3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Convenient locations and reasonably affordable

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Being located in the city there is a diverse availability of nightlife to students whether it be a party or the bar. There is good transportation with buses, cabs, or even just walking.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is definitely a melting pot of people from different backgrounds, different races/religions, and political beliefs. People are very accepting and even when opinions/beliefs differ still treat each other with respect.

Campus Housing: The dorm room Freshman year was like animal kingdom: Mice & roaches!!! This year the accomodations are cramped but much better.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not been pressured by my room mates or classmates to partake of banned substances. Nor do I have time or finances to get hammered. Some of the guys get sloppy drunk and that's not cool.

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).
