Alumni Relations

The Office of Alumni Relations strengthens the important alumni-to-alumni, alumni-to-student and alumni-to-Drexel connections. The Office of Alumni Relations is an important resource for all Drexel graduates. We provide tools to help alumni grow both professionally and personally, and offer a wide range of programs including career development, networking, and cultural and educational activities.

Since 2008, Alumni Career Services has provided Drexel graduates with resources and tools for professional growth and development, featuring workshops, alumni-led seminars and panel discussions, as well as networking receptions that help graduates successfully take that “next career step.” A wide range of Alumni Career Services programs and seminars are hosted throughout the year, engaging hundreds of alumni both in person and online.

The Alumni Association hosted one of its signature events, the 4th Annual Alumni Global Night of Networking (GNN), on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. During the GNN, Drexel alumni around the world gather on one night at receptions in their cities to get to know one another and celebrate their shared Drexel connection. At the 2014 GNN, 937 alumni and guests attended in-person receptions. An additional 378 participated in the GNN online by tuning into the Virtual Site on Adobe Connect to watch talks, tours and presentations from Drexel faculty, staff and alumni volunteers.

2014 was a record year for the Alumni Association’s Alumni Holiday Turkey Project which raised more than $20,000 in donations to purchase turkeys for Philadelphia families in need. This event celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014 and is Drexel’s longest-running philanthropic activity. Through the Turkey Project, thousands of area families have received turkeys for warm holiday meals.

The Office of Alumni Relations keeps graduates connected to the University through the Drexel Details alumni e-newsletter and the Drexel Magazine. The Office of Alumni Relations has an active presence on social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter and the Drexel University Alumni Association Networking group on LinkedIn which boasts more than 12,000 members.
