Six month co-op three times throughout the five year program. Fantastic professors. Concentration is your desired area in the fifth year. State of the art technology in every lab. Plenty of opportunities to get help if needed and to work with the TAs and professors. Regular scheduled mixers and networking events. All students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities.

Drexel is not a traditional college campus. In many ways the physical campus is integrated so seamlessly with the city of Philadelphia that you don't actually have that "campus" feeling. Most students like to work hard and play hard. Everyone is very career and goal oriented. The party scene is pretty limited if you're not in Greek life, but everyone takes advantage of Philly's endless supply of bars when they want to cut loose. There is practically no school spirit. The student body feels very diverse.

The dorms are acceptable but not great. We have one dining hall and it's awful. The quality of labs, classroom and work space varies drastically from building to building. In recent years they've done a better job at creating on campus lounges/areas to sit and do homework, but finding a place to relax between classes can still be tough. The library is awful and gross. The recreation center, especially the climbing wall, is really awesome.
