What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a school to go to if you know what you want to study and are willing to put in the work right away. For many, there is not a lot of time for parties and binges, but if you are smart and put in the work, you will find an opening. Overall, Drexel is a good university, but not a party school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a good school. Most of the complaints that I have, and that I hear are not due to the academics, unless you count the cost. It can seem overpriced, and very well may be, but the money the students pay is starting to come back into the school now. While Drexel is not the best school overall right now, it is steadily improving. Our current president, while overpaid himself, seems to have a good vision to improve the infrastructure on campus. In the next few years, I expect Drexel to continue to increase in it's overall quality.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel definitely isn't for everyone. It's located in West Philadelphia and has a very urban feel which I love but I know people who prefer more of a grassy state school campus. It's walking distance from the Philadelpha Art Museum and Center City so there's always plenty of night life and things to do on weekends. Drexel also strays away from the "traditional" college experience by implementing the quarter system, which means each term is only 10 weeks long, making the work more fast paced and rigorous. This takes some adjustment and is stressful at first, but it makes for better time management skills. The co-op program is fantastic. It is a great resumé builder and you get several months of work experience before you even graduate. I would recommend Drexel to anyone who enjoys being challenged and wants state of the art career building starting freshman year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a transfer student and coming from my previous school, Drexel is absolutely incredible. My professors are extremely qualified and experienced in their fields, students are passionate and approachable, the campus is beautiful. I take part in greek life and it was definitely a great way to get involved. Not to mention Drexel is super close to center city and their are subway stations right on campus so getting around the city is no problem at all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very "you get whatever you put in school". Nothing is really handed to you, but there are plenty of opportunities to be found. The overall culture very well prepares you for the real-world as there is no one specifically pushing you to do anything, you have to be driven yourself to be successful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a rigorous academic intuition with the right amount of fun. The engineering program is great especially with the hands on experience you'll receive from co-op. Drexel has lots to offer since it is located in the city of Philadelphia. It's also walking distance from 30th Street Station where you can catch a train to any major city via train.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Simply put expensive, overrated and a workload. I find that the majority of my floormates are heavy drinkers who like to spend their free-time, if they luckily have any, going out at night to smoke some joints and get it on with other people of their kind. As an introverted and reserved person studying Biomedical Engineering, I find myself stressing over the amount of strenuous work provided while I see others easily getting through the college life without much worry or thought.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Avoid going here. The entire Drexel beauracratic system is a money grab. You pay tuition during your internships (co-op). You even pay tuition during summer breaks and open quarters. The course offerings are rigged to force students to take additional quarters to graduate. This place is not worth 30-40k a year in tuition, especially since no one has heard of the university outside of Pennsylvania. The facilities are subpar, each meal in the cafeteria costs around 10-12 dollars. They literally have fees for EVERYTHING. The tuition bills are cunningly due BEFORE financial aid disbursements so they can collect a late fee of about 300 dollars each quarter. I recommend attending UPENN, Temple or Penn State which are ten times the school for 1/4th the price. Do yourself a favor and avoid life long debt and go to a much better school. If I have at least convinced one person to avoid this debt trap then I have done my job. I have transferred to another instate University and am GLAD I LEFT DREXEL.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love our campus' environment and all the activities we can participate. We have the best gym in Philly, also the famous co-op program. One thing isn't that perfect is that our tuition fee is also one of the most expensive ones in the US. Other than that, everything else is enjoyable. I love the city life here, and you will have lots of friends as well once you come to Drexel. By the way, our dining isn't so great, forgot to mention it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is in a fun part of Philadelphia and has provided me with everything I need for graduation and grad school. Most of my professors have been fantastic, available, and helpful. However, Drexel's Financial Aid Office is an absolute travesty and honestly, if I had known how bad it was, I would not have gone here for that reason alone.
