WHAT I LIKED

The environment of Drexel University fit perfectly for me the minute I stepped on campus. I love being on campus within a city and making my way around with the ability to explore. There are so many amazing places you can visit on the weekends, like historical Philadelphia, Penn's Landing, Museums, etc. I've met a lot of people at Drexel from many different places, whether it be California or New York or Canada, or the UK, and it's honestly become home to me. The diversity of this school makes me feel so comfortable and has taught me so much about other people and cultures which to me feels even greater than academics. The academics are also amazing and the professors I've had so far are very nice and want to see students succeed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls are not that good. I know they're currently in the process of upgrading their dining halls but it's honestly one of the worst parts about Drexel besides the extremely high tuition.

WHAT I LIKED

I am only a freshman, but so far I am enjoying my time at Drexel. Most of the professors are wonderful and very knowledgeable in their fields. All freshmen are required to get a meal plan, but it is very expensive and the food is nasty and many times undercooked. The social scene here is not great, but if you run in the right circles it isn't too bad. The campus is okay, I like being in the city so I personally do not mind the bland buildings too much.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Food is bad. The social scene is mediocre.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

Great faculty

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The quarter system is stressful
