College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never attempted to live off campus, because you have to apply and be at least 21 years old to be considered. I do not know anything about off campus housing.

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.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I did not live on campus. However, based on what I know 3-4 stars would be a good guess.

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.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I'm pretty sure this city literally has the most restaurants per capita than nearly any other place in the US. You will never run out of places to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Most professors will basically leave you alone, but they know your name and your face so if you don't show up you'll know.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They don't really help you get many scholarships that aren't affiliated with the college itself.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have no idea, I hardly ever go to parties. I hear the quad is wild though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The commons doesn't know how to use spices apparently, and the options can get pretty repetitive. Everything's edible, at least--as long as you don't have a diary allergy.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Many of the buildings don't have proper insulation and you have to have a/c on all the time to get it a reasonable temperature. The cheapest buildings aren't comparable at all to many of the higher level options. A lot of buildings don't have their own washer and dryer so you have to walk across campus with your laundry if you don't have a friend near who can let you use theirs.

4 College Senior

Majors: Great science program, really prepared me to go on.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I only pay two hundred dollars for my current off campus house

5 College Senior

Scholarships: I actually got paid to go to college here because of all the scholarships I received.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This is the best school in the Midwest and have an outstanding reputation

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority but we do not have any houses. It's great
