  • Freshman dorms are... interesting. The suite-style dorms are super nice, but most of the traditional dorms are old, gross, uninviting, and often plagued by a variety of bugs. I think…

    The dining hall has great food. Also, there are many places in the area that accept dragon dollars which comes with a meal plan. So everything is very convenient and there is something there for everyone.

    The official campus dining hall, nicknamed The Hans, is not the best food in the world, but it will do in a pinch. Mostly freshman eat there because of the mandatory meal plan, but a lot of people just go to food trucks and cook at their apartments once they get to sophomore year and up. The food trucks are great, and Penn's campus has a lot of other food options that aren't available directly on campus.

    Many restaurants around town advertise that they take Dragon Dollars. They do, but you have to pay the school extra money in order to get them; it's easier just to use cash at the restaurants. The Dining Center is currently lacking in variety, and tends to offer not so healthy options. Northside Dining Terrace is wonderful and conveniently close to the dorms, but tends to be expensive.

    On campus dining options have been improving over the past few years and the dining hall renovation that was just completed looks great. There are also a lot of non-dining hall restaurants that you can eat at with your meal plan. There is a nice variety of off-campus dining options that are very close to campus and pretty student friendly and affordable.

    Not the greatest but there are plenty of alternatives. The 2 dorms I've lived in have more than adequate kitchens which are available on every floor. Food trucks, cheap and excellent.

    There are so many food and dining options on campus and throughout the surrounding areas that your stomach will probably be overwhelmed. I am pretty sure that there is not a single type of food that you cannot obtain within a mile of campus. The dining plans available allow you to purchase food at campus stores as well as off-campus restaurants.

    Lots of great friendly food trucks, and of course many great restaurants are located in the nearby Center City.

    Greek life is very active here, and we're also known for being anti-hazing. Recruitment and Rush week are in the 2nd and 3rd weeks of Fall quarter, and every sorority and fraternity has their own social group and activities that they hold throughout the year.

    It's very prominent and there are many chapters to choose from. There are 6 Panhellenic chapters and 12 Inter fraternity chapters.

    Drexel has a greek life on their campus. It is an amazing way to meet people and have opportunity for volunteer and leadership roles on campus as well as off. Greek life is an enriching opportunity and I encourage everyone to try it out.

    Drexel seems to be pretty big with Greek Life, and there are a large number of sororities and fraternities on campus.

    Greek life is extremely fun at Drexel. The Greek community is very close and always encourages students to join the family.
