I transferred in from a local community college, so I can't speak for the full four-year Drury University experience or living on campus, however in the year that I have been here I can definitely agree that "The Drury Difference" is something. Class sizes are at the max about 20-25 people, but often times its fewer. There's only six of us in my upper level media class and only eight in my Chinese History class (12-15 in some other communication classes about around 20 in Spanish). The professors, hence, have a real relationship with EVERY student. They have been a great help to me and I've seen the same with others.

I truly love attending Drury through the online program. I live in California and the professors work very well with students. I’ve had the flu and missed a week of assignments and the professors worked with me to make up my assignments. They are always available for questions and open to suggestions. It makes online learning fun and easy. At first I was nervous because I am a visual hands on learner but through the many resources and class discussions it helped my learn another way to learn. I truly recommend Drury!
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!
