Campus Housing: Expensive for what it is. Nothing special.

Off-Campus Housing: Any housing that's not Drexel's housing is better simply because of price. They'll charge $800 per month to share a bedroom with one other person, when I can spend $350 off campus to have a room of my own with the freedom that I want.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Drexel has a monopoly on the housing in the area. The cost to stay in a dorm is averages to about 1100 per month, which is absolutely insane. There are apartments that are even bigger than the housing they provide that only charge $350 per month.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The five closest restaurants to campus all have the same foods. Pizza, and wings. Variety is terrible, on and off campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Engineering and l love it!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: No tolerance policy if found with drugs. New alcohol policy is making partying harder - not sure how that is going to work in the coming school year when it goes into effect. As long as you aren't publicly a drunken mess, you shouldn't have an issue. Cops are good about breaking up parties and giving everyone 5 minutes to leave.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are pretty stereotypical but have many style options. Dorm, suite, hybrid, etc. Upperclassmen housing is spacious, though expensive and you still have to share a bedroom. It's a pretty steep cost, but the safety and proximity to campus makes it a little more worth it.

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).
