4 College Student

Greek Life: The student percentage of Greeks being on campus is that 30% of students are Greek. Greeks run multiple fundraisers for Drury along with their organization charities. Almost every department has students in Greek life. The average GPA for Greeks on campus is 3.5 and Greeks are very well respected by non-Greeks and faculty. Housing is that the fraternities have houses and the girls have meeting suites.

4 College Student

Athletics: Students are constantly invited and do attend school sports. Students also are very spirited when cheering and/or showing their school spirit.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: My school has only about 2,500 students a 14:1 student teacher ratio and the teachers actually care. They invite us to their houses, meet outside of class time with us to do activities, and sometimes take class time and turn it into a learning environment doing field trips or just going outside. They allow us to call or email them constantly even when we are panicking and need help. And all of which they do willingly. And if we need time outside of class and their office hours they will put time aside for us. The professors truly care about students, their opinions and how they are feeling. Which is something that should be important at any academic university.

Party Scene: Drury is a wet campus, so generally parties in apartments or in fraternity houses are the main nightlife at school. On Thursdays, downtown Springfield has cheap college nights at bars. Students must find their own designated drivers if they want to go. It's pretty easy to obtain bracelets from the promoters to buy from the bars and clubs. The school does not have transportation at all, but we do have agreements with cab companies to get us safely from a place back to school. It's really easy to have fun at Drury parties, but they're rarely insane or ridiculously huge.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is usually something small happening every Friday night, but about once every 1 and a half months a big party happens at a frat house on Friday for a special occasion. The party scene has a positive impact, it's not intimidating, and you can go sober. Parties are fun, and there are suite parties in the frat houses, if you know people who live there. LCA has a huge party every fall called 40s and cheeseballs that is widely attended by Greeks and non-Greeks alike. F* Finals Friday (F^3) is a huge party at all the frat houses at the end of each semester. Everybody goes to that and it's between all the 4 houses. Internationals throw great parties too. There are also some parties at the baseball or swimmers' houses but only select people go if they know the players.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is every once in a while break-ins to cars, but generally I feel very safe. Drury Security constantly patrols all around campus and the CAs also contribute to a safe feel all around campus. We also have Green Dot training about power based personal violence, so I feel safe from other students. We have a 24/7 emergency security line too. We have lighting all over campus and sidewalks. Drury works with the Springfield police too to keep campus safe and patrolled.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are all really great, with very few exceptions. At least the ones who aren't that great are only not great at teaching certain types of learners; they are passionate and knowledgeable about their subject. They always know what they're talking about, it's just sometimes they aren't that great at communicating it. Those are very rare cases. Generally, my learning is exceptional. The curriculum makes sense from a liberal arts standpoint. Recently (fall 2015) they just changed the requirements for G-tags, and eliminated them, so we only need the Drury Foundations and core requirements. This makes it easier for a student to complete their required/gen eds. The registration process for classes is fair for each grade level, which seniors prioritized first then down from there. The workload is very reasonable for most majors, but intensive for architecture and science (biochem, biopsychology, pre-med). This is expected though, as they are intense majors. Students can form study groups on their own, but sometimes subject departments host a study group for that area. Drury is renowned for its business school. We also have a great 5 year architecture program where students can earn a masters of architecture (M.Arch).

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Drury University and the way it prepares me with a liberal arts education. I feel very diversified in my education, with a variety of backgrounds in politics, math, language, ethics, social sciences, etc. My professors have a network of internship companies for architecture firms that they can connect students with to get that required engaged learning experience. There are some on-campus jobs, and they usually work pretty well with students and their schedules. The career center/services and tutoring on campus are helpful. We have counselors who you can talk to. Choosing a good academic advisor is important. They can really help you with your classes once you know your major.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Much of the campus attends varsity basketball games. We have a lot of international students recruited to play tennis and swim. We do really well, but it's only Division II, so it's not as mainstream. We also don't have a football team, so the game days aren't as big, just in our O'Reilly basketball center. There is a lot of fan support and school spirit for the Panthers. We have a club called the Fanthers who organized the students in audience. We have good athletic facilities.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am happy with my choice of school

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Drury has small classes, which I love. The teachers are very attentive to each student, and the small class size makes the classroom very intimate.
