Scholarships: Could They Be Anymore Difficult – Drexel is constantly screwing things up, I can't believe how bad they are when it comes to financial aid.

Weather: Four Seasons – Pennsylvania is a beautiful weather state if you enjoy all four seasons

Overall Experience: Doctorate Program Not What I Expected – Most DNP programs I would have graduated from 3 years ago, but Drexel does a DrNP program that requires a full dissertation. Which is great if the professors didn't keep leaving or if they better understood what the students were to do to get out. No two classes have been the same - they just keep changing things, and many from my class feel forgotten. Oh well, here's to possibly getting done in the next year or two.

Academics: Excellent Academic Program – There is a little bit of everything for everyone. The school offers a number of different academic programs fit for each individual student to tailor to their needs. Certain majors offer a 5-year BS/MS program in which the student can achieve a Masters Degree in the course of 5 years. The highlight of Drexel is the Co-Op Program which offers paid real world work experience while in school. This not only provides the student the opportunity to become familiar within their field and gain experience but it builds relationships and networks with potential employers. And by doing so it increases the likelihood of obtaining a stable job after graduation.. It is an excellent work study opportunity and to build a resume.

Athletics: More of an Academic Then an Athletic School – Drexel University has a rigorous academic program, so athletics are not necessarily number one on each students' list of priorities. Sports are not scarce, however is it not a top ranked, varsity sports school. There are a number of team sports, intramural and extracurricular sports available. As well as a new state of the art recreation center, built in 2010.

4 College Student

Academics: Always Someone to Help! The fast-paced environment is supported by a number of student resources readily available. In addition to books, iPads, laptops and other electronics are available to checkout. Study groups and peer tutoring are offered in any given subject area at the Learning Terrace.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors steal your money – I had several occasions where professors missed almost half of the classes scheduled for a course. Most of the students here are looking to their co-ops and aren't all that interested in the education that they are paying for.

4 College Student

Majors: While here, Drexel gives much opportunity for students to actually work in their field of study. The Co-op program actually gives you experience and also tells you whether or not you love or hate your major. It is very helpful to know before you graduate, whether or not you'll like the jobs you are studying for. Drexel is also near UPenn which is a top medical school.

4 College Student

Majors: Not Bad at All – I actually had no difficulties applying to Drexel. The most important criteria are probably grades and test scores which you probably already know. However, it depends on your major whether of not these scores matter. There is no abnormal application process but it is a rolling application.

4 College Student

Academics: Difficult but Rewarding. The classes are difficult and the work is not always easy but it is very rewarding and the professors are there to help and they want you to pass and become successful.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Many Options – The best choice would have to be the Drexel shuttles because they are free and some of them go into the city and others go into other parts of the city. The next choice I would say would have to be the subway it costs around three dollars for a round trip to use the subway and they can take you anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There are many things to do on Drexel's Campus including things planned by Drexel to things you can do in the city. Since the city is so close there will always be something to do.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Food Trucks – The food trucks are the best places to get great quality food. Most of them are authentic, and they taste so good. I sorry I feel bad for you if you have a meal plan because you will be forced to eat Drexel's food. The dining dollars are terrible and they do not roll over. BEWARE!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: First term is gonna f*** you up! Please, please try not to party too hard and don't do last minute assignments because yo GPA will reflex that. You need to make a schedule and

Off-Campus Dining: Drexel sucks if you commute too far campus. Trust me it is best to find a apartment near the campus because you will be more than likely to miss out on most of the events.

4 College Student

Weather: Its Philly – its hot half the year then cold, im used to the weather but thats not why we are here

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Its Ok – im in myers which is a little old but its the biggest dorm room on campus, they are pretty good for a city school, millenium has the nicest dorms but also the smallest, they also have other issues

4 College Student

Campus Food: Pretty Good and Lots of Options – the foods good and at first there are lots of options but it gets repetative

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process Is Slow – Financial aid process is tedious and sometimes, extra documents are required. A representative on the phone is usually of no help but visiting the Drexel human resources center can be helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Its a Pleasure! Psychology at Drexel is invigorating and so interesting. There are many different, unique courses that teach about psychology in areas such as developmental, social, industrial, child psychopathology, and much more. The classes are not impossible nor are they very hard. You just need to study and put forth extra time for good grades. The professors are experienced and have quite a lot of knowledge in their specific areas.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: This program requires no extra application process or criteria. Once a person declares to major in psychology, he or she needs to simply apply and enroll into psychology courses that are a requirement for graduation.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Drexel campus is small, you will never need any other type of transportation on campus, unless you are moving for one campus to another, in which case the shuttle is available is also free for students.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: Almost Superb – Drexel is an engineering school, and so the one thing you can expect to get is top notch technology. The only issue you could run into is the problem with the wifi, it is usually cramped, and you may find yourself in a struggle for connection. But the Ethernet connection makes up for that. The computer labs are well equipped with MacBooks and PCs and so it's basically a matter of choice. The best placeto print is in the library, unless you're honor's in which case you get to print for free in the honor's lounge.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not That Much Hype – Sports are hyped at Drexel,there isn't that much to it though especially because the biggest sport we have is basketball because we don't have a football team. The tennis team is also pretty good,and they get decent hype too.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Somewhat Diverse – Because this school is in a city, there is a lot of naturally occurring diversity from both the neighborhood and student body.

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).
