    Don't be afraid to breath a little and have fun. Though you feel like you'll need to work and study for ten weeks straight, allow yourself time to just relax. Don't be afraid to just hop on the shuttle and explore center city for a few minutes.

    Explore the city as much as possible. There's so much to do here; you just need to be open to it. Unlike other colleges, all of Philadelphia is your campus. I would highly recommend the Co-op experiences (three six-month internship-like job experiences across five years). Be prepared to move in a very fast-paced setting because here at Drexel, we do ten-week long quarters instead of the more typical and longer semesters. They're quarters and not trimesters here because unless you're in freshmen or senior year (and assuming you're doing the five-year program), you will be busy year-round whether it's ten-week course terms or six months of Co-op. It might sound rough at first, but the Dragons here wear this load as a source of pride. Don't be afraid to push your limits!

    I would suggest getting involved early on. This will be important when building your resume for co-op jobs. Drexel can be a fairly expensive school so it's important to take advantage of the scholarships and grants they offer. Another thing it that while nightlife is fun and exciting just be careful. People make Drexel out to be more dangerous then it really is nonetheless it's important to remember a city environment is very different from a small town.

    Drexel has academic quarters are short. Use your time wisely. Get a calendar fill it with all your due dates. Come to class prepared with homework done and questions on hand. Do NOT be afraid to ask questions.

    Visit campus before you decide to attend Drexel. It's not for everyone. If you visit and you feel like you belong, you should definitely commit. If you really want to go to Drexel, don't miss out on all the opportunities Drexel has to offer. Don't be scared to leave home. Philadelphia is a beautiful place to be.
