On Monday, June 11th, over forty Drexel faculty and professional staff gathered to toast the last day of spring classes and join in cross-disciplinary conversations at the second ScholarSip event. Drexel’s athletic director and Carl R. Pacifico Professor of Neuropsychology, Eric Zillmer provided the evening’s ‘food for thought’ with an insightful presentation on the psychology of terrorism.
January brought football to the Libraries for two Dragons on the Gridiron events on Wednesday, January 18th and Saturday, January 28th. This exhibition, tracing the history of football at Drexel University, was unveiled at 4 p.m. at the Opening Reception on January 18th to an audience of students, staff, and football alumni. Materials and memorabilia from the University Archives were used in the exhibit.
The opening reception featured a dynamic conversation about the evolving role and increased emphasis of athletics in higher education, and current Drexel director of athletics, Dr. Eric Zilmer, helped to add an insider perspective to the discussion.
