Student & Graduate Reviews

Jonathan Andrus - 12/18/2016
Degree: Science & Math
Graduation Year: 2013
"Studying engineering at Drexel University is on the most difficult and rewarding challenges one can task themselves with. You have to truly have a passion for understanding how the world works in order to succeed. But, should you find this description fits you, you'll have a wealth of opportunity to find a specific area of engineering that interests you and focus on it. I chose Drexel because of its reputation and Co-op program. The co-op program gave me 18 months of job experience with my B.S. Those 18 months gave me a chance to see my curriculum in action and choose specialization classes tailored to attract future employers in my desired field. My co-op experience made me realize I was less inclined to work with biomaterials and more interested in specialty alloys so I tailored my curriculum to match my interest. Yes, the 10 week quarters are arduous and it can be overwhelming at times, but in the end I felt it was all worth it. Myself and the majority of my classmates all had jobs lined up well before graduation day which was a great relief and allowed us to focus on completing our degrees. I would highly recommend Drexel University if you are up to the challenge."

Helen Nowotnik - 12/9/2016
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014
"The professors in the communications department are some of the best in the school. They are always available and a great support. The facilities unfortunately are not the best for the communications department. It may have changed after I left. I am happy with my education from Drexel."

Sarah Andersen - 11/27/2016
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015
"I attended the Elementary Education program at Drexel University. I earned my Bachelor's of Science and began my Master's in Global and International Education. This is an expensive school, but if you have the resources, the experience can be very rewarding. I was very involved during my undergraduate career and was able to make a lot of connections and learn a lot of real-world skills. After graduating I went into my field and was successful. I noticed that I was not where many of my peers were when I began teaching. I knew more than they did about child development and pedagogy. This leg up really helped me start out my career on the right path. I would recommend this program to students who are able to commit to 4 years of on-campus, intensive study and access to financial resources."

"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."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012
"Drexel University's 10-week quarter system was rigorous and prepared me well for the world world. Drexel University also boasts a co-operative education program that is mandatory for most graduate students. This program enables students to find internships in their potential career realms. I was even able to land a full-time position after graduation at the institution where I interned. Most of my classmates went out to find positions in our field of study. I would highly recommend Drexel University to any potential student."

Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2018
"I would definitely recommend Drexel University to any student looking for a fast paced college experience. The ten week quarters keep the classes moving quickly so everything you learn at Drexel University is relevant and important. Also, the Co-op experience provides students with an upper hand when joining the work force."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2008
"I graduated with my BSN from Drexel University in 2008, but am currently enrolled at Drexel University Online for my MSN in nursing education! My career in nursing has been so fulfilling that I am ready to share that with other students now. This is why I chose to re-enroll!"

Miguel Montes - 8/22/2016
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2018
"As a Physics student attending a Physics and Engineering focused university, I could not have felt more comfortable and welcomed in my classes as well as among my peers. Since the Physics program is somewhat exclusive, every year there are only around 15 Freshman enrolled as Physics majors, the professors have plenty of time to attend to their students, as well as get to know them on a level that most efficiently facilitates learning and advancement. I would recommend Drexel University to anyone looking for a degree in Physics or Engineering. There is also a rather large business program with seemingly endless resources, but I have not experienced them first-hand so would not be an incredibly reliable source."

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011
"The Bachelor's Biomedical Engineering program at Drexel University was well developed. It incorporated rigorous academic coursework with both individual and team projects. It also allowed for numerous opportunities to get experience in research, through internships/coop, and also in federally funded programs."
