Since Drexel isnt a very sport related school, the Greek community fills that void. As a member of the Greek community myself, i can say that all of the fraternities and sororities usually try to host events for nongreek students to raise money. My fraternity Theta Chi has held a few barbecues and brunches to raise money for The USO. Another fraternity on campus Alphs Epsilon Pi held a pie in the face contest to raise money for cancer research. As a member of Theta Chi we have the optiom to live in our fraternity house at a rate of 550 a month, which is very cheap in comparison to apartment buildings in the area. The greek community helped me in my time of need when i was struggling with roommate issues, and the brothers of Theta Chi helped me get through everything. Overall, joining Greek life was the best decision i have made so far!

If you receive the long sought-after generous scholarship or have a family willing to invest in the hefty price tag and want very practical career training it is 100% the school for you. But be careful, when you're accepted the scholarship looks big until you see how much tuition is. Oh, and institutional aid isn't pegged to tuition inflation so even though tuition goes up a few percent each year, your scholarships don't. Do careful calculations! If you're interested in co-op and are going to college for a specific career it's a wonderful place to be. If you just want a solid broad-base undergraduate education it might not be the best.

The community, the city, the faculty, they're all working optimally together as reasons why I couldn't leave! I've never felt that my dreams were more realistic than I did at my school, recieving praise from my teachers and colleagues alike. I made great friends, and really had opportunities to be the man of my life, so my school has caused me to mature exponentially. I wouldn't choose it all over again, to be in a place where I'm babied all day long. My roommates and my faculty are all older than me, but they treat me like an adult. If I'm going to make it in my career, I have to gain the confidence to push form my desires. My school has helped with that beyond and then some.
