Drury University Reviews
I absolutely love this school and would recommend it to nearly everybody. The entire student body is an amazing community with lots of great people and amazing friends. And the professors are absolutely amazing and hands-on. They are also very concerned for the students and their personal lives due to the low student to teacher ratio. Overall, it is amazing!
I have nearly completed my first semester at Drury and I couldn't be happier! Since I'm from California, it's obvious that Missouri is quite a ways from home. Despite the near 1,800 mile difference, I feel much at home here in Springfield. The professors and advisors are wonderful, real genuine people that want nothing more than to help you succeed in life.
Drury is my dream school! I never would have imagined myself getting my Bachelors' out of state, but here I am! They came to my school in the middle of Arkansas in a town no one's heard of, and somehow they managed to stand out among all the colleges represented at our fair. I requested more information but had intended on going somewhere in-state like Henderson or Tech, so I didn't think too much about Drury. Until I came across a pendant right outside one of my teacher's doors that reminded me of how friendly the recruiters were, how honest they were about their experience and stories, and how small the student-faculty ratio was, so I scheduled a campus visit just for kicks. The second I set foot on campus I feel in love, and continued to fall deeper in love as the visit progressed. After seeing the gorgeous campus, meeting the incredible faculty who accepted me as if I were already part of the Drury family, and sat in on a Drury Singers rehearsal (which for a choir nerd like myself was heavenly), I pretty much had my heart set on campus. Coming from a low-income household, and with Drury being a private school, I knew there would be struggles; however, my counselor did everything in her power to get me every penny of financial aid she could find. She'd even call me outside of her office hours to excitedly tell me she'd found something or that she managed to extend the deadlines of certain applications for me! Now having been here over a year, I can honestly say I love it even more each day, and I could never see myself going anywhere else. Yes, it would be simpler, more convenient, and more financially feasible to go to an instate school, but no school in Arkansas can offer the same warmth around the campus (even though it's colder here) or the efficiency of the education or anything else on my long list of things that I love about Drury. This school has become a part of me.
