Drexel University provides its students with the skills needed in order to operate in their desired careers! My favorite part about Drexel is the Co-op Program, which offers real world work experience counted towards college credit. Attending this school will give you a head start in your professional stages of life.

Drexel also allows its students to engage with people from all over the world, which is very exciting. Students from all parts attend Drexel for its popular education system. This in combination with its professional amenities creates a wonderful college environment!

Campus food is not that great, and for your freshman year is heavily overpriced with the dining plan. There is definitely high cultural diversity on campus, more so than other colleges. There are so many great professors on campus who are willing to help you when you have trouble. With my experience as a biology major and in my first year taking mathematics, biology, and chemistry, my only complaints are with the chemistry department, which is admittedly (and literally) poor. The labs are not well-structured and the equipment is super old. Otherwise, classes are great! I'm loving my professors, and they teach well and with humor. Tuition is very expensive, at least without the scholarships Drexel may give you. Co-op is worth your time!
