Drew is a really great college.Quite BrightMusic - Composition/Theory
Drew is a really great college. I was a music major and found that my time at Drew allowed me to be creative and innovative. The music department was fantastic and I really got to work with some amazing people. My education was totally worth it and I moved onto a great career in the music business. Socially, Drew offers a lot in the way of clubs and activities. It is not a school that has Greek life and this is a good thing, I found. Students were encouraged to define their college experience according to their own interests by getting involved with clubs. Some of the administrative aspects at Drew need to be changed. When I was there, financial aid was generous at first but then it slowly started to go away. I am not sure if it is like that now. Regardless, I would do it again if I could. Going to Drew was totally worth it.

Drew is a lovely school with a solid
Drew is a lovely school with a solid reputation. My son goes there and really likes it. He is a rising senior studying economics. The department has some good professors who really give the students solid mentoring. I was impressed with the quality of his education based on his heavy workload. It is a bit pricey but again, you get what you pay for. As a Drew parent, my son is happy there and is engaged with the community beyond the classroom, so therefore, I am happy.

Drew has a nice quaint campus nestled inQuite BrightPsychology
Drew has a nice quaint campus nestled in a woodland with great academic departments and professors. The best way to describe Drew is "engaging." The culture of the college is to engage all of their students, leading them to self-discovery and intellectual fulfillment. The school has many programs for students and there is something for everyone at Drew. It is definitely way ahead of its competitors in the NY/NJ area in terms of quality and programming. Among LACs nationally though it is not well known, sadly. This might change in time. Though the campus is a little bit aged and in need of some upgrades, since the new president came in, more and more money is being invested in improving infrastructure on campus. I graduated from Drew some years ago and I really loved the place. It is aptly described as a hidden gem but in time, more and more people will hear about it.
