    Make sure you have a roomate. If you end up without one, request one. Make the most out of the people that you meet there. Be part of the Drexel community as much as possible.

    Have an idea of what you want to do in after you graduate college. Also start getting accustomed to working quickly and studying on your own because Drexel is on a quarter system so 10 weeks go by very quickly with midterms starting as early as week 4. Finally, be passionate about going to school and research into your potential major before making a decision.

    A Drexel education is expensive; make sure you think it's worth it before you decide to attend. Drexel is also a fast paced environment. One quarter is only ten weeks, which fly by. If you can't work quickly and efficiently, Drexel is not a good place for you.

    Visit the campus and talk to as many current students/faculty/staff that work with your prospective major as possible. Make sure that you are comfortable with the academic, 10-Week, quarter system before committing to Drexel. Explore Philadelphia and the campus area to make sure that it is a good fit for you.

    I was really disappointed with Drexel's on-line program. there is a very indifferent attitude with some of the staff and professors. If you dont understand, it is your problem, and when you are paying something like $ 800 per unit, I think professors should be able to teach or at least try to understand the problems that you are having. The overall class structure is good, but the tech support was so very unsubstancial and I could not follow along. I did not understnad what they were doing, and there was no one to really talk to. That was even worse, I just had to order a transcript, and my friend stuggled to understand how to even do that. It took us a couple of hours to do something that should have taken 15 minutes. Some professors were really cool and understood the program and problems, so they were accommodating the problems, but for some, they graded you down because you did not understand and leaving you in the dark. I think there are schools out there that are far better... and do offer assistance. Who ever heard of a school tech department operating only 9-5 Monday through Friday, and you do homework on a weekend, or late at night and there is no one to talk to. This is NOT acceptable. Before you enroll for this program, make sure you understand the tech programs and how they work. Ask a lot of questions! There is no sense in spending all this money and not getting what you need out of the program. Ask a lot of questions. Many did not have issues, and maybe it was my ability to understand the technology wihich the administration knew I did not understand. A school who can not offer assistance when you ask for it, has some issues.
