Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel University CNHP, while expensive, is most definitely a beneficial program that any future nursing student should consider. With access to world class facilities and hospitals, the nursing students are truly exposed to sick, complex patients that will help them grow in their practice before graduation.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

As far as I could tell, the Biomed graduate program here is a scam. The "professors" just dump most of the work on their TA's, who are usually also your classmates in other courses. A graduate level course took three weeks to get to the fact that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Again, this was a graduate level course! Most courses also "meet" with undergrads, which really means that it's an undergrad course that they just stuff graduate students in. Do you enjoy group projects and presentations? Because you're going to do them in just about every class. This way the lazy professors doesn't have to do ANYTHING, the students can teach each other! Just what I wanted, to pay absurd amounts of money to have some undergrads teach me basic, basic info. Incorrectly. I have no idea what they're teaching the undergrads but it sure isn't biology or engineering. Research opportunities are extremely limited as well, don't believe their lies. I wish I could trade my MS degree in for food stamps. Please don't make the same mistake I did.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I do not recomend the MSN progam. The professors are not helpful. The advisors are a joke. The program is needlessly difficut assignment are due the due date without exceptions even in the event of an emergency. Grading is unpredictable and unattainable at times. They do not give A's, per the syllabus, and passing is an 85 or above. That is a very small window to base your career and your future on. The program is not geared towards working adults.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Terrible school. Several unforeseen charges and difficulties. There were way too many errors made by the school I ended up paying the price for. Anytime I talked to someone on the phone they were very rude and did not seem to know how to do their job. Financial aid was terrible. Unless you have about $65,000 dollars free money, you'll have to take out several loans. Think twice before you commit. I would not recommend this school. They claim not to charge you tuition while you go out on Co-op however I was charged the full amount. There are so many other schools with great programs and opportunities. THINK BEFORE YOU COMMIT!!! Even now, as a student who withdrew, I am still paying for the mistakes the university made.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2005

Great institution with quality education. The Coop program is top notch. I came to this school and was employed throughout my years from undergrad to graduate school. Small size classes and great professors.The Quarter system is fast paced and great if you are ready to work and finish school quickly. From 2000 to 2005 I have already got my bachelor and Masters degrees. it is expensive ,but it is a private institution. The financial Aid office is awesome. They will work with you throughout your program. This school will one day be among the top notch private university to the likes of Brown and Stanford. I have no regrets attending Drexel. Go Dragon!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009

Drexel's rigorous coursework, co-op program, and location make it a great option for any student. In addition to being challenged academically, I was provided career assistance that has played a key role in the work that I do today. I would encourage every prospective student to think realistically, and strategically about the financial expectations for attending; Drexel is not cheap!

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2008

I have no regrets, having chosen Drexel University for my undergraduate studies. Beyond academics, Ive learned self-advocacy, agency, how to collaborate, and how learn from failures. Drexel has great research- and industry-experienced instructors, rigorous coursework with real world applications, relevant majors and program offerings that parallel workforce trends, and career development opportunities alongside cooperative learning experiences (whereas students can graduate with up to 1.5 years of work experience). Additionally, Drexel is in the heart of Philadelphia, rich with great museums, job opportunities, shopping, food, and culture.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2016

If I had to give one piece of advice to a student about to graduate high school, I would tell them to attend Drexel University. Drexel has given me a unique learning experience that has set me apart in the job market. I enrolled in the 5 year, 3 co-op program and it was the best decision I could've made. By the time that I graduated, I had almost 2 years of work experience under my belt in 3 different industries. I had experience working with different software programs and acquired skills that could only be learned on the job. I received a job offer before I even graduated college with a company I co-oped with. The tuition may seem intimidating, but do not let that deter you from applying! I ended up getting an academic scholarship that paid for half of my tuition. In the long run, it is worth it.

Degree: Health and Medical Administrative Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

Drexel's quarter system prepares young professionals with time management skills and critical thinking. I think the curriculum was rigorous but effective. Also, anyone who attends Drexel should really attempt to take advantage of the coop program, steinbright career development services, and the study abroad program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel University is located in Philadelphia, PA. It is close to several businesses and hospital networks, which allow them to work together to form the Cooperative Education program. Students are given the opportunity to choose between a 5 or 4 year program. Both include the coop program, which allows students to leave with at least six months of work experience in their desired field. Drexel follows a quarter system, which makes their programs rigorous but also allows students the option to maximize their workload and graduate early with their flexible schedules. Also, the social life is great. Students can join a variety of student organizations from Greek Life, Athletics, and Academic organizations. I enjoyed my three years at Drexel and I would recommend this University to everyone else.
