Life at Drexel rarely slows down. For many students, the fast pace and nature of life at Drexel can present some tough choices and tradeoffs. How do you pursue all of your interests and fulfill major requirements? How can you possibly discover and take advantage of all of the opportunities Drexel has to offer?  Most importantly, how do you leave Drexel feeling satisfied?  


Design Your Drexel is a half-day workshop that helps students navigate these common challenges by providing the tools and opportunity to make deliberate, informed choices about how to integrate pieces of their Drexel education – curriculum, co-op, extracurricular activities – into a roadmap for making the most of their time at Drexel.

Participants will engage in group activities, workshops, facilitated discussions and guided reflection. Topics covered include some of the most frequently cited challenges of high achieving students such as: finding balance, engaging strategically, managing stress and self-care, building and maintaining relationships, and more. By the end of the day, you will have a stronger foundation and tools to design a college experience that better aligns with who you are and what you hope to get out of your time at Drexel.

  • Be currently enrolled as a full-time student
