4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really do love my school! Its' great! Since it is located in the city of Philadelphia there is always something fun and exciting to do on and around campus. The teachers and professors are great people and really strive to help students achieve their best. I like the layout of the campus and all the nice athletic facilities that are convenient and high quality.

I would choose this school all over because of the Co-op opportunity which is the fact that my school sets me up with 3 internships while I am an undergrad. This is an amazing working experience and also what make my school so unique!

Overall Experience: Drexel is great because it's filled with opportunities for experience in your field. Co-op is definitely a selling factor but on top of that there is numerous options for work study jobs affiliated with your course of study. It also has an abundance of clubs pertaining to any interest you may have. Teachers are helpful and workload is manageable if you budget your time correctly. It's also in great proximity to the beautiful center city Philadelphia.

Overall Experience: The school is great and challenging. It is very fast pace due to trimesters. The coop system is fantastic for experience. The only true downfall is the price. I am in debt up to my ears. That is why I need as much scholarship as possible. I have two other siblings in college and we all are paying for school ourselves.

Overall Experience: During accepted students day at my school, I really liked the Professor from the School of Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University. The campus was really nice, and I could definitely see myself here for the next five years.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I visited, I saw a different Drexel than what it is now. If you are not a Business, Engineering, or Computer Science Major, your major is treated terribly. The food on campus is awful, and Drexel Dining staff exemplify the bad cafeteria lunch person who could actually make you feel terrible. The students are average, having kind of working hard in high school.

Overall Experience: I love my school! It's just really hard when you are paying tuition on your own and go to a very expensive school. Should have more help with tuition assistance from school.

Overall Experience: Drexel is a different school compared to most other colleges. Drexel is quick paced and that pushes me as a student to pursue my degree. There are an extraordinary amount of clubs and organizations that are available to students to help them express what they love.

Overall Experience: I love the school, including the teachers, the students, the buildings, the extracurriculars. I love the location and how it's in the city. The only thing I dislike about it is the expenses. It is very expensive, like a lot of colleges, but it seems quite excessive.

Overall Experience: Very hard work while enrolled and because you go year round it can be draining, but you can't beat the co-op experience.

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: Drexel in general was a mistake. I am transferring to a new school (Sarah Lawrence College) and am very excited for that

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The big draw for me to attend Drexel was the co op program. I feel that leaving college with 18 months of actual work experience is a big draw for my resume'.

Overall Experience: School is not unique or diverse enough. Every opportunity Drexel has to take money from their students, they take it. As a student, you are also not challenged in certain majors, but still stressed by the quick course dates. Not enough campus involvement either

Overall Experience: Drexel University, like most colleges and universities, is a business. Post secondary Education has become a very competitive for serving the global market. Drexel has made incredible strides in becoming the strong Penn "alternative." It is definitely the responsibility of the student to remain active and determined during the college experience. Drexel does try to stay connected with supporting its student body.

Overall Experience: Drexel values each students education and well being. They want each of their students to succeed and do the best, not only in the program that they are enrolled in, but in their careers too. The school provides many opportunities early on, as early as freshman year, to get students to make connections with professionals in their fields for their co op opportunities. Each student is uniquely valued and has a place at Drexel.

Overall Experience: I have had one of the worst experiences at this school. When you need help, you can barely get it. It's expensive and the financial aid is absolutely no help which is why I'm struggling at the moment to continue my education.

Overall Experience: Okay school, just gotta find your own small community within.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Drexel is alright... To say the most. The curriculum is very challenging and you will often find youself trying to catch up. Athletics is non existent, so dont go to this school if you are a sports person. Its also very expensive so keep that in mind. However, the parties around drexel amazing ( Drexel doesn't throw any good parties). This place surrounds three very good universities so there is a lot to do at Drexel. Ive also met alot of cool people there. Overall, Drexel isnt bad but shouldnt be ur to choice

Overall Experience: Drexel forces you to work at industry pace being that school is run on 10 week terms. My professors have all been awesome, and I've learned so much in such short quarters. Also, I love that the city is my campus; it makes life feel more real.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Some students complain about the "Drexel Shaft" screwing up their scheduling or billing, or a poor professor. The truth is that students will find red tape headaches and unfortunate instructors at just about every university. As long as students are picky about the professors and classes they enroll in, they can surely guarantee a positive academic experience. The University is filled with incredible professors that are more than willing to impart their professional wisdom. The Drexel Co-op is Drexel's strongest selling point, and many students come here specifically for that program. Some can't wait to graduate and zip through their classes, concentrating more on their co-op, as they feel it gives them more valuable experience. This vocational approach of the student works against the joy of the college learning experience. Some students scoff at the idea of taking electives in other academic concentrations, which they might enjoy or which could make them a more well-rounded person.

The hurry to graduate is mostly because of the fact that co-ops usually require students to stay at Drexel for five years. Students load up on courses when they are in school, try just to pass them, and complete their programs as soon as possible. This does not need to be the case, and the students that realize this earlier on tend to be immensely happier than the aforementioned students. It's unfortunate that this facet of students at Drexel feels this rush, but most of the other students relish their college experience and the various benefits Drexel has to offer. Most students are thrilled they went to Drexel in the end. The co-op is an invaluable experience that puts students ahead in the job race after graduation (it also beats any menial college job).
