Welcome back! It's Drexel's 122nd year
January 6, 2014
This month marks the 122nd anniversary of the first classes at Drexel. The Drexel Institute was dedicated in December 17, 1891, but classes didn't begin until January 1892. In fact, '1892' appeared on the Drexel seal at first, until the Institute settled on the 1891 date that we use today. If you walk through the Great Court today, imagine how many students before you have crossed that hall on their way to class in the last 122 years.
