Sports Fans of the '50s

Since 1988, this special group of Drexel sports fans from the 1950s era has met every two years during Alumni Weekend, held the first weekend of May. Only about half of the Sports Fans of the '50s group actually participated in a varsity sport during their Drexel days, but the one thing that all members have in common is a shared passion for Drexel sports teams.
