Is Drexel University any good for a Computer Science Major as an Undergrad freshman?

Many of my friends say that Drexel is not a very good university to attend to because it is not well reputed university and is also not known to many. I have been selected for computer science major and also in the honors program of the university. They have given me a decent scholarship leaving me with 14000 USD of tuition to pay per year. Please tell me if it is worth studying in?

Hi there! Congrats on your acceptance and your major scholarship! While Drexel is ranked #133 overall by US News, it tends to be higher-ranked for computer science. We have it as #68 for compsci: https://www.collegevine.com/schools/best-colleges-for-computer-science. College Factual ranks it within the top 35: https://drexel.edu/cci/academics/computer-science-department/.

It also appears that they have a unique co-op/professional development program: https://drexel.edu/cci/academics/undergraduate-programs/bsba-computer-science/

It may be helpful to try to get in contact with Drexel compsci grads to ask about their experience (try contacting the department about career outcomes and see if they can put you in touch, or ask the accepted students' group if current students can answer your questions). Luckily, compsci is an in-demand major with very good ROI in general.

Hope this helps!
