You're never far from the action!

    My favorite part about Drexel is that it is right in the middle of so much city life.

    What I like the most about Drexel, and Philly as a whole, is that it never gets boring. Whenever there is downtime, my friends and I are almost always at the DAC, Race Lawn, or getting something to eat around campus. Even if those things got repetitive, Philly gives you such a nice city vibe so sometimes we would venture into center city for the night.

The city never sleeps and it is full of ambitious and motivated individuals. I would not want to be anywhere else.

That is Drexel. That is Philadelphia.

  • Brandon Leiva

    Hometown: Ocean Township, New Jersey
    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    Philly is like a smaller, slower version of New York City! Everything is within walking distance, it's so easy to get around. Since the campus is right next to the heart of Philadelphia there's always something to do at all hours of the day. And I can't forget about the quarter system. It makes classes 10 weeks instead of 5 months, which helps keep students engaged during class!

  • Dylan Luong

    Hometown: Lancaster, PA
    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    What I like best about Drexel and the City of Philadelphia is that it's a nice change of scenery from where I was raised. The suburbs of Lancaster, PA is very calming and tranquil versus the hustle-and-bustle of a Philly lifestyle. It's been really nice to experience both contrasts. Coming from an area where driving is an essential, I've found it very enjoyable to be able to walk anywhere I want to go in Philly. Drexel's campus is small enough where I feel like everything I would want is at my disposal. That accessibility is something that I wouldn't get otherwise back home, so that's why I've grown to love Philly so much.
