2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on Drexel's campus - I live very close to campus and there is a large presence of campus security and Drexel Police who was more than happy to escort you home late night.

1 College Junior

Parking: The cost of on-campus parking is crazy high and the locations aren't even that great.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are many different races but I don't know what is the majority or minority political belief

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is always something to do since you are right in the city. It really opens up when you turn 21 since bars and other places like that but there is usually always something going on every month. Just have to be cautious since some area can get pretty ugly.

Majors: Drexel puts a lot money into the larger majors like engineering and business. They could care less about any of the other majors. As an environmental studies major I was supposed to get a BS in Environmental Studies but I was really getting a BS in Brown Nosing.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not everyone goes out but those that do make up for them!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: My school's co-op program has provided me the opportunity to gain work experience during a 6 month internship. It gives you the opportunity to see if you enjoy your major.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Drexel's campus is very open. There are many different places to go to inside of Center City by taking the subway or the bus. There are unique organizations to join as well as sororities and frats, that are very fun. Going around campus and joining organizations is a great way to meet new friends

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Drexel has several options for off-campus housing. The cost is around $400-$700 per month. The problem is that there isn't much parking on the side of the apartments.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the houses are dilapidated, and still charge a lot for rent. The good-priced, nicer places to live are mostly in the ghetto. The actually nice places to live are way above a student's means in terms of rent. You have to hunt for diamonds in the rough.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There are always things to do, and Drexel is extremely close to the city- if you don't like the activities on campus, you can always find somewhere new to go/something new to do.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is never a shortage of places to eat- but a lot of places aren't open very late.

Campus Housing: There are plenty of dorms, with new ones being built constantly. The old ones are, well, old, and not in the best condition.

Scholarships: I really hope i get some kind of financial aid or scholarships

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The university got all kind of guys and girls, from studious and very serious to party people and outgoing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: School offers excellent programs for students in technology/engineering fields. (I'm not quite familiar with others but I'm sure they are no less than excellent). Advisers and professors work with you for any concerns or questions which is awesome. While concentration on studies, you can still keep yourself updated with Drexel's upcoming events alerts. The co-op programs gives real life experience make actually make it worth attending the college.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather sucks, it is ALWAYS windy for some reason.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It is nice. YOu get your interviews and eventually get a job. Everyone gets a job. You usually do not get paid, and the job is usually full time. It is a normal full time job.

3 College Freshman

Majors: There were barely any problems getting into my program.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The education at Drexel is good. It is very fast paced and can fall behind very quickly.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Nursing is tough but great career, but really expensive and unaffordable.

3 College Junior

Technology: I receive free printing for being in the Honors College. This is awesome. There are also computer labs that are for specific majors only which is nice.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I joined a fraternity, if i hadn't, I would have transferred out a long time ago.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of Pizza places on campus. If you really want variety, you have to go to Penn. That's really not that big of a deal though. Drexel is currently vamping up the dining options.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: I can almost always find parking where I live. If you go on the later side, parking on campus is pretty easy to find. When in doubt drive to Powelton and there are tons of parking spots.

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).
