Reviews Dorm Life

  • 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…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Drexel has 2 main dining halls that accept meal swipes; Hans and Urban Eatery. The food at both locations are average, but Hans is buffet style so you can really eat to your fill. There are also various restaurants scattered around campus (shake shack, chick-fil-A, chipotle). For your grocery needs there is a school store that accepts school credit (dining dollars).

    The food is OK. We got a new food provider this year and they're trying to get better. My main problem is that the meal plan only lets us get food at one location on the weekends. That food gets old after a while.

    The campus dining halls are not all that great. The best place for first years is NorthSide Dining Terrace, which has Chick-Fil-A, Subway, and Currito, however, it uses dining dollars. Once you are no longer bound to the meal plan that Drexel forces first years to take, there are a great number of delicious places to grab a quick bite or a full meal, you are in Philly after all!

    Urban Eatery is a dining option for sit down, restaurant style meals, while the Hanschumacher dining center is more similar to a cafeteria.

    The Handschumacher Dining Hall only has good food during orientation, student tours, and student visits; otherwise the food is average or gross. The North Dining Hall, which is attached to a dorm, provides a better variety of options. There are plenty of restaurants around campus and in Center City that will suit all of your taste buds.

    Some students complain about the food at Drexel, while others say that the food and dining is fantastic. Again, just like dorms, the food and dining depend on the individuals taste and preference. There is a large variety of foods to choose from on campus. Even so, once in a while students decide to explore University City, Philadelphia and they go out to eat at restaurants around the area.

    There are so many options on campus. If you want something cheap, but don't want food from the dining hall, there are food trucks everywhere that are totally affordable.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    There is some Greek life on campus. The frats usually throw some good parties. There have been a few negative things happening to some fraternities in the news lately, though. The hard part is trying to distinguish between actual Greek life and honors fraternities. I am in the music honors fraternity.

    I was never part of Greek Life, and I don't think I ever will be, but you can still be involved in the activities they host so you won't even feel a difference. Basically, you don't even have to be involved in greek life to be active in it.

    Again, I'm not a participant in Greek Life, so I can't say much about it. It's not really my thing, but I'd it's pretty moderate around campus. You see the occasional sorority or fraternity around campus doing some kind of charity event like pie-ing people in the face or dunk tanks or water balloons. There's about a block's worth of houses around one street corner, but nothing too crazy, I guess.

    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.
