I am going to be an incoming freshman at Drexel. They could not have made me feel more welcome or included on all of my visits. The University is in the middle of one of the most vibrant cities in America and I cant wait to get there! Drexel has everything I want in a University and more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is in the city which makes it big and small at the same time. There are plenty opportunities and activities to take advantage of. The 10 week quarter system goes by very fast, so it is important to keep up with academic work. There are plenty resources, find them and use them!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Drexel and all of the opportunities it provides to me. Especially the co-op, it’s an amazing way for students to get some actual hands on learning on their intended major. Not only this but there can be a paid co-op that allows students to make a good amount of money which can be very useful when it comes to students who will be facing student loans in the near future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Over all I think Drexel University is a great school and it really prepares a student for after graduation with their co-op program. The co-op program gives the student the opportunity to have work experience in their desired career choice which will give the the step forward when finding a job and also have that experience to add to their resume. The professors are very informative and helpful and are willing to help their students succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A good university that is going to be great in the future. There are many projects to improve the university and a lot of money is coming in. The students are professional and hard working. High employment rate after graduation. Some student are not really bright at the start, but after graduation most students are really good at what they do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of Drexel University is positive. I love the location (the city) even though you should not walk alone at night. The academics are challenging but the perfect amount of challenge. The buildings are nice and they are all close together, so inbetween classes you do not have to rush from classroom to classroom. Most of the professors are very accommodating towards the students and have relatively favorable office hours. The community around campus is extremely welcoming and there is an activity for just about everyone. I enjoy being on campus because it feels like home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is indeed, a very expensive school to attend. However, if you are smart with where you decide to live and where to get food, it won't put you in crippling debt. Drexel is also an extremely convenient place to be because it is right next to University of Pennsylvania, so you have access to those stores, and Center City is very easy to access as well. What makes Drexel worth it, though, is its co-op program. It can be difficult finding the right co-op, and for some students, they might not have the best co-op experience, but it is an opportunity that few other universities have, and if you plan far enough ahead, you can have a great experience. In addition, because of its proximity to other Philadelphia-based universities, you can also find plenty of various volunteer and research opportunities if you ask around. There are also many research opportunities on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is a very practical school that aims to set you up for a solid future. It sets a fast pace and tries to put you more in work situations than academic. Coop, which they are known for, is one of the most important parts of the curriculum, whatever your major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Here I am, sitting in my dorm room. Broke, ashamed, and tired. It's 12:07am in the morning, and I have a 10am Math 102 lecture when I wake up from my two hours of sleep. Yesterday, I befriended a mouse in the library. We talked about Chemistry and how hard it is to survive here at Drexel. We both agreed that the classrooms belonged in either the set of Human Centipede or SAW. We also agreed that the cockroaches here a quite friendly, to which we both hate. The teachers are great, the mouse and I learn a lot here. We would call it home except for the fact that the resident halls don't feel like home. No, I'm not being dramatic just... okay dramatic. I mean the showers are gross, I'd rather bathe in Schuylkill. Overall it's okay here. Other than the fact that there are exams every five milliseconds. I can't even rest for a half a second before I'm writing my full name on a bright green scantron in the dank and dark Main Auditorium, on a 175 year old piece of plank wood. I guess that's where my nonexistent money is going to. The mouse agrees.

Describe a typical weekend.

I'm in my room, most likely crying. My exam review sheets are soggy with my tears. My roommate is gone sleeping comfortably in her bed at home. I note, not all majors are created equally.
