Drug Safety: Never seen a problem. Pretty laid-back. People have fun.

Academics: Fashion student here-

Proximity to New York is a big plus.

Workload- We don't get to have a life for 3 years!

The program is based on practical knowledge and the skillset gained at the end makes the students better than Parson's or any other school.

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast food but once off campus theres tons of great places to eat around the city.

Athletics: Its alright I don't play sports or anything

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Aid is available but it will barely make a dent in Drexel's total cost of tuition, outside scholarships and loans are a MUST if you can't afford it out of pocket.

Athletics: Having been very involved in athletics throughout high school and college I was disappointed by the opportunities to participate here. Since it is graduate school there is less time but I wish there were more chances to get involved.

Health & Safety: I feel safe "on campus" referring to being within the Hahnemann building. I do not feel very safe if I have to stay there past dark since the area isn't the greatest where the hospital is located.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It was a large adjustment moving to a big city but after awhile it has grown on me and I am beginning to appreciate the opportunities that have been offered by Philadelphia as well as Drexel. I would definitely choose this school again although there are some complaints I have regarding the school and its administration.

Local Area: Living in the heart of Philadelphia offers endless opportunities socially and academically. Whatever I am interested in doing there is something of that flavor and there is no reason to ever be bored here.

4 College Senior

Administration: Since I live off campus I do not experience the limitations offered by the dorms. In general, though, the campus security at Hahnemann is very friendly.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Many students are of a minority and I have never experienced an altercation that was racially or ethnically driven. Everyone in the student body is extremely respectful and accepting of one another.

Off-Campus Dining: The city offers an endless number of restaurants and eating options. Although it is definitely more expensive to eat out than grocery shop, it is a nice escape.

2 College Senior

Technology: Not only do we have to pay for printing but when we want to study in the Hahnemann library it is likely that the internet will not work. Extremely frustrating.

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).
