Student Life

Campus life

Drexel University's lively urban campus is located in one of America's most exciting cities — Philadelphia. In a world-class city for business, art, and education, Philadelphia's skyscrapers are coupled with a blend of distinct and culturally diverse neighborhoods, creating a unique metropolitan yet intimate urban experience.

Surrounded by tree-lined residential blocks just minutes away from Philadelphia's downtown Center City district, Drexel makes its home in the neighborhood of University City. Comprised of five additional universities and dotted by coffee shops, restaurants, shops, and farmers markets, University City is just one of the many reasons Philadelphia makes an ideal place for students.

Sports facilities

Drexel Athletics are a big part of campus culture. Each year, more than 9,000 students participate in club or intramural sports. The list of athletic opportunities is extensive, including everything from ultimate frisbee and track to rugby and water polo. The number of options available and the level of participation are limited only by the interest of each student.

Student clubs

Drexel students have the best of all worlds — a booming campus culture located in the heart of one of America's great cities. There's no one type of Drexel student and the University's clubs and activities reflect its diversity. There's something (or probably two or three "somethings") for everyone. The Office of Campus Activities recognizes more than 350 student organizations.

During my 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester things were a bit rough. There were many days when I wanted to give up, but I did not. The only issue I had at the university was my advisor. Numerous times I was left alone to decide which classes I needed to take on my own. She was never in place to provide proper advisement. This lead to me taking classes I did not need. Overall, I...
