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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is located in the amazing city of Philadelphia. It is a hub for culture, socializing, taking part in protests, volunteering, and finding jobs. Drexel is great for job placement, preparing students for professional life, and realizing which career paths they want to pursue. I love it here and I am so grateful have picked a school that has presented me with endless opportunities. I have had the chance to study abroad multiple times, intern abroad, explore new languages, and participate and take leadership roles in diverse clubs. I highly recommend Drexel University to students who are passionate about learning and serious about their studies. Drexel is truly unique!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A school who values the dollar over their students. None of the large amounts of money we pay to the school is given back to the students. our housing facilities are dilapidated and warn down with rodents and bug infestations. The food options under meal plans are limited and unhealthy, just this week there was an outbreak of e-coli.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a really good school but the tuition is outrages and limited scholarship opportunities. The campus is in the middle of the city so easy access to shops. There are a lot of things that can get you involved. The quarter system is a bit to much to handle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm currently a Sophomore at Drexel University and love going to school in an Urban environment. As someone who grew up her whole life in a small town, coming to Drexel University has allowed me to experience forms of diversity that I've never experienced before. Through daily conversation and observation, I find myself learning much about people's differences. My eyes have been opened to the uniqueness of each student on campus. My prior understandings of people from various backgrounds and social classes, owning various values and standards, have expanded. Drexel University excels in academics and is known for its exceptionally valuable Co-op program. I'm surrounded by students that understand time management and are intentional about their career goals. Ambition Can't Wait is our slogan for a reason, and I am proud to go to a University that pushes me forward to take leaps of faith in finding an area and/or career that I can be passionate about before I graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a great institution for students to attend. They offer plenty of guidance to their students on their careers and have professors that help with academics. Additionally as students, we are able to participate in co-op programs where we are able to explore our chosen careers and work during that time. Some of the students are even hired at their co-op which gives great security for once we graduate and start our careers. Overall the campus is great and there are always great things to do at DU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Drexel University as I know it is an institution that I can rely on and will allow for me to partake in varied activities while still getting a wonderful education. I'm still a freshman, so I know I still have a lot to see and explore, but I trust that if I need something, Drexel will make its best effort to help me.
