Drexel University is a private, nonsectarian coeducational university, founded in 1891 by financier and philanthropist Anthony J. Drexel.
Drexel's 60-acre University City Main Campus is located in the University City district of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, about a 10-minute walk from Center City, Philadelphia's downtown neighborhood.
Students in the College of Nursing and Health Professions and the School of Public Health attend class at our Center City Hahnemann Campus, located in the heart of the city.
The Drexel University College of Medicine is located at our Queen Lane Medical Campus in East Falls, a largely residential section of Philadelphia that's only 15 minutes from the attractions of Center City.
13,197 undergraduates 6,142 graduate and professional students
Students come from 48 U.S. states and 103 foreign countries. Six percent of undergraduates and 11 percent of graduate students are international students.
Approximately 95 percent of Drexel's full-time faculty members hold a PhD or the highest degree in their field. Many of the Engineering faculty members are registered professional engineers. As a matter of policy, faculty members engaged in research and graduate teaching are also required to teach at the undergraduate level. Thus, the undergraduate student benefits from the research activities of the faculty. Specially selected faculty members serve as advisors for freshmen. The student to faculty ratio is 9 to 1.
