Check Out What the New Year
Has In Store for You!

Young AlumniThe Drexel University Alumni Association and the Young Alumni Association have so much planned for January and February; we're bringing it all to you in this special edition Young Alumni e-Newsletter!

Homecoming 2010 is on Saturday, January 23 — that’s less than two weeks away so register now! For one package price, enjoy a full day of fun events and activities, including a tailgate brunch, pre-game alumni reception, men’s basketball game, and an after-party happy hour featuring appetizer and drink specials and a rousing game of Drexel Quizzo. Come out and show your Drexel pride!

Young Alumni are also invited to attend How To Buy Your First Home on Thursday, February 11, 2010. If you’re thinking about becoming a homeowner or want to learn more about the current real estate market and how to take advantage of the first-time home buyer’s tax credit, then this is the event for you. Join us at Estia Restaurant in Philadelphia for a discussion featuring guest speakers Joan Kamens '78, a Coldwell Banker residential realtor, and Michael D’Alonzo '84, president of Creative Mortgage Group.

These are just some of the many exciting programs and events we have planned for the Philadelphia area this winter. For more information, and to register, check out the full calendar of events to the right.
