Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love that my program is online, and the school does well to set up cohorts, so you are taking classes with familiar names, if not faces. The advising support is also very strong. However, the instruction is hit-or-miss, and I feel that each quarter, I find myself enrolled in one class with a very strong instructor and thought-provoking materials, and one class which is a seeming waste of time, and taught by an instructor who does not present new ideas and/or does not know how to suitably use technology. Drexel is not cheap, and offers little institutional aid. If it were not for the convenience of the online program, I would look elsewhere.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

I am in the Publication Management program, focused on the Publishing Industry, a division of the Communication Department. I feel like the professors are extremely knowledgeable and well-known in their respective fields, except they are nearly impossible to contact. The advisor of my program is especially difficult to contact, which is frustrating. The expensiveness of the school should allow for more contact with advisors and better career outlooks.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I love drexel! I just started here for the graduate program and the professors are so quick to help. They don't baby you. You are definitely an adult here. While the shuttles are helpful, it can be hard to get transportation if you live outside of the university city loop. I don't go out at night in surrounding areas outside of the campus, but the campus itself is super safe and their are escorts you can call. Overall Drexel is top notch and I am getting A+ education.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Drexel is right next to University of Pennsylvania so students can leverage the social outings that UPenn has but Drexel itself does not have the same luxury. Since Drexel is in the city, public transportation is convenient and there are many dorms/on campus housing around Drexel but definitely could be better quality. Professors do range from good to bad so it will depend on your course and who the professor is but in general I feel my professors have been more or less above satisfactory.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I learn Arts Administration at Drexel University, at the first sight the university city in Philadelphia is safe and interesting, and my advisor send me lots of information before I came to USA and offered several job opportunities before school open. Only two Chinese students in my major, total 18, so I think it is quite diverse. We also have DrexelOne on our smart phone, we can track our course and school news easily!

Degree: Law

The law school is young which means students have a great deal of control over what happens in the school. The facility and staff are incredibility experienced and responsive to student feedback.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel University is more suited to students who are responsible and diligent. The Coop program gives all graduates a leg up because of their professional experience.

Degree: Liberal Studies

The College of Medicine is great. The campus is okay, needs a little renovating. Center City is a cool place once you learn how to get around.
