Drexel University is a really good college and is one that allows for every opportunity for students' success. There are many services to help students with every aspect of student life. Professors are all helpful and friendly. I'm glad that I go here and wouldn't have it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Drexel University is that it is a great school. If you are looking for a school that is focused on academics then Drexel is for you. Once graduating from Drexel University you will have much more job opportunities then if you had graduated from a different university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After just three terms, Drexel University has become my home. This university has offered me so much more than just an education. It has given me life long friends, experiences, and lessons. I am more than happy to go to school in the heart of university city and absorb all that this environment has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After finishing my first year in engineering at Drexel I can say that I was challenged and pushed in ways that I have never been before. There are pros and cons to being a quarter system school and some people that although things move very quickly and are sometimes rushed through, we learn more than people do at other schools and are more prepared. Our co-op program is super beneficial and has taught me how to be professional and what to expect in the workplace when I graduate at such a young age that most people are not exposed to until later on in their college career. Even though we have no summer vacation while being on co-op it will pay off in the long run when we graduate and have months of working experience compared to those who have hardly any internship experience which will help tremendously when finding jobs after graduation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a pay-to-play school: if you don't have the money or the grades to afford the school, there are few opportunities. But, for those (like me) who received enough in scholarships in grants, there are more than enough resources and opportunities to make the college experience worth it. The food is overpriced for mediocre choices and quality, and the housing quality is excellent, but with a price much too high. Overall though, I absolutely love it here in Philly as a Dragon. I'm proud to brag about my school, but I'm also aware of problematic policies and professors from the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Campus doesn't have many hip restaurants or places to congregate Saxby's is one of few. Professors often not interested in mentoring or making time to answer course content questions. Advisors have poor comunication and loooong email response time. Summer sessions have very limited course selection. Disappointing experience after high expectations, not student friendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! Drexel University is right in University City in Philadelphia with Center City just one stop away on the subway. It is so conveniently located! The class sizes are pretty good too. The lectures have about 200 students, however, each class has a Recitation/Discussion class that you must also attend. I find this even more helpful than the lectures themselves especially because there are usually about 30 students in these classes and we go over specific practice problems and it's more personal. The TA's here are very well educated, and the professors are always easily accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like attending Drexel University. It's close to home, so I'm able to commute, but it is also a little expensive. Most professors in the eng department are mediocre and may be more focused on their research than the performance of their students - although, as usual - if you make an effort to get to know a professor, they usually respond pretty well. Drexel runs on the quarter system (10 week terms), which makes classes really rushed and hard to manage. But it also offers the co-op system, which is basically one or three 6-month internships, depending on your package (4 years vs 5 years). All in all, Drexel is a great place to go if you don't mind hard work and responsibility and getting a head start in the workplace.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe that Drexel University is an amazing school with plenty of opportunities available for you to take advantage of. From their co op program to the their study aboard programs, there are plenty of ways for you to get introduced to your field and explore other cultures! There is a steep price associated with this school but if you have the means, apply!
