    They have many clubs and acitivities.

    Great for these types of students

    This schhol's online program is great for working students and parents. Also, if you are looking for flexibility, and not having to sit in a classroom, then this is the program for you.

    I can't relate to dorm life, because I currently live off campus, and an hour away.

    Academic Rigor

    The academia classes can be time consuming,especially if it's a writing intensive course, and can become challenging, but in the end you gain more knowledge in different areas of nursing.

    Tips for prospective students

    I don't recommend taking more than two classes per semester if currently working full-time, and the classes go very quickly since semesters are only ten weeks.

    I think Drexel University Online nursing program, is great for RN's who already have an associates degree, and are looking to further their degree, while still being able to work full-time, and take care of a family. Very flexible for any individual.

    Campus Safety

    Although I am an online student, occasionally I go to campus to meet with my advisor or visit the bookstore there is always security around on foot, bike, and patrolling campus in a car.

    Clubs and Activities

    Drexel has various clubs and activities. Everything from intramural sports to Greek life. There is pretty much a club for every interest with most of them being available to online students as well.

    Great for these types of students

    Drexel is known for its engineering and science programs.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    During your time at Drexel, you must attend at least one basketball game. These games have a strong sense of community. It's great being around people that love Drexel University as much as I do.

    What to do for fun

    It's the city of Philadelphia. Between the various museums, entertainment and sporting events, there is always something fun to do.

    Academic Rigor

    Obviously online courses require a lot on independent work. One of the most important things an online student needs to remember is to follow the syllabus. The syllabus will be the most accurate information regarding assignments, due dates, etc.

    Tips for prospective students

    Listen to your advisor and InsideTrack coach. They are very resourceful.

    In three sentences

    Drexel University Online provides excellent resources to it's students. From your academic advisors to your inside track coach, everyone is very willing to help answer any questions or ease concerns you may have. If someone doesn't know the answer to your question (although it's rare), they will always find someone who does.
