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!
In the heart of Philadelphia, Drexel University provides so many more opportunities than other colleges/universities. With the co-op program where you are getting three six-month jobs, you build on your resume, your experiences, and you academic knowledge. Because of this, most of our students graduate with a job. With the city on our side and having access to the world being right next to 30th Street Train Station and PHL International Airport, we have more access to companies and opportunities. We have state-of-the-art facilities and connections to companies who have what we do not have from PECO to Microsoft to Disney to Google to Apple and more.
