Inside Ambition: Does anyone even know who we are??

IA is back with a whole new show! Things may look different, but no need to worry, we’re still bringing you the latest on all things sports, arts, education, Philadelphia, and Drexel!

In this week’s episode, Alexandra George heads out to the Drexel streets and asks our classmates if they even know what IA is? The results were…interesting. Next, Emily McAndrews brings sports back to IA with a recap of our Dragons’ spring season.

Then, we flash back to June with Liv Jone’s coverage of the PHS Flower Shower. We had so much fun, we didn’t want to…leaf ;). Finally, Eva Kraus and Ava Kataria discuss the ISUxUSGA town hall that voiced Drexel’s international students’ concerns over employment with the university.

All new format!
