee’s age, Drexel degree and a high-resolution image of the nominee, plus an essay on why the person deserves to be honored. Nominees will be evaluated based on their personal and professional achievements, awards and recognitions, as well as involvement in the community or advocacy.

Submit your nomination here by Sept. 4, 2017.
