What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
This university offers great city living where museums, concerts and sports events are only a stones throw away. The opportunity offered to students to work 6 months inbetween academics is also appealing both in terms of seeing if your chosen major is a good fit and to network prior to graduation. I would rate these areas as a high ten.
Sean from Quakertown, PA
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.
