4 College Senior

Academics: It's hard because it's a private school but there are small classrooms

5 College Junior

Academics: I love Drury University! The teachers are excellent and truly care about the education of their students. The work load is just right, and teachers help students to comprehend material. Most students and faculty and very friendly and willing to offer a helping hand.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my program at Drury. Instructors make sure students learn to feel comfortable and confident in the classroom. Education majors are well developed and equipped with great knowledge and skill on how to be a wonderful educator. Not only do instructors teach this, but they model it as well! I would never wish to be at any other school!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics, specifically in the sciences, are challenging, exciting, and top-notch! Our science professors are the best - they care about our learning, make the material interesting, and provide individual attention to everyone's well-being and future career plans.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Like I said above, our science department is amazing. It's very challenging, but one truly learns a lot and feels more confident in his scientific skill set after surviving this program.
