Drexel University
ALUMNI WEEKEND 2014
Friday, May 2 & Saturday, May 3

Every year, Alumni Weekend is the largest and most exciting alumni event held on campus! Drexel alumni come from far and wide to be a part of the celebrations and reunions taking place during the weekend.

This year, members of the Classes of 1964 and 1989 will return to their stomping grounds to commemorate their 50- and 25-year reunions, the Sports Fans of the '50s will reunite for their biennial celebrations, and a number of campus groups will come back for special get-togethers throughout the weekend. A number of Drexel's colleges and schools will open their doors for tours, open houses and meet-and-greets.

We'll hit the ground running on Saturday with the 22nd Annual University City 5K Run and our Alumni Scavenger Hunt—which will take our Dragons across campus and Philadelphia before ending up at one of University City's newest pubs, St. Declan's Well.

And, be sure to not miss the event everyone will be talking about—Drexel After Dark! We'll be taking over the Main Building for the biggest alumni celebration we've ever thrown!

Be a part of the excitement—register below to come back and celebrate!

Experience four floors of fun and entertainment! We've turned the old halls into popular Philadelphia neighborhoods featuring themed food and beverage stations, including the Italian Market, Chinatown and Rittenhouse Square. Start off in the Great Court and pick up your map—you'll need it to navigate the transformation!

Dance the night away in the Great Court where the DJ will be taking requests all night long! Take a break at the café-style seating and coffee areas while sampling local fare. Step up to the bar and sip the infamous Dragontini signature cocktail. Take the elevator or the stairs and explore!

Venture to the 2nd floor and sample a selection of appetizers, carving stations, gourmet sides and desserts. Eat with chopsticks or sample your favorite steak “cheez wit.” Afterward, throw on a hat, mustache or cheap sunglasses and pop into the photo booth for some funny faced photos of you and your friends. Glance over the railing and catch a glimpse of what's happening around you and where you’ll head next!

Looking for something a little more subdued? Then the A. J. Drexel Picture Gallery on the 3rd floor is for you! Stroll into the piano bar, where you'll find lounge seating and reserved tables. Sample wine and cheese pairings while listening to jazz and show tunes. Feel free to sing along! Relax and stay awhile.

The 4th floor is for the young and the young at heart! After hours is the name of the game here, with a playlist created by our young alumni, flights of craft beers from alumni purveyors, blackboard food and beverage specials, Wii games, and all your friends and classmates.

See a little or see it all! No matter where you find yourself, there will be plenty of fun and memorable times with your friends and classmates. And before you say goodnight, be sure to get your photo with The Water Boy and stop by the “Recovery Room” to pick up your takeaway for the ride home.
