I love it. At first I didn't want to go here and the first year was tough but I am so glad I go to Drexel. I've had a lot of great experiences and learned a lot. I have amazing friends and have met some of my heroes through Drexel events and programs.

It's there, it's easy to get and easy to participate in.

You can get anywhere you need to go. Market street is right in the middle of campus so you can get on the subway. There is a shuttle that runs every half hour from Market and 34th to our center city campus which is free for students. Taxis are an option but usually students just take the subway because it's cheaper. The university has a program where you can rent Zip cars as long as you're over 18 which is 3 years younger than most rental cars.

We don't have a football team. Our basketball team is apparently pretty great though. I know a lot of people who really like the intramural sports they participate in though. Our gym is excellent and only a few years old.

The cheap dorms (Towers) are awful, you meet a lot of people but there is barely any living space. Some freshman dorms, like Millennium and Race are great but have restrictions for the honors program and price. Upper classmen housing, like the new Chestnut Square are great though.

It's great being in the city, there's always something to do. There are a lot of restaurants and movie theaters that offer student discounts. Philly sports teams will also offer discounts to home games. There are a ton of discounts at museums as well. We are also right next to UPenn so there's a good amount of interaction with them.

Drexel is pretty diverse. We have a lot of Asian students and international students. Most of the international students are attracted to our engineering program because that is what Drexel is known for, so there aren't very many in the smaller arts majors.

Drexel gave me the most aid out of the schools I applied to, but it is very expensive and most of the aid was merit based. After the first year I didn't receive work study anymore which was frustrating.

The food is getting much better, but still has some problems. The Hans is a terrible dinning hall but only freshman use it. North Side and Taco Bell are pretty good but can get repetitive. They're opening more restaurants and dinning halls in the next few years though.

Health & Safety:
We're number 3 in the country for campus safety. I walk home from friends dorms and computer labs in the middle of the night all the time and always feel safe despite being in the city.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T23:18:36Z
Our campus is fairly strict but only on Freshman. Once you're an upperclassman you can pretty much do what ever you want. Some professors do take attendance more seriously than others though.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T23:16:17Z
It's Philly, there are a lot of options and a lot of pizza.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T23:15:23Z
I love a majority of my professors. They really know what they're talking about because most of them have worked in the industry. Registration has always been pretty easy; I've never had trouble enrolling in a class that I couldn't easily fix.

I love being a film major here. It was rough the first year because I transferred in so I knew fewer people, but now I love most of the professors and the experiences I've had have been great. My friend who transferred to NYU said the programs are very similar and wished she had stayed at Drexel.

There are a lot of labs and and computers available. Printing will cost $.05 to $.1 per page but if you're honors or live in a building with printing it won't be a problem.

Philly weather can vary but this fall has been excellent. Almost everyday the weather has been beautiful. It doesn't get as cold or snowy as farther north. When it does snow it's pretty for the first few hours then gets a bit gross and inconvenient cause it is a city.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T19:31:46Z
Center city is a good time.
College Sophomore 2013-11-11T19:30:23Z
It is improving a lot

I've never had an issue on campus when it came to my safety.

There is a ton of places to go for food that doesn't break your wallet.

I don't live off-campus in my own apartment. I live with my parents.
College Junior 2013-11-06T21:29:27Z
I don't spend much time at school with nightlife.

The main dining center on campus, The Hans, is always the first thing to come to mind whenever someone asks what to change about Drexel. Alot of students enjoy The Hans because it is a buffet and depending on if you have a meal plan or not, could be very beneficial. However, alot of students report that the food served at The Hans makes them sick immediately after eating it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
