Drury is such a personal experience. The Professors and staff really care about the student's needs. I would definitely choose Drury again and again. The only downside is the cost. I am struggling to find ways to pay for it.

I came from a community college that knew very little about who I was and/or who I wanted to be, but Drury University not only knows who I am they are constantly encouraging, and guiding me to become who I aspire to be.

Drury has a lot to over their students. It is too expensive and they need to restructure their refund system to a prorated system.
