If Drexel University truly supports diversity, then why is it that they only offer specific dance troupes their own practice space?

An out-of-class experience
With Drexel’s fast-paced terms, spring break is a way to slow down and de-stress (besides, of course, final grades also being released). While some people plan vacations or choose to stay home and hibernate, there is also the option of Alternative Spring Break.

My new family at Millennium Hall
Standing tall at 17 floors with its curvy structure and shiny appearance, most people are in awe when they see Millennium Hall at first glance. I was definitely excited to be living there for my freshman year. The exterior design of the building makes it look far more superior to the other buildings, and what’s inside makes it even better. I advise all freshman looking to truly experience dorm life to give Millennium a chance.

Integration over gentrification
As Drexel once again makes a concerted effort to expand pieces of the campus, pushing ever northward (and westward), it is useful to not only look at the direct causes of such undertakings like Summit, but also analyse the indirect impact on the surrounding area. The keyword to this new form of urban sprawl is, of course, gentrification, a word that inspires many different feelings in many different people. For some it is a beacon of light that they will soon be able to live safely and peacefully in a neighborhood where they are but a few blocks from all of the trendy stores. For others though, the long-time residents of this historic area, the new buildings and interest herald a more foreboding future.
