Overview

Drew University Overview

Interested students can step on to Drew's classic campus of wooded hills and rolling lawns and students will quickly see why it is called "the Forest." Everything students can expect from college life -- fun, friends, and a bright future -- is right here at Drew. When students are ready for a change of scenery, a quick walk to downtown Madison puts students on a historic main street, or a short 47-minute train ride will quickly immerse students in the excitement and opportunity of New York City. Drew is in the center of everything.

Drew University offers more than 50 fields of study across the arts and sciences. Students can mix and matches majors, minors, and special programs. So no matter the field of study, from art to business, from computer science to neuroscience, Drew gives its students both knowledge and know-how. Drew's Full-Impact Learning is built on 7 skills for success that are designed right into the curriculum. Students won't leave Drew without the tools needed to succeed in the 21st Century economy.

Drew professors teach by challenging and daring students to ask questions, push buttons, smash assumptions -- and fostering the intellectual confidence to move from heady conversations to practical applications -- in the lab, the woods, and across the world's neighborhoods. Students often get their hands dirty, feet wet, and their souls inspired because Drew stands by its principles and believes that the best teaching values the individual; while the best learning connects Drew students with the communities in a world that all share.
