I just graduated from Drew two days ago, and I already miss it. My four years at Drew were life changing to say the least. I made the most out of my education there and I used many of the resources that Drew offers. I had plenty of research opportunities and studied abroad as well. Drew is a great school that unfortunately, few people outside of the NYC area have heard of. If you want a smaller school setting then you can't get any better than Drew.
Drew is a good college. I enjoyed it there. Aside from the pretty campus, what is really outstanding about the college is its location close to New York. It is also a very safe campus and I never saw drugs, I mean they might have been there but everyone that I knew at Drew was solid and did not engage in that. Drew students typically are straight and narrow and come from good families and have goals. I have heard horror stories about other colleges which made me glad that Drew lacked the crazy Greek life and intensity of larger colleges. It is definitely a good place to learn for four years. I am happy that I went there.
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.
