Lexerd Yearbook

The Drexel University yearbook has been published each year since 1911. The name Lexerd was first used in 1913.

It was created by the yearbook staff at the time and is the word Drexel spelled backwards. It was chosen because it most accurately portrayed the purpose of the yearbook — to help students, alumni, and the community look back at Drexel University and reflect on the time that they spent here. All previous years' editions of the yearbook are available for viewing in the Drexel Archives, found in the lower level of the W. W. Hagerty Library at 33rd and Market streets.

Dragon families, the 2024 Yearbook is almost here! You can celebrate your graduate's achievements by featuring them in the yearbook. Submit a personalized message or photo to make it a cherished memory.

Senior Portraits

Senior portrait sessions for the undergraduate Class of 2024 are offered throughout the year. Students who sit for a senior portrait will receive a complimentary copy of the Lexerd yearbook during the fall after Commencement. Students who do not take a senior portrait but wish to purchase a copy of the Lexerd can do so through Varsity Yearbook.

There is a $30 portrait sitting fee. Don’t forget that you can use these portraits for your professional networking and job search sites. Don't miss this opportunity to be photographed for the 2024 Lexerd Yearbook!

Students or families interested in purchasing an advertisement in the Lexerd should visit Varsity Yearbook.
