4 College Sophomore

Academics: Very easy to work with

4 College Freshman

Academics: Everything about the academics is great. The only issue I have is the cost of attendance.

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).

4 College Senior

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

5 College Sophomore

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.
