Guys & Girls: ...girls here...the girls here are....they're "meh"

I'm sure women would describe the men at Drexel the same way LOL.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are simply more guys than girls here. It is what it is. To be blunt, it's largely a tech school. There are a lot of relatively unkempt guys walking around in big hooded sweatshirts and baggy cargo pants or jeans, but this look also attests to the work ethic of Drexel students. However, that's more stereotypical of the University as a tech school. Guys that major in business and arts/sciences (even health, occasionally) will have a bit more style than average and generally a more "put-together" aesthetic. With the ratio of guys to girls, as well as the variety of majors at Drexel, the attractive girls are spread over curricula. This differs from guys, who are mostly split between "geeky" in computer science and engineering and "smooth" in arts/social science programs. "Bros" are kept to a minimum, as well. Drexel is a serious melting pot—students can find anything here.

It boils down to this: Drexel girls think the guys are geeks, and Drexel guys think the girls are stuck-up. Oddly enough, both occasionally turn to Penn for romance, and most of the time, it works out, and everyone's happy.

Social Scene
Truthfully, it is incredibly easy to make friends at Drexel. With the array of majors pursued and the variety of activities, it's not difficult to find people who possess similar interests to yours. Admittedly, many of the friends you'll make freshman year will hail from your dorm, but much of that changes once you're in major-specific courses and begin to join student organizations. Additionally, many people make different friends every year (due to co-op, four-year/five-year programs, etc.)—contributing to a very relaxed social scene.
Hookups or Relationships?
Hookups are inevitable at any university, but it seems as though many Drexel students are involved in relatively low-key relationships. It is common for Drexel students to date amongst themselves, but it's also common for females to date older men or students from other universities.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Going out to the clubs and bars is almost always a sure fire way to meet desirable guys and girls. People usually stay in the West Philadelphia area for this, but it is fairly common for people to go downtown to Old City and party at the numerous bars and clubs in that district.
Dress Code
Considering the absurdly different majors Drexel offers—biomedical to design and merchandising—the dress code is going to vary substantially. Cargo pants and hoodies are commonplace amongst the more technical students, whereas the D&M students are expected to dress in a trendy, put-together manner to represent their major.
