5 College Freshman

Diversity: School does not lack for racial and ethnic diversity

4 College Freshman

Academics: Really easy to register for courses,but they usually fill up quickly

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We are right in the middle of the city of Philadelphia, there is always an urgency to stay as safe as possible, especially when walking to and from campus in the middle of the night. But all students are aware of that, and I don't think I've heard or read anything about a Drexel student being a victim.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are always nice and understanding, courses are rigorous but are worth it, they challenge you

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School is really strong on academics and work experience through co-op, so it is really important to me that I obtain a degree and graduate through drexel, and that by the time I graduate I already have a job through co-op.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great residence halls, and apartments as well. Better value if living in an apartment outside residence halls after sophomore year

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Great part of the community, not part of Greek life, but most of them seem cool enough.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity teams are good, but not competitive enough for you to go out every week and cheer them on. Rec center and athletic facilities are on point and look new though.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are great, but cost of attendance is supremely expensive

4 College Junior

Academics: There is a compassionate and genuine desire to succeed and see other students succeed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the accessibility to my professors and classmates in my online courses

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus safety is very prevalent, as is Philadelphia PD.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My professors and classmates take education and learning seriously and it is a good environment to learn new things.

3 College Junior

Athletics: This is not a topic I feel too comfortable reviewing because I don't participate in athletics, neither as an athlete not as a spectator.

3 College Student

Athletics: Haven't taken full advantage of the athletic centers on campus yet but I feel confident that they are very good places to get an exercise.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I recently joined Sigma Sigma Sigma and its okay right now. I'm not hyped about it nor do I feel like I fit in.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really participate in any sports.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A lot of bike police driving around but they are no real help. I think its pretty safe other than the few robberies.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I hate the Cells and Genetics course with Kabnick.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The co-op program is nice here I guess. Didn't have the chance to do it yet so we will see

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Tower's hall is nasty but the people are cool so it makes it a bit better. Without them my experience their would be terrible

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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).
