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.

    Drexel University is a great school for anyone looking to earn a head start in real world experience and building connections for a career. The co-op plans provide the perfect opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of what's in store after college and is also good for anyone who isn't sure of what they want to be and wants to test out some work both in and out of the country. The work is hard and fast, but it pays--mostly literally.

    Drexel University is a highly accredited college and is a great learning institution. Drexel cares a lot about academics but also cares a lot about student life and all the other aspects of being in college. Attending Drexel is one of my greatest life investments that will have a rewarding outcome.

    Drexel is a very career-focused school where most students already have an idea of what field they want to be in after graduation. Professors truly care about students and it is up to the students in what they make their college experience. Drexel is also a technology-driven school, so Wi-fi and computers are always available at all points of campus.

    Drexel University is a school that I feel, is focused on preparing me for my career. I am taking classes that directly relate to my field. I am interacting with professors and other faculty that can and do help me.

    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.
