Drexel University

While your junior squash-player may be a bit too young (yet) to be thinking of applying to and/or going to college, it's not a bad I idea to start researching. One of the schools you might want to take a look at and consider is Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Drexel offers over 80 undergraduate majors and more than a dozen accelerated degree programs across its colleges and schools. Cooperative education allows students to apply what they've learned in the classroom to the real world, providing up to 18 months of paid experience. In addition to being the home of the Honors Program and the interdisciplinary Custom-Designed major, the Pennoni Honors College includes programs that serve the entire community, such as the Fellowships Office, the Great Works Symposium, and the Office of Undergraduate Research. 

Most departments at Drexel operate on a system of four 10-week quarters, creating a fast-paced and rigorous academic environment while allowing a balance of classroom and co-op experience. The undergraduate catalog provides detailed information on departments, majors, plans of study and University policies. Drexel Central works to inform and guide students through the financial aid process.

And of course, Drexel has both a men's and women's varsity squash program! The men are college team-ranked #8 in the country, while the women are ranked #7. The good news is that both the men's and women's squash-teams are coached by former world #1 squash-player, John White!
