4 College Junior

Majors: The nursing program is very competitive and it is extremely hard at times. It will be worth it in the end and the co-op program really sets up up for a promising future once you graduate. I enjoy the professors they are very good and I like most of my colleagues that I have a majority of my classes with. The opportunities within Philadelphia and Drexel are great and I am very lucky to be in a great school in a great city.

Majors: I have yet to experience the co-op program but from what I have heard from students and people who have looked into the Drexel co-op program it is very successful. The co-op program consists of the student working full time in an environment similar to what they may want to do after graduation and it sets them up for what they could be doing for the rest of their professional careers.

Administration: I have not experienced much of anything concerning campus strictness. I am a student that lives off campus and I have never lived on campus since I have attended Drexel. The security guards patrol around campus and even a little past campus to make sure students that do live off campus are still protected and that is a bonus.

Overall Experience: The work load is overbearing at times but the city and the environment makes up for all of the added stress. There is plenty of things to get your mind off of your studies and I definitely need that. Drexel has the co-op program and that sets you up for your future after you graduate very well as long as you take advantage of the opportunity and build professional relationships with the professors and people you get to know throughout the co-op experience.

Athletics: There are a lot of options and a lot of club teams that recruit frequently and efficiently throughout the school year. The school spirit is great and all of the varsity events are well displayed throughout campus allowing for students to be aware and come out to show their teams support. The facilities have great work study positions and they have accessible equipment and it is all in good shape.

Parking: I don't have a car but theres enough free parking to not get too frustrated.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms aren't worth the price we pay to live in them.

3 College Senior

Weather: Spring, and fall is great. Cold winters.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Individual research has to be done about off-campus housing thats near the campus. There are a couple places that Drexel advertises but not usually helpful.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The few places we do have around campus are actually really good. I wish there was more of a variety though.

4 College Senior

Transportation: I think Drexel provides great, free transportation around the city.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I think there could be more safety regarding drug use. But I also think its impossible to prevent drug use with college students.

4 College Senior

Administration: I think the campus is pretty safe.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I think that the cost of attendance for Drexel University is really high and almost impossible to leave without high loans.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There aren't a lot of bars on campus and the one that is on campus, everyone goes to. The nightlife is okay.

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).
