Drexel University

Paul Peck Alumni Center

This building was originally designed by master architect Frank Furness in 1876 as the Centennial Bank Building. It is one of few buildings on Drexel University’s campus that is listed on the National Register of historic buildings. The historic building had been neglected for many years, and was fully renovated to serve as the Paul Peck Alumni Center. 

The renovated historic building features functional spaces for formal receptions and meeting facilities. It also houses an art gallery that displays pieces from the University’s art collection.
