Named for a prominent 19th century philanthropist, Drexel University is a 4-year private research university in Philadelphia. Drexel offers bachelor’s degrees in over 80 academic majors with an emphasis on experiential learning. Additionally, the Drexel campus is home to North America’s largest living biofilter wall and the nation’s largest private medical school. For arts enthusiasts, Drexel hosts two art galleries as well as the Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection.
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.

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.
