What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel can be a very challenging institution for some students. We run on a quarter system instead of semesters meaning we are in class all year round. Including summer. However, Drexel offers co-ops to every students. Co-op is a 6 month work experience that can begin as early as sophomore year and is usually paid. So for half the year you are just working instead of being in a classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is a great university if you enjoy living in the city. There is always something to do, and always some place to go. But if you want to stay at Drexel, you have to work for it. It is not a college you can just coast through. But if you really care about what you're studying, you will thrive at Drexel. The food is the worst part about it, but it's worth it when you see what you are working towards while you are taking the classes for your major.

It is awesome. Expensive, but awesome. There is so much opportunity to do anything that you want. Faculty is very open to working with students in order to assure that they have what they need in order to succeed. It is truly a place that knowledge is sacred and rewarded.

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.
