Drury University Reviews
Overall, my experience at Drury has been great! It is a beautiful, small campus with a family-like atmosphere. While it's not in the safest part of Springfield, campus security has a big presence and there is an SPD substation on campus. We have great athletic programs and awesome student life activities.
Drury University in Springfield, Missouri has provided me with an excellent beginning to my academic and athletic collegiate career. Drury is a smaller school in a bigger town of about 200,000. What I like best about Drury is the sense of community and feeling of family that is established by the students and professors alike. Everyone at Drury is in it together and this provides a very healthy environment that allows you to learn and do your work in the most efficient way. I hope to see Drury continue to grow in size and still keep its community feeling.
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.
