I love Drew University! It is a small school and is beautiful! I have met their soccer team and really love them and the coach is great!
Drew University is an excellent small campus that welcomes everyone. The inclusion by faculty who know your name in a class and care about each students success is the best. Academics are challenging and give you great problem solving and critical thinking skills. Campus social life is excellent people are really easy to talk to. There are party's if that's your thing, but no one forces anyone to attend. The food at Drew is average campus food, there is always a wide selection, but also room for improvement especially on the weekends. Walking around campus I always feel safe and not threatened, public safety is always driving around. But if someone tried to threaten campus I don't know public safety could stop it because the only time a guard is on duty is when the main and back campus gates are closed. The guard is supposed to ask where you are going, most do, but there is one lady that doesn't care if you stop.
One of the best features that Drew has to offer is its small student to faculty ratio and the bond you form with your professors is something that's a rarity these days. As far as campus life goes, there's a sense of community which is very welcoming, especially to those living away from home for the first time.

The college is very good, it is small so there are not a lot of people but, you need a car to go to places.
The staff explained everything very well. The student tour guide was well informed, professional and friendly. The campus is small and cozy.
I really love studying at Drew. It fits with me so well academic-wise. The professors are amazing and really passionate about their jobs, which helps me to do better in my classes.
The clubs, however, aren't as great as they could be. There doesn't seem to be many clubs that help the students to become more involved and friendly with each other.
Have my career due to my on-campus job at Drew. Experienced dedicated staff and faculty, which more than made up for the lackluster student-body and campus life.
its an amazing school, where everybody knows everyone. It has a wonderful campus full of vegetation and lots of paths to walk and just hang out.
Drew is an excellent college. I enjoyed spending four years at Drew. I can't speak for anyone else, but my experience there was memorable, challenging and life enhancing. I recommend Drew for studious applicants who are looking for a small intimate setting to spend four years.
Drew is a beautiful campus. However the surrounding town is quite small and not much to do there. Not your typical college town. New York is only about 45 min by train. So far I've been very happy with my classes and teachers and like the small class sizes. It is very expensive to go here though and they don't seem that generous with financial aid. So I hope it will all pay off in the end.
Drew University is what you make of it. There are plenty of academic and professional opportunities here but you need to take advantage of them as soon as you get on campus and not wait until later. Drew has great professors and the academics are good. The campus is beautiful and it's very serene. It's often quiet on the weekends but with a great group of friends then you should be fine.
Drew is a great university with a lot of opportunities for graduate school and jobs, however, you need to take advantage of them early on and not wait until last minute. Drew is quiet and serene, which is good but at times it can be too quiet. It can be very fun with a great group of friends at your side. Drew University is what you make of it, if you want it to be a great experience, get involved and simple take advantage of all academic and professional opportunities early on.
If the academics (especially the Theater Department) were not as amazing as they are, i would have transferred. The food is slop, the dorms are terrible, the parties are lame, the clubs do nothing, and public safety is a joke. Not a fun safe place to spend your 4 years.
Girls, be aware that this college does not take rape or sexual assault seriously. They have let multiple people who have several charges against them for rape and sexual assault slide by with little to no repercussions. They are more concerned with stopping a party with music that is too loud than sending rapists to jail.
This school couldnt care less about the well being of the student body.
If you plan to go to Drew, be a commuter and save yourself the over priced room+board and food plan money and your sanity.
10/10 would not recommend.
The coursework isn't as crazy as people said it would be, but it does keep me busy, focused, and working hard. Really, the only issue is that when I don't have work, I have nothing to do.
An exceptional university on the rise, with dedicated professors, a progressive, intelligent and effective administration and top notch facilities.
Most of the Biology and Chemistry departments as well as majors make you feel as if you are not welcome. They are arrogant. There is rarely anything to do. On the slim chance there is, about 5 people show up...? This school is money hungry they will start out with giving you financial aid but slowly take it away each semester you stay........... This school has an extremely small population. Food isn't good. I'm transferring. I'm telling you this so you don't make the same mistake. Run.
Words cannot describe what this school has done for me. I have read many reviews that seem to give it a bad rap simply because of it's size. YES it is quiet on the quad sometimes, as only about 1,500 undergrads attend the school. YES it would be lovely to pass a new stranger every few steps on a beautiful, sunny day while walking down the path. However, when it's rainy and life isn't easy and every single fellow Drew student you walk by offers you their umbrella and engages you in small talk about that professor that you all know, you will realize that coming to the forest was the best decision you have ever made. 1,500 of the finest people you'll ever meet.

I love the rolling green lawns, and the campus in general. The professors strive to see you succeed, and hope the very best for you!
Drew University is an AMAZING school that had provided me with a very strong academic education, solid business connections but most importantly, life long friendships which, as those who may be a little older, are what really matter in life. I left Drew, went on to an Ivy grad school and currently do very well in business. The relationships and memories made at Drew are priceless. Drew provided a solid foundation for life. I think Drew is a hidden gem in the national ranks.
Such a welcoming environment. Everyone is so friendly and caring. Loved the campus. In a nice safe are where there are plenty of things to do on the weekend. NYC is 45 minutes away so its a good place to attend school.
