College review by Lisa Bleich
Students at Drexel are no-nonsense, down-to-earth and thrive in a hands-on learning environment. They come for the co-op education and Drexel has been good at providing them work opportunities throughout their tenure. The campus is undergoing a building expansion, but overall it feels like Newark in the shadow of Manhattan.
There is a small field that has a very urban feel to it. There is not real central campus feel, but rather a city like feel, however a large percentage of students do live on campus. It is about one mile away from University of Pennsylvania, but worlds away from a cultural standpoint. Drexel does offer some excellent programs such as their business school, nursing, and its core of engineering. They also give generous merit based scholarships.
