No matter where they are, alumni are always close to Drexel. That’s what over 700 Dragons in 25 cities proved during the 7th Annual Global Night of Networking on Sept. 13. Alumni all over the world came together to reunite with old classmates, make new connections and celebrate their Drexel pride at local happy hours and through online networking sessions. Thank you to all the volunteers who made the day possible and to everyone who joined in the fun, either in person or online.

Words of Wisdom

A Drexel education teaches you much more than what you’ll find in a textbook or a classroom. To gear up for GNN, alumni shared some of their most valuable words of wisdom with one another and with current Drexel students.

“While your studies are a critical part of why you’re going to Drexel, don’t forget to take time to explore all that Philadelphia has to offer! Life is all about balance!” Joe Dillon, BS ’91
Network sooner rather than later.”Devon Pope, JD ’15
“Your time at Drexel is what you make of it. There are infinite opportunities available to you, but whether or not you take advantage of them will determine your personal growth and success. Go get ‘em Dragons!”Lauren Patterson, MBA ’10
