About Drexel University
Founded in 1891 by Philadelphia financier and philanthropist Anthony J. Drexel, The Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry became Drexel University in 1970. Today, Drexel is Philadelphia's technological university. And it continues to move up the rankings as one of the best national doctoral universities, Drexel has once again been ranked as one of the best national doctoral universities by U.S. News & World Report.
The University is located on 50 acres within walking distance of Center City Philadelphia. The campus includes 25 academic buildings, eight residence halls and four outdoor recreation fields. Ten fraternity and sorority houses, as well as other off-campus housing, are located adjacent to campus in the historic Powelton Village section of University City. An 18-acre outdoor athletic complex, with two lighted artificial turf fields, nine tennis courts and a softball field, is located just west of Powelton Village.
One of the trademarks of a Drexel education, since its establishment in 1919, has been the school’s co-operative education program which gives students a chance to work in the “real world” as part of their college education. The only mandatory co-opera...tive education program in Pennsylvania and one of three in the United States, Drexel's experiential learning program is among the nation's oldest and largest. More than 4,500 Drexel students are placed with 1,500 employer organizations in the business, government, health care industry and education sectors in 42 states and 20 international locations to fulfill their co-op requirements.
