Drexel seniors, graduate students, and young alumni are invited for a night of networking and video games at the trendy Barcade, a combination bar and arcade in Philadelphia. Frank J. Lee, associate professor of game art and production at Drexel, will discuss the evolution of the video game and how the video and arcade games of yesteryear influenced the games we love today. Bring some extra quarters and test your skills with fellow seniors and alumni on classic arcade games like "Joust," "Donkey Kong" and "Ms. Pac-man!"
Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend. For more information, email seniors@drexel.edu
