Health & Safety: Between the Philly police, Drexel's police, Penn's police, and UCity's police, as well as Public Safety, the campus is extremely secure. Just tread carefully further west and north.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It really depends on what you value. I can look past the dining and housing. The education is satisfactory, the social experience is great, and the food trucks are also good. Most classes are large lectures(200+), then smaller labs and recitations. The professors are usually very good, yet the TAs I was assigned were less helpful than my peers. The TA for my CHEM101 recitation seemed to think we were in kindergarten still. He was no help.

Overall Experience: Co-op, co-op, co-op. We have career fairs and speakers all the time, we also have the top co-op program I have ever heard of. With the possibility of 3 co-ops, it gives you an edge for work experience over nearly everyone else.

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).
