What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is a school that is rated highly and has a great location. The academics are almost ivy league as we share professors with the University of Pennsylvania. The campus is 3 blocks from center city Philadelphia making it easy i=to find something new to do every day. Drexel has a 10-week quarter system that makes each term go by very fast so it is important to stay on top of things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Life at Drexel will keep you busy. The 10-week terms go by in the blink of an eye, and oftentimes you're learning everything that you would learn in a semester at a regular school. There are tons of clubs and activities, and I know very few people who aren't involved in at least one thing outside of class. Co-op is probably the main reason that everyone decides on Drexel, and you won't regret those experiences. You'll hear people working at big-name companies like PWC, Google, and Boeing. There are also a ton of opportunities to go abroad, whether that's an exchange program for a term, an Intensive Course Abroad for a week or two between terms, or going away for co-op. There are plenty of opportunities for research with professors or at the Academy of Natural Sciences. We're also right next to Penn and plenty of students will utilize their resources as well. The area outside of campus can be unsafe and we definitely get our share of DrexelAlerts, but I don't feel any less safe than in other major cities. Overall, Drexel is a great school and if it weren't for my experiences here, I wouldn't have a great job for co-op or the leg-up for grad school. I would definitely recommend the Drexel Experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is the perfect city school. It has a lot of night life and is close to University of Penn to offer college campus life as well. While it is definitely insanely expensive, the school has a lot to offer. The academic terms are 10 weeks long and so it is important that you are able to work in a fast pace. Their greatest attribute is COOP which allows students to gain work experience and get paid while still studying which is a huge strength career wise. The campus feels very safe despite being located in a city. Overall, I would recommend Drexel to any student who enjoys city life and fast paced academics.

If you want the typical college experience just go to Temple. Drexel is no joke.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this place. I chose it because it is the perfect distance from my house where I feel independent but I can also go home in emergencies. My professors are supportive and encourage me to explore my academic and creative limits. The food could be better, but I adore this place with my entire soul. For me, it's home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is in an urban setting. Therefore, there are plenty of activities both on and off campus to participate in. It is one of those campuses where it is hard to determine where the city ends and campus begins. The campus is an environment of growth, inclusion, and participation. Professors are readily available for academic discussions. This is an environment of success and the drive toward forward thinking and innovation are evident.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University’s campus is very beautiful. It is located in West Philadelphia and surrounded by a vibrant city life. My favorite part of Drexel University’s academic curriculum is the co-op program. Also known as the “cooperative-education” program, it allows students to obtain 18 months of a paid, full-time job relating to the field they are studying. This allows students to gain insight on the field they are interested in and gives them a competitive edge after graduation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall my time at Drexel University has been very good. Most of the professors are friendly and easy to learn from, the class size is reasonable for most courses, and I have gotten along with and made friends with many other students in my dorm and in my classes. Although there are some courses I am not entirely satisfied with, for the most part the courses are reasonable, and interesting with reasonable grading. I also think think the cost for attending the school is rather high so that is causing financial issues for my family and I. Overall though, I have been enjoying my time at Drexel
