Alumni join in the discussion at the Opening Reception
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.
