Drexel University Reviews
Review Drexel University
Drexel is where your dreams can come to life! Ambition cannot wait! Very fast-paced, important to stay on top of your work. And get help when needed, it is not hard to find a tutor or a friendly person willing to help you when you are struggling. The teachers care immensely about each and every student and are always available to help. The food is top-notch after having a new food provider being instated earlier in the year! Drexel is the college of your dreams if you favor fast-paced, hands-on, and job security.
Since Drexel isnt a very sport related school, the Greek community fills that void. As a member of the Greek community myself, i can say that all of the fraternities and sororities usually try to host events for nongreek students to raise money. My fraternity Theta Chi has held a few barbecues and brunches to raise money for The USO. Another fraternity on campus Alphs Epsilon Pi held a pie in the face contest to raise money for cancer research. As a member of Theta Chi we have the optiom to live in our fraternity house at a rate of 550 a month, which is very cheap in comparison to apartment buildings in the area. The greek community helped me in my time of need when i was struggling with roommate issues, and the brothers of Theta Chi helped me get through everything. Overall, joining Greek life was the best decision i have made so far!
Drexel University is not your typical university. It is not a university that is known for their quality education nor their extracurricular activities. It is not a school with much school spirit nor a school that students would want to go to for the "party" life. It is a school that has been structured in such a way that it prepares the student for a life after college, and it exceeds greatly in this area. With the university's co-op program, a program which allows half of their education to be working in the field real-time, it gives a practical application to all that the student has learned from their classes. While not the top university, because of this program, Drexel alumni are made equal, if not more, with other graduates from more "prestigious" colleges and universities during their job searches after graduation as they have real-world experience from a job-perspective, and they are able to practically apply the knowledge learned from classes.
