Year of the Dragon: November 2012


Dragons Celebrating Dragons!
During November we want to say "thank you" to the many alumni volunteers who have given their time and talents to the Alumni Association and the University. We will encourage alumni to share their gratitude with faculty and staff who made a positive impact on their lives in some way.

Thank a Drexel Faculty or Staff Member
All month long, alumni will have the opportunity to say "thank you" to Drexel faculty and staff.

A few words of appreciation can go a long way and we encourage you to think back and remember those who made your Drexel experience that much better, and send them a note of gratitude.

Maybe it was a professor whose lessons energized and excited you. Or it could have been an advisor who helped you stay on a path to success. Whoever it was, and whatever the reason, we want to give you the chance to say thanks – just in time for Thanksgiving – and to make their day a little brighter!

Thank a Drexel Alum
Is there a fellow graduate from your Drexel days that you would like to thank, such as a classmate, an old roommate, or a fraternity brother? If so, fill in the brief form we've put together and we'll do our best to forward them your message of thanks!

We do not have updated e-mail addresses for all Drexel alumni, so we cannot guarantee that your message will be delivered. We will notify you and let you know the status of your message.

Need Some Inspiration?
In the next issue of the Drexel Magazine, we asked the 2012 Alumni Association Award recipients, "If you were to thank a person or group at Drexel, who would it be, and why?" Click here to see their responses, and maybe get some inspiration for your own thank you message!
