A record number of alumni and guests came to campus for Alumni Weekend on May 19 and 20 to celebrate with 2,000 friends, family and fellow Dragons at more than 40 events both in West Philadelphia and around the city. Among the highlights were a German-style beer hall created inside Main Building, an afternoon of picnicking and face painting among the animals at the Philadelphia Zoo, and a series of special receptions at the Logan Hotel.

The weekend also played host to the Class of 1967’s 50-Year Reunion, where Golden Dragons relived their Drexel days and shared memories with old friends at a welcome breakfast and luncheon in the familiar surroundings of the Great Court.

For the weekend’s final festivities, generations of graduates and guests gathered at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University to party among dinosaur bones and butterflies as the jazz band known as Fresh Cut Orchestra provided the perfect tunes to wrap up Alumni Weekend in style.
