Hello and Happy Spring!

We are gearing up for a list of activities and events planned for the next few months. May is starting off strong with the Drexel Alumni Weekend! See details below and link for registration.

On April 29, we had our quarterly conference call for the 8 Alumni Affinity Groups that exist. The other groups have events coming up which we hope we can get some Drexel Hellenic Alumni Network members to attend and plus we will be having some events this Spring and early Summer — so stay tuned!

Please feel free to add any Greek Alumni to our group on Facebook or send us e-mail addresses to stay connected!



Drexel Almuni Weekend
http://www.drexel.edu/alumni/weekend.asp

Friday, May 2 & Saturday, May 3

Every year, Alumni Weekend is the largest and most exciting alumni event held on campus! Drexel alumni come from far and wide to be a part of the celebrations and reunions taking place during the weekend.
This year, members of the Classes of 1964 and 1989 will return to their stomping grounds to commemorate their 50- and 25-year reunions, the Sports Fans of the '50s will reunite for their biennial celebrations, and a number of campus groups will come back for special get-togethers throughout the weekend. A number of Drexel's colleges and schools will open their doors for tours, open houses and meet-and-greets.

We'll hit the ground running on Saturday with the 22nd Annual University City 5K Run and our Alumni Scavenger Hunt—which will take our Dragons across campus and Philadelphia before ending up at one of University City's newest pubs, St. Declan's Well. And, be sure to not miss the event everyone will be talking about—Drexel After Dark! We'll be taking over the Main Building for the biggest alumni celebration we've ever thrown!

Be a part of the excitement—register below to come back and celebrate!

16th Annual Toy Drive

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailfacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

 

It's project time everyone!  We know it's a very busy time of the year, but we need your small contribution!   Let's work as a team to collect as many toys as possible to donate on behalf of our new Drexel Hellenic Alumni Network.

For those of you not in Philadelphia, that is not a problem at all, perhaps you can send something via snail mail or encourage others in the Philadelphia area to donate.

The Drexel University Office of Government and Community Relations has begun its 16th Annual Holiday Toy Drive.  If you would like to donate any new, unwrapped toys (no toy weapons please), we will be collecting donations at all alumni events prior to December 12.

Our 2 options for donating are:

  1. Weekend drop off at the DAC (Daskalakis Athletic Center)

    • Carissa Fafalios (cxfafa at gmail.com) will be at the DAC Recreation Center Lobby to collect your donations on December 1, 2, and 8, 9 from 1pm to 3pm.  If any members would like to volunteer to collect donations or arrange alternate drop off, please e-mail Carissa at cxfafa at gmail.com
  2. Weekday drop off at the Alumni Office in the Peck Alumni Center

    • Joanne Hunt (jh882 at drexel.edu) of the Drexel Alumni Office will be happy to receive the donated toy(s) and will connect with you to make sure it is retrieved  properly before the drive ends.  Make sure you write on your toy a note that specifies that it is from the Drexel Hellenic Alumni Network (DHAN).

 

Thank You All!
