3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The first semester has been rough especially after I realized I needed to change my major because I was unhappy with what I was doing. But, now that I have I am looking forward to next semester.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love everything about my school! I have had an absolutely amazing experience so far!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. It has a great liberal arts mindset and an awesome teaching staff in the architecture program. I love campus life and Greek life. The opportunities provided at Drury are endless and varied. Being part of clubs and interest groups definitely help to make the experience more enriching. There are many volunteer and leadership opportunities too. The campus is also beautiful

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would not chose a different school.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone that I have had the pleasure of meeting on campus have been fantastic. They are all so different and make everyday a new experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that the safety on campus is taken very seriously. We often learn in seminars or in online learning how to prevent sexual assault or other violent events. Because of this I feel extremely safe on campus.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek Life that I have experienced at Drury has been amazing. The chapters dont judge people on their appearances during recruiting but what is on the inside. It is really amazing to be apart of an organization that allows students to be themselves and be unique and add to the chapter

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As an athlete I appreciate the accessibility of the gym and the variety of students that come and join the team each year. Everyone is unique and the coaches and staff tend to their differences to make their athletic career enjoyable

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The convenience of down town restaurants allows for off campus eating and social exchanges between students.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The staff are great.They understand how difficult it is being a college student and dont try to put to many obligations on the students shoulders at once.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have been dealing with the financial aid review process and its been weeks since I have heard anything. Its annoying and causing a great deal of anxiety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The XC is ok. It isnt amazing but it is far better than the commons. The commons is so disgusting. In the Spring semester I have only gone 5 times...3 of those times was just to get cereal.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its pretty fantastic. In sunderland you get to have your own room while being able to communicate with other classmates easily. The privacy is amazing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most places offer you a student discount downtown. It is great! And there are plenty of places to eat within 5 minutes driving in any direction. Most restaurants are not terribly expensive, but that is not to say downtown does not have a few expensive places to eat. However there is a huge variety of mexican, chinese, italian, etc. food to try!

5 College Freshman

Administration: All of the officers just want you safe and as long as you do not lie to them about being drunk, they will not issue you a MIP. They are real sticklers about parking without a parking permit though. I think the strictness here is decent and I am grateful for their perspectives on everything.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are a lot of financial aid opportunities, and although I did not apply for anything other than a housing scholarship (which is great to have!) I had plenty of chances to. The reason I did not apply to any of the school's scholarships was because they conflicted with the tuition remission I have. It is sometimes difficult to pay for things since my parents are not helping me. I dislike that financial aid is applied to tuition first because I could have benefited from financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the parties that are worth going to are at the quad. 40's and Cheeseballs at Lambda Chi Alpha continues to be the best party I have ever been to period. Sigma Pi has a lot of great parties, and so does Kappa Alpha Order. (Although they are kind of rude so I avoid going there.) Sigma Nu is always on probation so they never have parties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The smoothies at the CX are always delicious and I love them. The commons food is usually pretty good, however sometimes it does have its hiccups where a certain dish will cause everybody to be sick that ate it. This has only happened twice since I have been there, and usually it is the thing that looks suspicious anyway so if you stick to what looks appetizing you will be fine.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms: The dorms are all very different and unique in their personalities, and I love that. Visiting my fellow friends that live in Wallace feels like they are in a completely different atmosphere than my Sunderland building. I love how each one has its own perks.

Cost: Drury's tuition is extremely expensive, so it is not the best thing. However there are so many opportunities to receive financial aid that pretty much anybody could afford it if they kept their grades up.

Convenience: Drury is close to downtown springfield so if you want to see a movie, go shopping, or eat some delicious food there is always something great to do not far away. You are never bored!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is pretty close to campus and the houses are pretty cool. Lots of good apartments too. There is always parking available.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Springfield has the best restaurants. Gailey's is the best for breakfast. Other great spots include Grad School, Bambino's, Aviary, and the food truck park which has a lot of cool places to eat. Best pizza is Brick Slice House.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They can be pretty strict with parking tickets, so be careful. Drury is a wet campus, so alcohol rules are pretty lenient

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Free parking permits. Almost always a spot in either the parking lots or on Benton. If a commuter, parallel parking is your friend.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's hit or miss. I've had good experiences with the commons though.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They literally don't let you live off-campus unless you have an exemption and they're impossible to get.
