  • Drexel pretty much excels in every subject, particularly art and science (engineering is what we're known for). However, the tuition is WAY too expensive for most people to afford, and…

  • 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…

    Like in any college you have to be open to new experiances and meeting new people. I love the atmosphere of the college, I love the location, and I love the people that go here. It's an amazing place to learn.

    I love living in the city, but there isn't a lot to do right on Drexel's campus. You need to either go to UPenn's campus or to Center City or Olde City. I also wish there were more clubs and ways to get involved. But I do like the people I have met, and I really enjoy my classes.

    I am currently a freshman in the Photography department at Drexel. I just love it. I am already taking classes in my major, which is unlike most other schools. Usually you have to take gen-ed classes before you even get to see the classes you really want. But everything I'm doing here I know for sure is preparing me in the best way for my future. Plus the Drexel has the co-op program unlike any other school and I cannot wait until I get to do mine because I think that will really give me a jump start in the real world and I trust it will actually bring me to my dream career! I feel like this place is really going to make everything I've wanted in the future a reality.

    I dorm here, and I have to say it is an awesome experience. There are many resources that are readily available, from the library to learning centers. There are many people here I know I can go to and am comfortable going to if I need help. Being in a city setting makes things interesting and there is always something to do. I also feel very safe on campus with the campus security and police everywhere. The people here are great and the staff is always nice.
