It is apparent that our campus is undergoing several cosmetic changes. By now the development work we see is just another element of our campus, and we’ve all figured out how to maneuver our way through the construction to get to class on time.

Summertime scholastics at Drexel are shaping up to be more frustrating than normal. We’re not talking about the usual jealously we feel as our non-quarter system friends hit the beach or the sweltering heat that almost makes wearing a suit to co-op a violation of the Geneva convention. No, this summer students are being forced […]
