Drury University Reviews
I went to Drury for two years. It was very overpriced for what it was. The campus looked old and run down and the area of Springfield it is in is not a good area. It is walking distance to where people get shot practically daily. The people that go there are all either on full rides or have donated so much money to the school that they only got accepted for their money. Therefore there are only rich snobs or super smart loners to hangout with.
I am enrolled in Drury's online classes for Dual Credit in my high school. The teachers are great and always willing to help if you put in the effort.
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.
Drury provides a top notch education while making it easy for a person like me to work full time and be a full time student. They prepare you well for your career after graduation.
I have liked my experience at Drury. The classes I’ve taken were excellent, and the professors are always willing to provide individual feedback for students. I wish Drury had a better reputation, because it truly is a good school. I also wish it was in a more diverse area- Springfield, MO is not very diverse at all.
I've only been here for a year and I've fallen in love with the school!!! Drury University is a place to call home for anybody!!
Though the academics and professors are all very helpful and caring the athletics at this school are poorly monitored when it comes to the issues of hazing. They have had many incidents in the past and are sure to have many more if they do not change the way that they treat those that see it and let it happen, whether it be faculty or athletes.
The Professors constantly encourage you to excel and keep working hard. It is a positive learning experience. The university employees are all friendly and helpful.
I love Drury University and I am very happy i chose to attend this college. It is a friendly environment and very easy to navigate your way around. Almost all classes have a max of 30 students there-for allowing more one on one time with teachers.
The law enforcement academy at Drury university is one the best programs I have had the pleasure of attending. The instructors are knowledgeable on the subject matter and put time and effort into helping each student understand the subject matter and to excell as future law enforcement officers.
The school is great. The professors are very easy to talk to. The location of the school in Springfield, MO can be sketchy at times. Overall the university has a great atmosphere for learning.
I enjoy attending Drury University. The classes are small, and it is easy to know other students around campus. The professors are very helpful and easily accessible, whether it be after class with questions about that days lecture, or by email or office hours.
The atmosphere just walking the campus is one of the best I've seen. Since its a relatively small private school, most everyone knows each other. Not to mention their academics are absolutely stellar, and when it comes to architecture, they're one of the top schools in the country if that says anything at all. The diversity here is amazing, with about a fifth of the population being international students. Overall, it's just amazing.
I love it at Drury! I just finished my first semester, The only problem I have had at Drury is the food is not very good. The professors are great, the environment is great!
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!
Drury University was the best place for me to get my education. The people are friendly and I made best friends for life. They are also creating a master plan that will set the university for years to come.
I loved my experience at Drury. They want you to feel involved and the campus is beautiful. No matter where you go there is a smiling face!
