Drexel Remembers 9/11
On Friday, September 9, the Drexel community gathered in the Great Court of the Main Building for a ceremony to honor those lost in the Sept. 11 attacks. Drexel lost two alumni that day— Timothy P. Soulas, ’89, and Charles E. Sabin, ’69. President John Fry placed a wreath under the statue of Anthony J. Drexel to honor their memory. Fry said “in just a few years, we will begin to see Drexel students who have no firsthand memory of 9/11. It will be our responsibility as a university to help them understand. I hope we’ll teach them not only about the shock and sadness, but also about the heroism, selflessness and togetherness that sustained us.”
Members of the Drexel community were invited to write messages inspired by the anniversary on a banner that will be displayed through the anniversary period. Some messages read "We will never forget," "Gone but not forgotten," and "Peace forever."

If you were unable to attend and sign the banner, you can your memories on Drexel’s Facebook page:
