A collaboration between the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Philadelphia History Museum is showing what happens when the ingenuity and creativity of Drexel students and staff collides with one of Philadelphia’s oldest and most beloved holiday traditions. Five Drexel students created a behind-the-scenes exhibit celebrating the 45th anniversary of George Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker.” On display from […]
President John A. Fry informed students via email Nov. 19 that the University will move from annual billing to quarterly billing starting in fall 2014, in response to student feedback. Fry stated that the new system will increase academic flexibility, simplify the billing process, and reduce the administrative burden on students and their families. Students […]
After a more than disappointing start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers finally seem to be turning things around. The Orange and Black have gone 6-2-1 in their last nine games to put themselves back into the playoff picture after the first quarter of the season. The Flyers have found their scoring touch in their […]
There was some excitement to be found from the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams following their performance Nov. 22-24 in the Frank Elm Invitational at the Rutgers University Aquatic Center. The Dragons didn’t come home with a first-place finish, but they have proven themselves valid competitors in the Colonial Athletic Association. This year’s […]
Facing their biggest test of the season, the Drexel women’s basketball team gave the No. 8 University of Maryland its closest competition of the young season.

For decades, the ultimate diplomatic goal of South Korea and North Korea has been reunification. Both countries assume that if they reunify, the economic, social and military strength of the nation as a whole would increase tremendously. Unfortunately, I would argue that the reunification would result in the complete opposite because of the huge economic […]
Drexel University’s Co-op Theatre Co. and the Drexel Players performed “The Apple Tree,” a playful musical of three acts, Nov. 21-24. They did a wonderful job of transporting the award-winning 1966 piece by Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Jerome Coopersmith from Broadway to The Mandell Theater. Like the rest of the Co-op Theatre’s season, the […]
Both the men’s and women’s squash teams returned to the home courts for Drexel over the weekend. Unfortunately, things quickly went south, and both teams lost their first two matches Nov. 22 and 23. They both did, however, manage to salvage the final match of the weekend. Nov. 22 was when Drexel officially opened the […]
Nothing changes the momentum in wrestling quite like a pin. Worth six points on the scoreboard, a pin can reignite the fire under a team and alter the course of an entire dual meet. David Pearce’s pin Nov. 16 against Kagan Squire of Ohio University at the Eastern Michigan Open helped the Dragons get out […]
The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Toronto Raptors 108-98 Nov. 20, and the score misleadingly implies that the game was a close one. Typically a subpar three-point shooting team (shooting 32.6 percent as a team before the game, a percentage that ranked 22nd out of 30 teams in the NBA), the Raptors were simply unconscious […]
The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of a bye week, riding a three-game winning streak that has them tied for first place in the NFC East. After starting out 3-5 in the first half of the season and allowing over 24 points per game on defense, the Eagles have won three straight since, giving […]
This week marked the sesquicentennial of the Gettysburg Address, the most famous speech of Abraham Lincoln’s presidency. In a rare and unexpected journalistic move, the Harrisburg Patriot-News chose to recognize this occasion Nov. 14 by retracting an editorial published by its predecessor, the Patriot & Union, shortly after Lincoln gave the address. The retracted editorial […]
Former NASA astronaut and Drexel University alumnus Jim P. Bagian visited Philadelphia Nov. 19 to lecture at Drexel’s College of Medicine. Bagian, who graduated from Drexel as a mechanical engineer but obtained a doctor of medicine degree from Thomas Jefferson University, spoke on the medical aspects of spaceflight.

Each week, a team of volunteer Drexel medical and health profession students files out of a large van onto a street corner in Southwest Philadelphia and joins Dr. Stacey Trooskin, assistant professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine. This street team offers free HIV and hepatitis C testing in Philadelphia’s most at-risk […]
Four games into the still-young 2013-14 season, the Drexel men’s basketball team has already begun to craft a winning recipe. In their victories in the opening rounds of the National Invitation Tournament Season Tip-Off over Elon University and Rutgers University at the Rutgers Athletic Center, the Dragons followed a similar pattern. They used steady defense […]
In their 2013-14 season home opener, the Drexel women’s basketball team completed a 17-point comeback against the Friars of Providence College. The Dragons found themselves down by as much as 17 in the first half, but the team received a second-half surge off the bench from freshman Alexis Smith to emerge victorious over Providence 62-52. […]
These past two months, it cannot have escaped your notice that Drexel has celebrated Columbus Day, Halloween and Veterans Day. Nor is it any secret that students and the University are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is, of course, most displeasing, for the celebration of American holidays excludes our non-American student body and […]
As the leaders of Pennsylvania research universities, we represent institutions that are large and small; private and public; urban and rural; ivy and land grant. Yet for our many differences, we are united in our commitment to serving the public good. We’re grateful for the support that taxpayers have shown our institutions during challenging economic […]
As the temperature drastically drops, the only way to survive is to bundle up. However, that doesn’t mean dressing up like you are in a circus.
