Celebrating Dragons at Play!
Drexel alumni work hard, and play hard! We'll be enjoying the sunshine and rooting for the Phillies in stadiums around the country.

Plus, look for more ways to play with Drexel Dragons through games and contests, too!

Dragons at PlayEnjoying some summer fun!

All month long, Drexel alumni enjoyed the sunshine and our "summer swing" baseball series – an annual series of alumni gatherings and receptions held in conjunction with Major League and Minor League Baseball.

Drexel alumni in southern California spent an evening at the popular Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts and Pageant of the Masters, where they enjoyed ninety minutes of "living pictures"and, before the performance, joined alumni from the area for dinner.

The fun continued at "Dragons Down the Shore," an alumni happy hour held at the Jersey Shore! Alumni enjoyed catching up after a day at the beach with food and drinks at the Windrift Hotel in Avalon, NJ.

Check-out the fun in the Alumni Photo Gallery!
