Going into Drexel, I expected to get my degree without working too hard to get it. Let me tell you after a year of experience, that will NOT be the case if you come to school here! Regardless of your major, you will study and learn a lot! We're on a ten week quarter system so our classes are very fast-paced, but still manageable.

    A university full of potential opportunities. It is a great learning environment for students within a variety of majors. The administration is sometimes disorganized and frustrating.

    I had had high hopes for Drexel. I was really disappointed. I think the classes are well put togethe, and I learned a lot in the classes, but the tech issues are so over the top, and I have wasted HOURS trying to understand what is needed. Some of the professors are very indifferent. Even the teachers/professors were complaining.

    It's location is excellent, since you get a variety of food and shopping from University of Pennsylvania and Center City. However, it's extremely expensive because they're constantly under construction which is awful. It's unique because it has a co-op system that gives you real world experience.

    Drexel is everything I thought it would be, excellent. The COOP program is just one of the many things that make this University stand out. My experience with administration, advisers,professors, teaching assistants and all the support staff that it takes to keep Drexel running has been overwhelmingly positive, not perfect. If you believe you have potential and want to be in an environment that you can use it, take a good look at Drexel, don't just take the tour. You'll be surprised at all the people you can speak with just by asking.

    This is a very dynamic and exciting school with a multitude of opportunities for social networking, career advancement, and advanced research. In addition to receiving a high quality education with tons of support from staff and advisers, there are numerous activities, events, and places on campus to build connections with people in your field of study. The location is convenient to tons of shopping, cultural, and art activities but you still won't run out of things to do and places to eat on campus.

    This school is way too expensive, you could go to a much affordable school. I was scratching when I attended here. No help whatsoever from the college except for trying to suck your pockets dry.

    Philadelphia is a very active city, and Drexel's campus matches this. The people here are outgoing and fun-loving and thrives in a fast-paced environment.The crime rate,however,is high and it's not really safe to walk outside in the night.

    Drexel is a school full of opportunities. The school has excellent success with their co-op program which allows students to gain real world experience before graduation. The programs are rigorous but well worth the effort.
