Drexel University alumni, students, and others can show their support to the college every time they use a credit card offered through a university/U.S. Bank partnership. Each time a card is activated and each time it’s used, the university benefits.

MINNEAPOLIS & PHILADELPHIA–Drexel University has created a new affinity credit card partnership with U.S. Bank that benefits Drexel University each time a new card is activated, and again each and every time that card is used.

“The new Drexel University credit card from U.S. Bank offers students, alumni and employees an opportunity to support the university’s programs and initiatives,” said Drexel University president Constantine Papadakis. “By using the card, the extended Drexel community can show off its Drexel pride and at the same time benefit current students and the University.”

Students, alumni and employees, who carry the Drexel card, will have access to a variety of credit cards offered through this U.S. Bank partnership, including one that earns reward points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise, cash and travel rewards. Not only does the partnership improve Drexel University’s ability to offer members high-quality affinity credit products, but U.S. Bank has also stepped forward in a big financial way as a key corporate partner for the long haul.

“U.S. Bank is committed to the long-term development of campus facilities and scholarships and we look forward to the opportunities that exist by bringing together the expertise of our two organizations. It is our pleasure to provide valuable card products and services to the Drexel University community in support of its mission,” said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank.

The new cards are available through the Drexel University alumni website at
