Drew University is a great institution for someone interested in the arts. There are a lot of great courses to take. Freshmen have the opportunity to choose a DSEM class, which is a 4 credit course focused on a specialized topic such as The Science of Shopping, Latinos in Hollywood, etc. There are also various clubs to choose from and anyone can join at any time!
I knew when I applied to Drew that the school had a stellar psychology program. That paired with the fact that the campus was small and not far from home made it my first choice! Once I began attending, I was able to find a number of other aspects that made me love the school: I made great friends, encountered fascinating perspectives, and met professors who fed my love of learning. If I can make a suggestion to any student who attends Drew, it's this: find Professor Raul Rosales and take a class of his.
Small school, nice housing, variety of food, great gym, beautiful surrounding area during spring, great town with lots of stores, and good professors.
Drew is not a very diverse university as they like to usually say they are, personally as a POC I find it very uncomfortable about how there is hardly people like myself which is very unfortunate. During my first year (2018-2019) racial slurs were plaster on university property which was pretty unbelievable. I believe Drew's academics and small classes would be the only reason for me to stay. Living on campus isn't so bad besides the food in the commons. Its a small-town so there isn't anything super interesting in town, this is why the school really promotes going into the city by train, (be sure to have money if you do decide to go) If you're not into Extracurricular Activities (i.e. sports) you won't really have much to do during the weekdays/weekends, if you're an art kids like me the art club takes long hiatus so be sure to join other clubs to have things to do.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Drew University is 57%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back to my high school to college transition and give myself advice I would tell myself to make sure that when I got to college to join anything that interest me and to take up any oppurtunity that seemed even remotely interesting to me. I would do that because I feel like that is the key to having a successful transition and college years. College is the time when you have the time and the resources to do things like go abroad and join odd clubs and sports. Once you graduate into the real world, you no longer have the chance to do these things because you have to get a job and provide for yourself.
Professor accessibilty and small class sizes
Liberal arts college that provides wonderful opportunities and experienced for both art, science and other majors.
It is a really small school where everyone knows everyone and it is very friendly and also great with helpfulness and opportunities for help (free tutoring and helpful caring professors) along with special programs such as going abroad to study, volunteer and internship and also programs such as the walstreet semester (for my business major).
I wish I had known that a year after I came, the tuition would go up making Drew the most expensive school in New Jersey. I can't afford paying almost $50,000 a year even with financial aid.
I emphasize the fact that it is a small campus, allowing for better student-to-teacher interaction. Class sizes are smaller, thus facilitating in-class discussion which helps students to learn more effectively and understand the material. We have a top-notch psychology and political science department. Also, our school has a particularly high rate of students that find jobs within their field after graduation.
Everybody is very diverse, and for the most part very well cultured. It feels like the entire student body is able to get along with eachother like one big family, not separated into groups.
Poor scholarly environment created by other students
I think the type of person who should attend Drew should be open to new life experiences and be willing to accpet different types of people. A sucessful Drew student is someone who likes to have a good time and socialize, but at the same time is willing to put their education first. Drew University is a very expensive school and people shouldn't take the education they are given for granted. Also, if that person fences, we have one of the best fencing teams in the country. In addition, we have exchange students from all over the world.
I think the most frustrating thing would be the separation that can occur between different groups on campus. It can sometimes be difficult to talk to different groups due to the separation between sports teams, theme houses, and other groups. This can be frustrating when you are trying to meet people in other groups or break out of the group you have fallen into.
I believe the majority of type of persons I've meet in this school filled out the requirement, so I would recommend it to everybody but most to people concentrated in business and arts if not I wouldn't recommend this school.
