Alumni WeekendAlumni Weekend 2010 — A Celebration for Graduates of All Ages

Spring is on its way, and along with the warmer weather the Drexel University Alumni Association and the Young Alumni Association have plans for lots of exciting events and programs in the Philadelphia area. Take a minute to look at the calendar of events to the right to see what's coming up.

The largest celebration of the entire year is just weeks away — Alumni Weekend 2010. I hope to see lots of you at Alumni Weekend this year, as it's a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and experience a variety of events all over campus. Here is just a highlight of some things I think you'll be especially excited about.

Young Alumni Arts and Ale Adventure. This event is exclusively for Young Alumni, and it will kick off the Alumni Weekend festivities on Thursday, April 29. It's basically two tours in one: a Philadelphia Mural Arts Tour departing from World Café Live, and a tour and tasting at Yards Brewing Company. The evening will end back at World Café Live with a reception and live music. Tickets are limited, so register now before this popular event sells out!

University City 5K Run. Now in it's 18th year, the University City 5K Run through West Philadelphia will take place on Saturday, May 1. It was established in 1993 in memory of Drexel student Nick Pipino who was killed outside of his part-time job. Funds raised from the run and its generous sponsors support the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship Fund for current Drexel students. Each year, experienced runners and amateurs alike, come out to support this great cause. And remember to stick around after the run for the Awards Ceremony and the Family Picnic along Lancaster Walk. Click here to learn more and to register for the run.

University Gala. Don't miss out on the perfect ending to a great weekend! The University Gala is your last chance to celebrate as you enjoy a delicious three-course meal followed by a night of dancing to a live band. Tickets for young alumni are at a special price so come alone, bring a date, or gather a group of friends and purchase an entire table of ten or twelve. More information on the University Gala and all Alumni Weekend events can be found here.
