Three Opportunities for Virtual Connections
December 2, 2020
Dear Drexel Dragon,
One thing that 2020 has taught us all is the importance of staying connected to each other. I encourage you to foster the connections you have with members of the Drexel University family. While we might not be able see each other in person right now, there are still many ways for you to connect with your fellow Dragons and the University community.
Here are three steps you can take:
- Visit DragonLink — With an expansive catalog of Drexel clubs and organizations, you can explore the many virtual opportunities available to you and even find upcoming events that fit your schedule! All you need to do is visit DragonLink and sign in using your DrexelOne credentials. Be sure to keep an eye on DragonLink for our growing calendar of virtual events.
- Follow DrexelOne on Instagram and Facebook — These social media sites are designed to share all things Drexel- and Philly-related with current students like you, such as videos showcasing the resiliency of our Dragons, the city of Philadelphia, and much more! You are encouraged to like, share, and comment on these posts and use the social sites as an opportunity to connect and stay up-to-date with the latest happenings.
- Get Involved With the Rec Center — As one of the top-ranked recreational facilities in Philadelphia, the Drexel Recreation Center is offering virtual programming for all students to enjoy right from their homes! Under the guidance of nationally certified instructors, the Virtual Rec Center is offering a rotating schedule of classes including yoga, Zumba, and BodyCombat. To begin taking advantage of this amazing resource, you can sign up using your Drexel email address.
As always, you can learn more about the steps the University is taking to ensure our community's safety at Drexel's Response to Coronavirus page. This site is constantly updated with the latest health and safety protocols, and we encourage you to visit it often to make sure you remain up to date.
Drexel Dragons are inspiring. For instance, last week College of Nursing and Health Professions and College of Medicine students worked together to test Drexel students, faculty, and staff before the holiday break, wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and applying their expertise and training while supporting the Drexel community during this difficult time.
We know that it can be challenging to feel connected during this time. However, we are more resilient when we are united as a University family.
