Each fall, LeBow welcomes freshmen from 40 different countries to campus with a competition that incorporates social media, a healthy dose of friendly competition and a chance for a new breed of Drexel Dragons to mingle with some dinosaurs.

Dressed in blue and gold-hued sunglasses and armed with smartphones, over 450 participants break into 50+ teams to compete in the first-ever LeBow Amazing Race. With the support of peer leaders and upperclassmen, each team took to the streets of Philadelphia on a scavenger hunt that challenges the fresh dragons to share Instagram photos of landmarks around the city — including the Art Museum, Rittenhouse Square, the Comcast building and Penn’s Love statue, as well as destinations from all corners of’s campus. It’s a fun way to get to know each other and the new surroundings.
