Greek Life: Greek life isn't that prominent on campus, they don't have any real impact on the social or party scene.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's an amazing experience to go to school in the city. Drexel provides many opportunities for you to explore not only Philadelphia, but the world. One of the best features to Drexel is Co-ops. The fact that you actually get a job in your field. I love that I get to figure out exactly what I want to do with my career before I am 100 percent committed to it. Our motto is to be different, which is the best thing you could ever be.

Health & Safety: The general area around the school seems fine. However, you will be notified of robberies at gunpoint around campus on a bi-monthly basis.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Big variance here. Class size is normally pretty good, but sometimes you will have a teacher that's nothing more than a recent graduate, who doesn't know too much more than the students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Almost all of the co-ops are located around Philadelphia.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depends on which dorm you're put in. The Freshmen dorms are significantly better than the Upperclassmen ones.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not much to say here. Could be much worse -- though I hear some of the fraternities have a bad reputation with women.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Never really paid attention to varsity sports.

The gym is one of the silver linings -- it's new, and generally has good equipment, though it is often crowded. The climbing wall is a great addition of the gym.

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).
