4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It is perfect for the new student just leaving off campus housing.

3 College Student

Administration: Visitation in the dorms is very strict and really ensures feeling of security among those who live in the dorm.

4 College Student

Academics: The Engineering program is varied, with many choices of a discipline to pursue. This school is a Co Op school, which was a main attraction to attend.

Campus Food: The Hans has good choices, but its a long walk from my dorm to the dining center.

3 College Student

Greek Life: The Greek houses are not really run down, they are just old homes in the same area as campus.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: There are mobile security (walking, bikes, cars) patrolling all the time, and there are blue light emergency phones within sight of each other, all throughout campus.

4 College Student

Scholarships: We had to appeal to request additional financial aid, and they did respond with another $5,000 Drexel scholarship.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Since being an older student in an intensive accelerated program, I do not have the time to stray from my studies.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Pros - the freedom, price, space, noise level and accessibility to campus is still great living off campus.

Cons- watch your back if you live too far fr campus because certain neighborhoods are questionnable.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: This a program called drexel guardian that helps keep students safe. It's an app and security guards will come and walk you to certain places if you do not feel safe.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Just like any other school dealing with post bachelorette degree students. The government will not give us much

So we turned to large personal loans.

5 College Junior

Majors: Currently I work full time as a phlebotomist in NYC. There are no real internships in healthcare, unless you volunteer.

I rectu just volunteered at Morgan Stabley children's pediatric ICU at NYP-Columbia for 6months. That was an amazing experience.

Athletics: Again I am an older student in the intensive 11-month bachelors program so I wish I had more time to watch the sports teams. Our facilities are stunning though.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but I could imagine the noise level.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not in tuned with the Greek life at drexel because

I am too old for that and have a husband at home.

3 College Junior

Administration: I'm sure the way operations decided to make certain rules more strict and other lenient had good reason behind it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Even though the surroundings are not the safest, the campus is pretty safe.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is too harsh on some things, and too lenient on others. I would prefer more strictness with noise, especially at night.

Local Area: Philadelphia is a great city, I haven't explored all of it yet, but I plan to.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is pretty good, but extremely expensive, also, it's required for two whole years, which is a little much.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied through the common app, which was tedious but pretty straight forward. I got a decent amount of financial aid, considering the cost of attendance.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am in the graphic design program. We get a lot of work, specifically in design class, but I think it is all very necessary and useful. The curriculum is well-rounded. The facilities are very good--there is a huge computer lab with printers. There are plenty of work-study opportunities available.

Party Scene: I dont really know. I've never been to a party nor plan on ever going to one.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If the financial aid with this school wasn't giving me such a hard time, I'd be more content.

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).
