Look elsewhere.
Look elsewhere. Drew has some positive aspects but overall this school is average and not worth the money. Drew does not have any name recognition outside of NJ. Honestly, I didn't enjoy my time there and I felt that the academics were pretty fluffy. The courses lacked substance and there wasn't much work assigned. When I graduated from Drew, I kind of asked myself, what did I just get out of my education there. Maybe it wasn't the right fit for me but I felt that I would have benefited from a more challenging academic curriculum. Drew did not deliver on this end. The campus is pretty but honestly it's in the middle of a park and this has some serious drawbacks like flooding, deadwood falling all over from the trees and the lack of a university feel. Drew is good for a certain type of student and I recommend looking at the school if you are molded to Drew's environment. However, if you are looking for the real college experience with a challenging curriculum that makes you busy yourself to get a B plus, then do not look at this school.

Drew U is a school that has seriously
Drew U is a school that has seriously declined. As a student, I can say that the school lacks rigor. Too much busywork and not enough serious learning. The environment is way too relaxed. Not condusive for learning. Go here if you want to spend a fortune and not work. Later on you will regret it when your colleagues have had better schooling and you are left adrift in the work world wondering what you missed.

Drew is an ok school.English
Drew is an ok school. The campus is serene and the profs are good but honestly, if you are looking for a real college experience, do not go here. It's sort of like a country club with classes more than a college. Professors are easy graders and sometimes the work is less than challenging. Nonetheless, the profs are smart and students are motivated. It's just not much of a challenge coming here. I would go elsewhere if I were looking again at colleges. More negatives than positives to say about Drew. Dorms are dungeons, food is bad, weekends are too quiet, students sometimes act like high schoolers. The only real plus to Drew is the profs and the variety of classes. But since the workload for most classes is lighter than usual, I thinkto other colleges I've seen, this doesn't even give me enough reason to want to return to the college. Drew isn't bad but you can do much better.
