This year's programs will celebrate Drexel's 125th anniversary as well as the last day of classes. Join informal cross-disciplinary conversations with Drexel faculty, professional staff and alumni over drinks and refreshments at this quarter's ScholarSip event. Now in its fifth year, ScholarSip provides an opportunity for stimulating conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term. The event is a reception along with a brief “food for thought” presentation to highlight some of the great cross-disciplinary scholarship at Drexel. 

Richardson Dilworth, co-editor of Building Drexel: the University and its City, 1891 - 2016, will provide the evening's food for thought presentation. He will speak on compiling this book of essays and researching Drexel history. 

ScholarSip is a quarterly event hosted by Drexel University Libraries. This year, in honor of Drexel's 125th anniversary, we are delighted that Drexel's Alumni Relations will be co-sponsoring the event. To suggest a speaker, or for more information about the event, please contact
