Discover the rich history of Drexel University at the first in a 3-part film screening presented by the Drexel University Archives!

University Archives staff will share rarely-screened archival video that reflects life on campus in the mid-1990s. The opening event will feature:

  • A comic, musical skit written for the Drexel 100 Year Anniversary in 1991 that puts A. J. Drexel and family on stage to tell you about their lives and joke about their legacies. Starring Drexel descendant Livingston Ludlow Biddle, Jr., and a whole host of very earnest local actors
     
  • What *is* ethical research anyway? Watch these very 90s scientists wrestle with questions about tweaking experiment results and when, exactly, taking inspiration from a colleague becomes intellectual property theft. Featuring 1 amazing mullet and >1 adorable lab rat

Bring your lunch and your curiosity about Drexel’s history – we’ll provide the popcorn!

This event is open to all Drexel students, faculty and staff, and members of the public.

Each event includes social time to build acquaintances and a short “food for thought” presentation from a member of the Drexel community. ScholarSip provides an opportunity for members of the Drexel community to gather for conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term.
