The campus is beautiful, the faculty are generallyBrightEnglish
The campus is beautiful, the faculty are generally very easy to approach - the only flaw is that the Theater Department is VERY hard to break in to - no outsiders allowed!The people in Madison HATE the college kids. I've heard it's getting better, but one would think in a "college town" they would be a bit more "college-friendly" - as in, discounts with a student ID, etc. Also - BARS IN MADISON are practically non-exisistent. Go to the on-campus pub instead.

A solid education-- I'm not sure today's tuitionEnglish
A solid education-- I'm not sure today's tuition costs are worth it-- they're steep, even allowing for inflation. A good growing regional reputation, that Tom Kean helped increase. People in the Northeast have certainly heard of it and while it hasn't opened doors like an Ivy league diploma might, it's viewed with respect. I was on a 3/4 scholarship (academic merit) and that helped a lot. Double majored English & History with women's studies minor. Yes, a good variety of people there, tho' the stuck up prep school types got annoying. NYC's only 1/2 hr. away by bus or train so the world's at your feet. Junior semester abroad I recommend, and it's a small enough school that you can hang out with 2-3 different cliques-- The theatre people, the feminists, the eco-tree huggers or college republicans and no one's going to shun you for that. Or at least they didn't in the early '90s. Super teachers for the most part (I did have a few ghastly newish faculty as profs)-- and v. helpful outside class time. They care, it's a small enough school you're known as an individual but not so small you're in a goldfish bowl. I'd go there again, and yes, I'd agree service is seen as important so maybe that's why so many of us work in public service/govt/ nonprofit venues.... after all, it was started as a theological school in 1867! The poli-sci program is strong, as were English and history. In the late 80s/early 90s the Psych. and Educ. majors (with nearby St. E's and Fairleigh) were something of a joke, maybe that's changed...

As a graduate who went on to MedicalSuper BrilliantZoology
As a graduate who went on to Medical school and who is now a Cardiologist I can tell you that I was better prepared than 90% of my peers. School is SMALL and homogeneous but that being said the professors are top being taught by smart aunts and uncles. The price unfortunately attracts rich brats but hey rich kids throw good partys! If you want a quality small private college where you can blast to NYC on any given notice then consider Drew.
