Weather: Coming from the greater Philadelphia area, it's what I'm used to. Some students are surprised by the cold, but it is definitely something you can acclimate to. There isn't usually too much precipitation, and it does get somewhat hot in the summers.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is a very common topic, and many students start drinking in their freshman year. I didn't drink (more than once or twice) before I was of legal age. I had a great time even without alcohol.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of pizza places, chinese places, and others. There are trucks offering halal food, Philly food, different fusions, and all kinds of things. Restaurants in the area are extremely diverse as well.

Health & Safety: Drexel campus police are ever present. Even walking to my off campus apartment I usually pass at least one, sometimes two at night. I always feel safe on campus, and I even tell prospective students about how fantastic the police are here.

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).
