4 College Senior

Academics: Fabulous-- but we need more film study opportunities.

5 College Senior

Academics: Incredible professors, 90% of whom holding the highest degree available in their respective fields.

4 College Senior

Majors: Anyone can join any major without an audition. It makes the curriculum truly open.

4 College Senior

Majors: There are all kinds of opportunities for theatre students. I wish there was more faculty involvement even, but I like the independence it instills in the students.

3 College Senior

Athletics: school spirit is rather lame but I do think we have a great environment for intramural sports. Students get really into them.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is exceptional especially when it comes to the Soccer and Lacrosse teams.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Drew is a division III school, so there is not much emphasis on Athletics and their facilities. That said, however, I think the athletic facilities are sufficient for both the athletes and the rest of the student body.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Drew exhibits typical Jersey weather (i.e. very cold in the winter and very hot in the spring and summer)

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of ways to get around at Drew: there is a train five minutes away, an airport that is a 25 minute drive way, and plenty of friends to make that have cars.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many students at Drew that come from more privileged backgrounds, and so many students come off as most concerned about superficial things such as clothes and how much money they can show off.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: At Drew University, I really don't have much to worry about safety wise. Drew is safe, small, gated campus in a very safe town with a relatively low incidence of crime.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is not any Greek life at Drew University.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Though there is whole town square just minutes away, there is not much variety and not student discounts that I'm aware of exist. Late-night options (the time most students are seeking food) are especially lacking.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I'm a double major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Spanish. The opportunities and enrichment offered in both majors are amazing. The research opportunities are endless in the sciences which is allowed by Drew's unique RISE program and DSSI program.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Drew has an excellent faculty and academic rigor. The undergraduate school has equipment and opportunities that some graduate schools don't even have.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Drew does not have Greek life and is very small. So, the party life/nightlife is nothing too crazy.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Aside from the phone service, Drew's technology is up-to-date and reliable.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Drew is very munificent when it comes to financial aid. Even though Drew is one of the most expensive institutions in the nation, the financial aid makes Drew one of the most affordable schools for all economic backgrounds.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Drew has a small campus in a small town. However, Madison (in walking distance) has many eateries and shops. When it comes to feeling isolated, the train in town can get you into NYC in about 40 minutes for 22 dollars round trip.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are not many problems that arise from drug abuse on campus. However, the underage drinking policy is strictly enforced, and many freshmen find themselves getting written up for since they are targeted by public safety.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Drew has a culturally, sexually, and ethnically diverse student body.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health Services isn't all that helpful. It's New Jersey so there are fights almost every weekend. But assuming you avoid those you are usually very safe of campus.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Not super old and falling apart, but definitely not new.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: There is really nothing distinguishable about Drew.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Madison is a super rich suburb to New York. There is nothing helpful within Madison itself, and you really need a car to get around. Drew's campus is really small and self contained so if you don't have a car it's rare that you will get off campus which can be pretty miserable because its so small.
