A Message from President Fry

At a time when many colleges and universities are facing an unprecedented array of challenges, Drexel University is advancing with great strength, potential and purpose. We continue to deliver on our founder’s promise to provide well-rounded, practical and experiential learning and to ensure access and opportunity by opening our doors wide to each and every talented student.

Our incoming first-year class is more diverse and academically talented than those who preceded it. Nearly a third are the first in their families to go to college. Drexel alumni continue to lead in vital professions while serving as examples to our students, helping us maintain a high level of placement for co-ops in a range of essential and emerging fields.

This year, we also celebrate Drexel’s continued success through:
