It also examines the brief history of the Student Army Training Corps (S.A.T.C.), the forerunner of today’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (R.O.T.C.) program, when the college was
located at 17th and Stiles Streets
in Philadelphia.

The exhibit is located on the 2nd floor of the Francis A. Drexel Library and will run through January of 2016.
