Drexel's diversity plays a strong role in the college experience, making its students more worldly through their exposure to people of all backgrounds, including international students. This valuable exposure and interaction comes about in the classroom and in extracurricular activities, especially those related to community service, which are very popular at Drexel. The professors are diverse, as well, which certainly helps this cause.
Although Drexel students do get a lot of insight into other cultures in class and on campus, it is disappointing to see that many Drexel students, like most normal college students, usually limit their social groups to those of similar backgrounds. However, it is not that uncommon to see an interracial couple or a small group of friends that is ethnically diverse. Frat parties, on the other hand, are usually more racially/ethnically common. While Drexel has a diverse student body with respect to race and ethnicity, it is not very socioeconomically diverse. Unfortunately, the sky-high tuition only attracts a higher socioeconomic level.
