You'll find a very limited array of girls at this particular institution. The following adjectives and phrases best describe the girls at Drew: moderately intelligent, nerdy/geeky, thoroughly uninteresting, average, overly dramatic, stuck-up, and relatively friendly. In all honesty, the girls are average in terms of appearance. Most of the girls here are taken, while the others are either too uninterested or emotionally unstable to develop and pursue a relationship.

In my purely heterosexual opinion, the male population isn't any better. A vast majority of the guys at Drew are you're typical, ance-ridden, overly hormonal jocks, while the remainder of the male population are either gay or nerdy. If you're not really into drama/musical theatre or Division III sports, this is not the right university for you!

Great Academics, Not So Great Other Stuff – this school is academically amazing. The professors are amazing and challenge every student. However there are flaws in this institution. the food is horrible, and facilities (in charge of maintaining the buildings) take forever to fix anything. In the winter, if you are in the freshman dorms, you may freeze, and the spring feels like you're in the center of the earth. Social life is great there are tons of groups, we even have a quidditch team! Study abroad and internships are plenty.

Quaint Town of Madison – Central Madison, despite being a bit pricey, is a beautiful town to be in. Only 20 miles from New York City, its train station can get you there in no time. There are many restaurants to choose from, if any college student wants to escape from the monotonous campus food. There is a small movie theater and little to do recreation wise. However, Short Hills mall is 5 minutes away, and Madison's neighboring towns have lots to offer, like Drew University!
