Drew University Reviews
I have met so many life long friends here - I could not be happier.
I am also a student athlete and this experience is something I always dreamed of!
The Forest, as Drew is nick named, is beautiful and quiet. I took one look and fell in love. I would highly recommend this University to undergraduates looking for a quality educaiton and experience.
Drew didn't work for me, but there a few types of people that like it here: people here for the great financial aid, athletes, international students, hippies/socialists. Otherwise, don't come here, there's nothing for you.
