Saturday, June 6
4-6 p.m., Drexel Boathouse
Senior students and alumni are invited to get together and celebrate the graduating class at the annual Bon Voyage Graduation Celebration, based on an tradition as old as Drexel itself. In 1895, Drexel's first President, James MacAlister, would often cancel classes and allow Drexel students to go to Cramps Shipyard along the Delaware River to watch the war ships set sail. In honor of this long lost tradition, the Drexel Traditions Program started a new one in 2008 entitled “Bon Voyage,” where seniors celebrate their accomplishments with an annual party hosted at the Drexel boat house or other location near a Philadelphia river.
