Last week Penn was named one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world by Buzzfeed readers. Now, two more area universities are being spotlighted nationally.
The median mid-career salary for Drexel graduates, with mid-career meaning 10 years of experience, is $92,000. This, combined with Drexel's co-op program, in which students work in the real world for 6 months during class, and Drexel's location (Business Insider said the university was a 10-minute walk to Center City; it's more like 30, but you get the point) propelled the university to snag the 36th underrated colleges spot.
Widener, even with a lower median mid-career salary of $86,300, was ranked 10th most underrated university. Its proximity to the city and civic engagement opportunities helped the Chester school earn its place.
