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 has rigorous programs that encourage students to learn as much as possible about the career paths they decide to follow. The professors are understanding and are willing to help in every way they can. The entire area is very safe at daytime and at night time due to the safety precautions Drexel takes.

    Drexel is fast-paced and is known for its co-op program. There are also lots of different clubs and programs created to help people socialize and explore other interests. However, there is definitely a bureaucratic leadership that creates what we call the "Drexel Shaft."

    this school appears to be the best school that i visited in my college search. the programs, facilities, food and services were all awesome. the downside is the exorbitant cost which makes attending this school unattainable for many.

    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.
