I was a softball player.Quite BrightMath
I was a softball player. The person that recruited me was let go. They hired a coach and all she wanted to do is get rid of the older recruits, nor did she care about the classes.

Anyone wanting to go to this University, make sure you are always, always asking for the proper advise. I took the Advise by my advisor and it was completely wrong. After going for 3 years was told, I could not graduate or finish my goal in time. That is what you pay for. Starting my Senior year, I was told I had to drop classes that they approved, so I took the semester off and transferred. Now, I year backed up, loss of alot of money. Thanks to the idiot advisers, who gave no direction. They care about the money, not the Pupil, which we were told from the get go.Be very careful before signing your life away.

Question
I have made good friends at Drew andQuite BrightNeuroscience/Cognitive Science
I have made good friends at Drew and my professors have been mostly great. However, for someone who had initially planned on attending a more competitive school (came to Drew mostly because of the financial aid) I do not feel challenged at all. I once had a writing professor tell me there was nothing more she could teach me because the other students were still on a lower level. I am not trying to brag, I am by no means a genius, and there were a number of things I felt were glossed over because my essays seemed good in comparison. If you are looking for very challenging academics do not come to drew. Also, the campus is so small it starts to feel suffocating after a while. Friend groups can get pretty cliquey, and there are so few people that you will see the same people over and over again. Clubs claim to be active but there aren't that many and nobody really goes. Social life is kind of dead unless you go to New York on weekends or spend your time drinking/smoking in your dorm.

Question
Drew University has a dumpy campus.Bright
Drew University has a dumpy campus. This college needs a serious facelift. Yes, the trees are nice but the buildings and facilities are terrible. Not worth the money. Seriously, as a student at Drew I was often disgusted with the way this college managed their dorms and classrooms. Terrible facilities.
