4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's extremely expensive but the education is well worth it, especially if you make it your money's worth

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally do not pay much attention to the athletics at our school. I have been to a few sporting events, which I enjoyed and they were all very fun. I find the athletic facilities to be extremely nice for all students.

Overall Experience: Drexel is the perfect fit for me. I love everything from the location and the volunteer opportunities to the unique dance/movement therapy program that I am currently in. The faculty and student body create a great environment.

Health & Safety: Crime happens, we're in Philadelphia, but Drexel has an alert system that notifies all students when a crime happens/where it is. Drexel public safety also offers walking escorts to/from anywhere on and around campus so that you never have to walk alone if you aren't comfortable doing so.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a large variety of classes that you can take here at Drexel and endless things to learn about. Class sizes are average--unless it's a huge lecture you definitely have an opportunity to get to know your professor on a first name basis. Professors have been great so far.

Overall Experience: With the co-op program at Drexel, graduates have a foot in the door and are a few steps ahead of students with degrees from schools that lack the co-op program. With the opportunity to graduate having completed three different six month full-time internships, the likelihood of landing a good full time job right out of school is high.

Campus Housing: While I liked living on campus freshman year, it is too expensive to continue living on campus after it's required.

Greek Life: I am part of Greek life here and it was one of the best decisions of my life! My chapter has brought me so many opportunities and people that I never would have met if I didn't join.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: While Drexel has a great division 1 athletics program with amazing facilities such as a huge recreation center, turf field, and more, Drexel students have almost no school spirit and almost no one goes to any sports games. (Without a football team, no one really cares about sports here...)

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Drexel because the location is amazing and I love all of the opportunities it holds for me. I would not change schools if I could do it all over again because I am definitely in the right place.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus and that is a big deal in west Philly!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Drexel is a school for oppurtunity and at least one of your prefessors has proabbaly been a huge sucess in your major and can help you find conections in the field.

Overall Experience: Most professors are very helpful if they see you are trying your best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If you do not live in Millenium or Race, then you probably have mice or a dirty dorm.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Drexel's new president made many rules and is very stirct on greek life and that has really killed the parties you would expect greek life to have. You can join, it is a good way to make friends, but it is not a big thing. Expensive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The option to go to athletic events is there, but a lot of studetns do not partcipate if it is not a big game.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Drexel is different. I love my program and I have grown so much because of the ten week terms and my porfessors. It is more of a career school than your typical college experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We are ranked #4 in the entire country for saftey. I always feel safe here on campus, and I love the Drexel Public Saftey text message alerts we recieve, if/ when anything is wrong.

Overall Experience: Chem 101 has been a challenge for me. I also thin that the head of the spring chem 101 section should retire. He doens't help students gain a better understanding on what they need in order to do well in his course

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The CO-OP program is a huge part of why students choose Drexel, it was a huge reason as to why I chose Drexel. I like that I will be able to test the waters of my profession before I actually graduate college.

Campus Housing: I like living on campus. I live in a hall that has learning communities, so everyone in my building is very driven to their work. You have to apply and be accepted into the learning community so that shows the level of commtment each student in my hall has.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really interested in Greek life, but a lot of my friends are involved. Greek life is only about 12% of our school's population.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I take advantage of our state of the art gym as well has the free student lead work out classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many ways for studnets to be enaged on campus, that can be through academics as well as thorough extracurriculars. Even though we are a large university, Drexel makes it a point for there to be a good student to teacher ratios, which is very important to me as a students since I graduated from a small private school.

Party Scene: When there are parties its good. Drexel is really strict and doesn't enjoy there students having fun. Every other school is better, if you're coming just for parties don't.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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).
