Tips for your future co-op search
Drexel University’s co-op program is a unique and exciting perk about studying at this institution. For a period of six months, you can try a profession to find out how well it fits you based on what you’ve learned in classes up to then, as well as gain general work experience.

Real world: Drexel edition
A couple of other publications on campus have waxed poetically about graduation, saying that it’s time for seniors to leave the comfort and security of college life, and venture out into “the real world.” You’ve now concluded your “academic career” and now it’s time to leave behind your cushy campus life where you were shielded from the responsibilities of adulthood.

Drexel students help create personalized news app for Philadelphia area readers
Over the past year, Drexel students have been collaborating with the Philadelphia Media Network to develop an innovative iPhone application called Follow Philly, which is set for release in early 2016.

Follow Philly aims to offer PMN content in a different way than it is offered now, especially to millennials, and change how PMN news currently can only be obtained through individual newspaper outlets.
