See who turned out for distinctlyDrake Chicago [photos/video]

May 11, 2011

Even the ceiling of the Burnham Ballroom at the JW Marriott glowed blue on April 8, when Chicagoland alumni gathered to experience a distinctlyDrake evening in the Windy City.

The Burnham Ballroom at the JW Marriott in Chicago was the venue for the April 2011 distinctlyDrake event.

The event brought Drake downtown by both showcasing campus life and connecting current members of the Drake community with regional alumni and friends.

Campaign co-chair Peggy Fisher, FA'70, catches up with alum Vinaya Sharma, BN'93.

Alumni enjoyed sharing their stories in the video booth.

Alumni were encouraged to share their Drake "love stories" in a special video booth set up at the event. Watch even more videos or share your own at distinctly.drake.edu.

    Classy & Sassy!  Could not have enjoyed myself more. Felt like CinderFella having to leave the stunningly blue & gold  ballroom and take the train back home to suburbia. Thanks, Dr. Maxwell.
