Well I've visited Drexel twice, each during the day, and I loved the city environment. BUT I've been researching about University City, UPenn, and Drexel; and I've been hearing that the campus and area really change by night. Is this completely true? Supposedly 30th Street is a really bad place to be walking around at night.
I also heard a statistic (on another CC thread) that an average of 1 student is murdered per year on the UPenn campus? How much danger will I be in if I go to Drexel? Are all these rumors true, or are they exaggerations coming from unexposed and/or stupid people?
I've had experience on my own in one of my state's most unsafe cities at a summer program, and I consider myself capable of living on an urban campus. So hopefully I won't be too horrified if I do choose Drexel :)
Thanks I REALLY appreciate any response. At this point it will make or break my Drexel decision :)
