About Drexel University
For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the Drexel University campus, eat in the same dining hall as its students and campers ages 13+ can even stay overnight. Digital Media Academy selected Drexel not only because of its impeccable reputation as a liberal arts college, but also because of its superior campus location in historic downtown Philadelphia.
Students will thrive on the energy of being on a premier research-university campus that’s located within one of the nation’s busiest and most historic cities. See the URBN Center, home of the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design. Hang out at the Drexel Recreation Center, or get some exercise on the Vidas Athletic Field or at the beach volleyball courts at Buckley Green.
