    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    The synergy of atmosphere, culture, and history in and about Philly and the Drexel area allow it to be a place unlike any other in the world. Simply walking through the streets you can feel a different buzz in the air that you don't often feel in other places. When I'm on campus I can feel the excitement and hear the passion in every students' voice. Something special is starting at Drexel and in Philadelphia, something entrepreneurial, something culturally inclusive, and something new. Projects such as Schulkyll Yards and the recruitment of Amazon to Philadelphia bring me such inspiration and emotion because it shows me that something truly is about to physically change in Philadelphia and Drexel, something that I and every other student in this area have a chance to be a part of.

    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    Philly is a very happening place, it's a very diverse city and there is always something to explore and do. One of the best things that I like about the city is the combination of historic and modern touch which makes it different. There are some old places as well as tall skyscrapers which gives it a different look. There are places such as: Penn's Landing, Reading Terminal Market, Liberty Bell, Italian market, Art Museum that one could explore. Being so near to the Center of Philadelphia, Drexel offers countless opportunities to the students. Even though Drexel quarter system is very fast, there are a lot of on campus events which makes Drexel a very happening place. Indeed, I fell that truly Philadelphia is the city of 'Brotherly Love'.

Both Philly and Drexel truly embody the spirit of brotherly love which makes it such a special place to call a second home!

    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    Coming from the west coast, Philadelphia was definitely alien to me. One thing I have come to like about Drexel is the sunrise view along the Schuylkill River Trail. On a morning run, I find that it is a perfect time to reflect and refocus on the things that are to come.

    The diversity surrounding Philadelphia and Drexel University. I love the people and the welcoming atmosphere, especially when I first arrived to the city of Philadelphia since I come from a very different environment coming from Florida. The students here are from all over the world, and we receive the opportunity to get to know them including their story and passion for being here. Side note: the music scene here in Philly is also incredible.

  • Raj Patel

    Hometown: Washington Township, New Jersey
    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    Personally I like Philly due to its environment. I like walking outside and just seeing skyscrapers all around you and buildings that are more than two stories high. Coming from the suburbs this was a big change. I believe everyone in their life has that period of time where they are having a great time living in the city and for me it is now while I'm in college. I have always been a Philly fan and thats mostly due to the sport teams but now living in the city it has become much more. I see the city now as a beacon of opportunity. A place of endless opportunities and all I have to do is go get them. Drexel has been amazing so far. Drexel's a perfect mix of the city life and college life. It's not exactly center city which is convenient and has nature. Over here on 33rd it's a perfect mix of not being too crowded and still giving you the city vibes. Drexel's location is also very good for transportation with 33rd street station and 34th street station which can take you to anywhere you want to go. Drexel also offers so many student clubs and organizations going from Greek Life to Academic clubs which all make the college experience that much better. All in all I love being here at Drexel University in the city of Philadelphia.

    The things that I like the most about Drexel/Philly are: - I love the campus location. It's walking distance to center city and many other cool places which is great for students who do not have a car. - I love Drexel's gym in the DAC. You always find friends working out at the gym no matter what time of the day you go. - I'm part of the Drexel Squash Club Team. This is a really great organization for all level of players. We have beginners and advanced players. It's a nice way to socialize with new people on campus sharing same interests. - I find Philly to be a great city because it gives me the vibe of a big city but at the same its not really crowded unlike other big cities like New York.

    Drexel is the ideal balance I was looking for between a college campus environment and the city life. Academically, the course work is geared towards experience-based learning which enhances the interest of students.

My experience thus far has been one of great memories within the Drexel community, especially LeBow.

  • Danielle Senour

    Hometown: North Wales, Pennsylvania
    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    The best part about Drexel is being in such a central part of the city. Drexel has its own secluded campus feel but you have access to all of the opportunities available in the city. Considering that most things are walking distance (center city, the river, the parkway), there is always so much to do on campus. Lastly, the city provides so many more opportunities in general, one of which being more benefits for co-op.

    Hometown: Royersford PA
    What do you like best about Drexel/Philly:
    I love Philly because of the uniqueness in culture and location of each neighborhood. Every section of the city has something different to offer, making it a very diverse and welcoming environment. After going to school in Philly for 12 years, I can say I am still finding new things to do and places to explore in the city. I especially love Drexel's location in University City because it is a continuously growing area where college students are constantly being exposed to amazing opportunities. I love being in Lebow because there are always new things to experience and people to meet. This year alone I have already participated in case competitions, obtained life-long friends, and made important connections with faculty members and peer mentors. I think this is what makes Drexel and Philadelphia so amazing, because no matter where you're from or what your interests are, there is something here for everyone.
