3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's cash only for most places, which can get annoying. Lots of variety, but hardly any student discounts. Plenty of food trucks on campus during the day. At night...

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They constantly lose information, and don't tell you things until they're close to the deadline. For what you're paying, it should be more organized.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If it's close to campus, it's either in a bad spot and a run down place, or unreasonably expensive. So people take the farther distance.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Our Recreation center is new and great. The library is terrible. Not enough seating and bad wifi. No one cares about campus traditions.

Campus Quality: We have co-op. You can take 5 years to get your bachelor's and also have 18 months of work experience, if you're into that.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: People think it's interesting that I'm a Psych major. The workload is really big, it's a lot of reading and papers. Facilities aren't that great, they put us anywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors I met are all actually very nice and inviting. Registration is online, and very easy. The curriculum is average, and the workload is huge. Study areas are nonexistent.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't inviting, amenities are nonexistent, social atmosphere is apathetic, the cost is way overpriced, and it's as far from any of the class buildings as it gets.

Administration: They have a no-tolerance rule for drugs, but are much more lenient with alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A lot of diversity, more men than women, and always a chance to meet someone new

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a pretty good scholarship upon becoming accepted but had a lot of problems with the financial aid office processing my Fafsa's which was tedious, time consuming, and frustrating.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a large amount of diversity across campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school send out information via email about college sorts often. Not everyone opens it, but once in a while people eventually do. The teams are all over the campus and they are usually dressed in uniform or wearing something that says Drexel and their sport. I see rowing the most. I do not see much of fan support except for the friends of the teammates. I am a commuter and if I live on campus in Fall 2014 I'd like to get involved and go to the sports. Especially the rowing on the river.

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).
