Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors are great in this school. Actually, Drexel's location is very helpful to attend academic activities in other Universities, including UPenn, Temple. However, I hate this school Quarter orientated academic calendar. Maybe, it is good for bachelors who attend the Drexel's Co-op programs. But for graduated students, it is not well design. Other Universities set for graduate students have 7 days to 10 days break during the busy semester. I think this breaks helped the overwhelmed graduated students to have more time flexibility to adjust themselves. If you like a high rhythm or task-focused students, Drexel is good place for you. But If you want to do more creative study depending on your time flexibility, please look at Drexel academic calendar before you choose this school. Comparing to Drexel's high rhythm teaching activities, the administration of this school should be improved. Because administration is inefficient and complicated.

I loved my college. It was very easy and the teachers were also very great. They did their job very well and made the whole experience as easy as possible.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Drexel is a really good school, so be prepared to get challenged. Review you syllabi and make a schedule to keep up with the pretty face paced school year. If you don't prepare your self, you may fall behind. Also, register on time in order to get the classes you needs for completion of your degree. If ever you need to drop/add make sure you make the deadline. Some courses for majors are only offered certain times of the year. Meaning if you have a class scheduled for spring of this year, if missed the chance to register, you would wait a full year to be able to register. There are no exceptions.

Degree: History, Other
Graduation Year: 2011

I was enrolled in Drexel University's 7yr. BA/MD program and I left Drexel University College of Medicine after one year of medical school. Like any large institution, there were some teachers whose teaching I really benefited from and other teachers who probably couldn't pick me out of a lineup. Overall, however, I am pleased with the quality of my education. At first, i didn't realize the value of the education I received. But when I finally graduated in 2011 and was looking for jobs after dropping out of medical school, I realized my background in STEM was incredibly helpful in securing a high school biology teacher position. Now, as a PhD student in Urban Education at Temple University, my history and political science background has been useful in understanding my field - sociology of education. This fall, I will be going back to Drexel for my MS degree in economics and I'm looking forward to going back with a few years of work experience under my belt.

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2011

The online classes from Drexel Online helped me get my degree while still working a full time job. I would recommend it to anyone trying to work a job and still earn a degree at the same time. Now I have a great job working at a communications company that I wouldn't have been able to get without my Bachelor's.

Degree: Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The creative arts therapy department is part of the College of Health and Nursing Professionals, which is located in Center City, Philadelphia and so I rarely spent any time on the main campus, so if you are looking for a graduate degree experience where you feel connected to the school, this program may not be for you. However, the program itself is amazing and my experiences with the faculty, staff, and students were wonderful.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Drexel is by far the WORST university regarding loans or any type of advisement! Their business office is horrendous. They are never able to provide assistance. They read from a script and just blow you off day after day, month after month regarding loans, registration, finanacial aide etc. The advisement center is also horrible. They don't return emails and when you meet with someone they are clueless. This has by far been my most stressful experience of my life. I DO NOT recommend Drexel as an online school at all. Save yourself the hassle and attend somewhere that is organized and hires competent staff and that doesn't outsource!

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2015

I though the experience was average, Not much happening outside of the classroom in terms of workshops, meeting, networking etc. I thought the professors were fine, sometimes they could have taken their job more seriously.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

Most of the professors I had in the engineering and mathematics department were incredibly intelligent who cared about teaching. I learned a lot from these professors and feel like they were dedicated not only to research but also to educating students. There were a few professors, who unfortunately I had for multiple courses, who were clearly only interested in their research and not at all in teaching. The school itself has made great strides with bettering the campus and, as far as I know, has grown significantly since I left.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2010

Drexel was a great place to go for a technology focused degree for a couple reasons. Primarily the co-op system helped me gain job experience and exposure where I learned just as much, if not more than what was conveyed in the classroom. The chance to learn with other incredibly intelligent people pushed me to accomplish more than I had ever aspired too. Finally, the ability to live in the city of Philadelphia helped further culture me and gave me endless life altering experiences that made me who I am today.
