5 College Junior

Academics: There are a lot of great programs offered.

5 College Junior

Majors: I really enjoy the program, I'm learning a lot.

5 College Junior

Majors: Drexel focuses on coops to promote student engagement in real life jobs. This is great to help prepare students for the real world and to help us know we are in the right majors or possibly just the right area of our major.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Being in a large city, it is good to see that safety is a top priority. There is frequently campus police visible, especially after dark. Even though there are often a lot of crimes committed in the city, I feel relatively safe on campus.

3 College Junior

Technology: The computers are fairly average on campus. They accomplish the needs of students who don't bring their laptops.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Drexel has a strict alcohol and drug use policy

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Obtaining off campus housing is somewhat a hassle

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Philadelphia is amazing bubbling with historical museums and attraction. However it may not be the most safest but the locals are usually helpful if you approach the right person. You have a bunch of places to shop and there are a lot of activities going around. Transportation out of downtown might be a problem and the subways could use some improvement but they too are pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Cars are usually not required as the campus is well connected. However if you need to get to Walmart which is out of town, then it is a bit of a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The only con about Drexel is it's Meal Plan. It's costly for the kind of food that we get, but at times when it is thanksgiving or Halloween the food is really good. There are no late night options in the dining center however the North-side hall has some decent variety of food available that are usually not covered much in the meal plan.

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).
