Campus vibes at Drexel?

Hey peeps, so I've been thinking a lot about different colleges and I'm wondering if anyone could let me know what Drexel University is really like. How's the campus community, social scene, and what are the standout features of the school?

Hey there! I'm glad you're considering Drexel—it's a unique school with a lot to offer. One of the standout features of Drexel is its co-op program, which allows students to gain up to 18 months of real-world work experience before graduation. This program is integrated into the curriculum and is highly valued by both students and employers—it can give you a serious edge in the job market.

As for the campus vibes, Drexel has an urban campus in Philadelphia, which means the community feels integrated with the city. Being right next to UPenn, there's a collegiate atmosphere in the area. You'll find plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, and cultural activities nearby because of the urban setting. Drexel itself is known for being career-focused, and students are generally motivated and driven.

The social scene is what you make of it; there are hundreds of student organizations and activities. As it's not a traditional campus with a separate 'college town,' you won't get that insular college bubble feeling. Some people love the sense of independence and maturity this brings, while others might prefer a more traditional campus setup.

Drexel is definitely worth visiting to see if you can get a sense of whether it's right for you. Some students thrive in the city environment and love the blend of school and city life, while others decide it's not quite their scene. Either way, it's an exciting time to explore what different universities can offer you!
