Overall Experience: I personally loved my experience at Drexel. Yes co-op and not having a summer is tough but overall I am very pleased with everything I learned and gained from my Drexel experience.

Athletics: Drexel offers multiple athletic opportunities to students. The fan support and school spirit could be better, but it is difficult when the school doesn't have a football team and our big team sports like basketball don't have the best ranking.

Overall Experience: Courses were nice if the professor was good. It all depended on the professor

Overall Experience: You really needed to seek help and faculty to have a chance at getting a job.

Health & Safety: i am glad that public safety is available and that you can always rely on someone to walk you home. However, it is rarely used because it takes too long.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing was nice but expensive. I am glad I moved off campus to save money/

Greek Life: Greek life is available if you want to be a part of it but not necessary. I don't think there is any Greek snobbiness or such; just another way for people to be involved if they want.

Overall Experience: Drexel is nice in the sense that it is in the city and allows you to take advantage of all the city has to offer. However, classes could be better;

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. I have never felt unsafe while on campus. The only times I have ever felt unsafe while attending Drexel has been while off campus. Public safety officers are always in sight.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have liked all of the courses i have taken so far except Economics. My teacher was an awful teacher, and I'm not just saying that because of a bad grade, because I performed well in the class. Besides that class, my experience at Drexel has been awesome.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel that if you graduate from Drexel, you automatically get a job. The Co-op experience and alumni network is very powerful. It almost guarantees a job after graduation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorm I live in, Van R, and the people I live with. The social atmosphere is awesome and the ease of housing experience was fairly easy.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life seems to be the go-to party scene for non-athletes. I do not know enough about Greek life to comment any more.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am on a varsity sport here at Drexel, and so far I love it. The facilities are very nice and the school spirit is awesome. Besides our Men's basketball team, it seems that all the teams are fairly successful and get along very well.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, my experience at Drexel has been pretty good. Most of my teachers so far have been very good and helpful, and I usually like all of my classmates. The only complaint that I have is the 100 week semesters. It is very challenging, but definitely doable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Drexel is meant for kids that live on campus from day one. If that is not who you are, you will not truly feel a connection to the school.

Overall Experience: Drexel does a good job with the co-op system, which in turn gets you properly prepared for a job after college, and your resume reflects that.

Greek Life: I don't really have an opinion on it. I am not part of a sorority or fraternity. I do no attend their parties.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is not the most welcoming. It is heavy on engineering, and as a non-engineering student I feel a bit pushed out. I am applying to transfer. The price tag is not worth the education.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm a freshman here and overall Drexel surprised me. I knew I would be happy here but I did not think I would be this happy. I'm happy with my social life and academics. I've joined clubs and extra circulars and It was an easy process to get involved. If I feel like I'm struggling my advisor is helpful, and my courses are interesting and not too hard to manage so far. It is true that people get "shafted" but I think the overall experience is worth that happening occasionally. The only thing I wish was better was the food. But housing, and everything else is great.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Typical crime, mugging, etc every other day

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are nice, some of the rooms can be improved

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety walks around, the police are right by the dorms, it's not bad.

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).
