4 College Student

Scholarships: Drexel is very generous with scholarships, for the most part a lot of students receive some.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It's more expensive than on-campus housing and definitely not worth the value

4 College Student

Administration: They respect the drinking norms even if it's underage, they don't bust you for it, they do however take drugs very seriously and students get expelled on the spots if caught with any drugs. They're very strict about bringing alcohol and drugs into dorms as well, it is strictly disallowed.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I stay in towers, and the social atmosphere is great, you meet a lot of people on your floor and in your building. The freshman dorms are all around the same general area so it's convinient to get around. Receiving mails in the dorms is a huge issue, there are specific hours that you can go to claim your packages, RDC (residential desk coordinators) aren't very helpful if you haven't received a package. I recently ordered a clicker for one of my classes which was delivered Friday and I am yet to receive it (I don't even have confirmation that it arrived), when I asked an RDC about it, she said I'll have to wait until she arranges small packages and places them into the mailboxes. It's been 5 days, and when I asked her again she said and I quote "it'll happen when it does", I asked if I could be notified, and she said no.

Health & Safety: There are a lot of campus security guards around campus. As for health, the wait at the health centre is the absolute worst, doesn't move for hours sometimes, it's a terrible system.

3 College Student

Athletics: I joined club sports, and varsity athletics submitted their schedule after club sports did. However, priority goes to varsity sports which causes an inconvenience on club sports athletes and our schedules.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Yes i got a scholarship but it was not an easy experience, and i still need more funding for my tuition if others can get full tuition fees so can i. I just dont know how. i hope somebody reads this and helps. Thank you.

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly i do cook for myself but from my friend view the cost is affordable in terms of convenience they are everywhere mostly there are no student discounts some do have some dont and i can generally say there are variety of places a student can dine in off campus

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I dont know anything about greek life in school

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a business student majoring in accounting and i love my course and its because i love calculations and am pretty much good at it. The workload is high but i cant complain because i enjoy studying facilities for my course are available both in the library and on online facilities. The job prospects are brighter because of the coop program offered to business students that enable the to experience the global field and gives them the opportunity to network for future job placement

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I havent had an internship yet but i would want to have one so as to gain experience in my field of study. With the help of the college i will be able to find a good internship program

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the small class size is great personalized attention is given to each student, the quality of courses is good, the professors are well versed with the course content, class style are much comfortable

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are great and knowledgeable on course content, the curriculum is great and one the easiet thing to do is the registration process because all freshmen get the help of an academic advisor with the registration process, workload, quizzes, assignments are too many but then thats why we go to school so i am not complaing

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: most students are pretty much involved in sports, generally team performance is good but not all the teams are at per as others are better off winning most of their games, the fun support is the best team spirit show oneness like that of one family. Facilities are state of the art

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: off campus housing is great experience because it give you much responsibility, generally its easy to find rental houses but at times the landlords are a bit harsh and too demanding on house rents. most rental houses are a bit far from school but still it is a walking distance. cons is that the library is not near neither is the recreational facility. Parking is pretty much good with lots of available parking lots. I would definitely need financial support in terms of tuition fees. I do live off campus myself

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like the dorm rooms most especially because they are very spacious. i like the fact that we are not crowded two per room. I love the level of privacy and security accorded to the students because to access the buildings you have to swipe your student card or if you brought visitors you have to write their names down which i believe is great. I love the meal plans a wide variety of food to eat and you actually eat whatever you want meal time ranges is also superb. The dorm proximty to my class is near so i dont get late for my classes

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home. I don't know much about the on-campus or off-campus housing.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They don't seem to help much it is very difficult to pay for such an expensive school.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my major. It's a lot of work but I couldn't see myself doing anything else.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I love going to games and supporting my school. It is a nice feeling to see everyone come together against another school.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Because our school is in the center of the city, there are a wide range of off campus dining. lately, the school has taken it upon itself to open new local places for students to eat. It is very convenient to have this variety at such proximity. Some offer student discount.

4 College Junior

Academics: This is a great school that offers a large variety of programs. the list is endless and permits them to have a wide number of students. Professors are great and always available to help in person, by email and by phone. The workload is a bit much because of the trimester system. Things that regular schools learn over the course of a semester, we learn over a trimester.

Campus Housing: i have not lived on campus, I commute therefore I wouldn't be able to comment on this subject but many of my friends love being minutes away from classes and being able to wake up at anytime.

5 College Junior

Majors: Part of the best things about Drexel are the Co-op which are REQUIRED internships before graduation. I've had 2 internships with two great companies and I am currently hired as a part time at my previous one. This is great because by the time I graduate, I would have a load of experience from the real world which will facilitate my job search. It is not hard to find these jobs because the school has made it possible by creating a website where companies post positions and based on many criteria, they pick their best candidates.

5 College Junior

Majors: It is difficult to get into my major. Many females do not pick engineering as their major. Women are down-viewed by society. We are thought of as incapable of accomplishing what men can. But to be honest, as long as you have a great academic standard, you have chances of getting into the program regardless of your gender.

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).
