Positive Negative Neutral Advice
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.

Question
Drew is a great college.BrightPolitical Science
Drew is a great college. I was pretty impressed with my education there. I studied political science and the profs are definitely good. Overall, it was a great college experience and I thought that it prepared me well for grad school. There is a new president on campus who seems to have a clear vision of where the school should be heading. Campus food could be a bit better. Drew is definitely worth a close look especially if you want NYC just next door.

Question
Drew has its pros and cons, more prosEconomics
Drew has its pros and cons, more pros than cons. Its a good school with good academics. But I wouldn't recommend it if you want a big school atmosphere. I spent four years there and I was happy to move on but I really liked the college andalot out of my education there. Drew definitely has to improve the quality of the food. They are doing a lot of work on improving the campus. Academics at the school are very good and each year they get better. They are constantly finding ways to enhance the curriculum and the faculty really do care about the students. For this it is worth the higher than usual price tag. Socially it's a bit lacking because of it's small size. Students tend to go home on weekends, most are from jersey. NYC is close by and this is a huge plus. The campus is also serene. This makes for a pleasant college experience. Overall Drew is a good school that unfortunately flies under the radar but I think in time it will become more well known, especially with the new president in charge of managing things.
