Drexel University Publications

Drexel University Publications

Drexel University has several publications to its name by both the students and the university itself.


The Smart Set

The Smart Set, originally known as Dragonfire, is a nonprofit, independent digital magazine about culture and news. The digital magazine is supported by Drexel University and was launched on July 5, 2005. It has a publication schedule of every two weeks.


The Lexerd is the official yearbook of Drexel University. The official Drexel yearbook had two precursors, The Hanseatic and The Eccentric, both published as class books in 1896. The official yearbook was first published in 1911 and was officially named the Lexerd in 1913. It is student-run and the name is simply "Drexel" spelled backwards. The Lexerd has won several awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. In 1980 it won third place, in 1981 second place, in 1982 it won first place, and in 1983 it won second place again in its annual contest. In April 2006 The Triangle reported that the yearbook may not publish due to shortage of student volunteers, but the Lexerd has continued to publish.


MAYA is the undergraduate student literary and artistic magazine. Maya has been around for decades, but then took a nine-year hiatus; it was resurrected in June 2006. It accepts poetry, prose, short stories, creative nonfiction, photography, and other art.
