Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I have enjoyed my time at Drexel University. The college was highly recommended to me by a former graduate student so I decided to apply. My family and I appreciate the city of Philadelphia and visit often. Being a part of a university that expresses so much pride in it's history and students has made a difference to me in my educational path. I have the opportunity to experience instructors, professors, and students from all over the country in the classes I am currently taking. It is refreshing to learn from different perspectives and experiences. The professors I have had thus far are highly qualified and truly have a passion for their nursing career and are vested in supporting their students. I am very happy I chose to attend Drexel and I look forward to graduating and continuing my education at Drexel.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

Graduate programs at Drexel University's LeBow School of Business are great because they rely on a cohort system. This creates a chance to get to know your classmates very well early-on and allows group projects to come together naturally. Many business schools offer cohort programs exclusively for MBA students, but Drexel has made it universal. Professors work together to avoid scheduling conflicts for these cohorts and create curriculum that transitions seamlessly from introductory courses through the advanced level. They are dedicated to creating a true understanding of the material and helping students develop the skills they will need in the workplace. Drexel uses a quarter system instead of semesters so the workload is quite intensive. Professors make themselves available, themselves not assistants (TAs), to help students stay on track, and take advantage of every opportunity to share real world examples of the concepts being covered in class so that the material is never entirely abstract. I attended an ivy league university for my undergraduate degree and saw the majority of professors introduce their TA, distribute a syllabus and leave students to find their own way through the material. The academic support at Drexel really opened my eyes to what education could be. That being said, the greatest value of a Drexel degree is career support. Recruiters are on campus frequently and career advisors are always available. In my first month at Drexel, I received a one-on-one career counseling session, a resume review, a mock interview, and interviewed on campus with a Big 4 accounting firm who hired me before the end of that week. Some degree programs even allow students to take on 6-month paid internships called Co-Op's, at Fortune 500 companies around the country. To accommodate students who are working full-time already, many graduate courses are taught in the evening with the entire cohort scheduled to that course. Working students do not miss out on any part of the cohort experience and do not have to attend school as a part-time student or extend the time it takes to graduate, unless that is what they prefer. The only downside I have experienced at Drexel is a lack of diversity. The majority of graduate students are international students from China. They are very friendly and eager to learn more about America, but it is a stark difference from the more diverse undergraduate level and not in-line with what I have seen in my working life.

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The Laboratory Animal Science Program offers incredible classes that can be directly applied to a career in Laboratory Animal Science. The ability to take online classes while working full time helps pursuing a graduate degree fit into a full time work schedule and maintain a degree of balance between work, school and home life.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel is a well known and well respected school. I look forward to studying there! I have already been so impressed by this institution during the application process. They have been so helpful, encouraging and responsive. I will be starting in January in the Masters of Human Nutrition program and cannot wait!

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the top four co-op programs in the country and there are some pretty cool opportunities here, but the school won't hold your hand to find them. Some of the professors are very helpful if you put forth the effort. Be prepared for incredibly dense curricula

Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2008

Drexel University was a great experience. One of the best things about Drexel is their co-op program. It allows you to work in industry you are studding and helps make great connections for the future. Having already had a co-op under my belt upon graduation led to me getting a job shortly there after.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The engineering program at Drexel University is both rigorous yet satisfying. It builds character, discipline, and self-motivation for job(s) you may obtain in the future. It demands the students to go above and beyond what is required of them. It's not always set in stone which is why satisfied.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2012

Drexel was an amazing experience. I enjoyed the fact that I was taking classes who were on and off campus. I believe this gave me a deeper experience. The faculty were incredible and experts In the field while they were actively doing what they were teaching. They gave me guidance on how to pursue my career, and helped me connect with others in the field. They were using technology that allowed me to interact with my cohort while being away from campus, and I never felt like I couldn't reach my advisor or chair of the program at any time. I felt connected from a distance.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel University's online Doctor of Education program offers access to excellent professors with a passion for helping students succeed. Each course is designed to build off and/or connect to other courses or your dissertation. Coursework is aligned to real-world situations because you are always asked to base papers/projects on your current work/future career environment. However, the workload can be overwhelming if you have a family, career, etc. Overall, I feel like I have learned a plethora of information that will guide me to the next step in my career.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Drexel helps to maximize your college experience, even as a graduate student. There are always events going on through the school or through your specific program that keeps you involved and meeting new people. This includes things like happy hours, trips to museums or other Philly attractions, or a pick up game of beach volleyball on campus.
