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

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.

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.

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).
