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.

    This is a great school, pride in students who choose to Be Different with hard work ethics. The co-op program within the school is outstanding and will give on the job experience throughout the years of schooling, preparing for jobs better than any other college or university. The location, the city of Philadelphia, is one of the best cities in the United States, just a subway ride away from historic Old Philadelphia and more modern Love Park this is a great city in which to get a college education.

    Drexel is an incredible school because of its focus on experiential learning. Students here have a huge advantage over their peers if they take advantage of the co-ops. Some can graduate with up to a year and a half of major-related job experience.

    I was told by a former dean at Drexel, that if we came to Drexel for college, then we were in the wrong place. However, if we came to work, then Drexel is the right place for you. This private institution is very well-known for its co-op experience and the partnerships it has with several corporations and organizations that it ensures that the students graduating from Drexel, will graduate already knowing that they have a full-time job waiting for them.

    What makes Drexel so interesting is it's co-op program. I think a college setting you up with internships in the field that interests you is an extremely valuable opportunity that few colleges can match. It aids in building a resume and seeing if a career choice is the right for you.

    Drexel is the best example of a fast-paced, challenging but not-too-challenging, and down-to-earth school that I could imagine. Set in the truly urban environment of Philadelphia, the entire city is your campus. Although it can take up to five years, leaving here will leave you with lots of career experience, a thorough and diverse course set, and real satisfaction.

    Drexel University offers the job and social opportunities of any urban campus while also maintaining the appeal of a small college by having various programs which give you one on one attention. Drexel also enhances your learning by really bridging the gap between earning a degree and getting a job through their world class co-op program.
