Student Life

The adage "all work and no play" doesn't apply to life on Drexel's campus. Drexel students have a challenging and rewarding academic calendar, which is why many of our undergraduates take full advantage of all the exciting activities that the University has to offer.

Whether you live on campus or choose to commute, you’ll want to get involved.  Drexel students can participate in more than 300 clubs and organizations. If you want to go Greek, rush one of our 25 nationally affliated Greek letter organizations. We don’t like to categorize our students — you have the freedom to choose your own college adventure.

Our University City neighborhood offers the feel of the self-contained college town with restaurants and shops nearby. And given our location just west of the heart of the city, you can explore everything Philadelphia has to offer.

There’s nothing like the Drexel experience — we invite you to see for yourself with our Virtual Tour. Drexel’s Virtual Tour will give you a glimpse of what life is like on campus.
