4 College Senior

Majors: I would do my program all over again if I had the chance.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in campus housing since I was a freshman and I don't regret it.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It could improve but the effort is definitely there.

4 College Senior

Administration: My campus is strict without smothering the students.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I think that access to drugs is a bit easier and that drugs are an issue on most college campuses. Drexel is close to lots of other Universities that have issues with drugs as well. I wouldn't say that it is very visible or that there is a lot of peer pressure, just that there is a presence at parties and everyone knows at least one person who could point you to a someone who deals.

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).
