Drexel University's co-op program allows students to gain experience in their field in a real workplace. It's almost like test-driving different career paths.

While being ranked as one of the "ugliest campuses," Drexel has a different charm that anyone can appreciate. There are old, elaborate buildings, such as the admissions building, along with many modern building. There of plenty of activities on campus, and with a short walk, the whole city of Philadelphia is bustling. Growing up in the Northeast makes me appreciate the location of the campus, and everything it has to offer.

The Co-op really stands out from any other college in the area.
