Drury University Reviews
I love the people of Drury University! The students, faculty and staff have all made my experience there amazing. There are some problems that come with the school being small, such as some understaffing and limited course availability, but it is still a great school to attend.
Drury University has been an amazing educational experience for my first year In College. I am majoring in Music Therapy and the field and this schools program for it are fantastic. All of the teachers I have had so far far extremely and are always engaging in their teaching. The campus is beautiful with trees and fountains that are calming and relaxing. One thing that does sometimes come up that I don’t like is how little the music programs funding is especially for equipment but everything else about my experience has been great!
Drury University is the embodiment of a liberal arts education. Small class sizes and teacher involvement create a casual but academically rigorous environment. Recreation sports and collegiate basketball are big on campus. If you have any passion you'll be able to find a club for it on Drury's campus!
