Kaydience - 05/15/2024

The school a remarkable school. The professors are very helpful, as well as the advisors.everything is a good distance, and the food is usually good. The only problem is how careful you need to be at night due to the location of some of the campus and housing.

Claire - 05/14/2023

Drury University is the perfect school for me. It might not be for everyone, and it is by no means perfect, but I would not have it any other way. The Professors might be the best thing about this school. They are not only good educators, but also good people. The small class sizes allow you to know your classmates and professors. There could be improvements in terms of facilities and housing, but as a student worker, I know they are working on addressing those issues. I feel like I am getting a quality education at Drury, and I am apart of an amazing community of people!

Nicholas - 05/21/2020

I love Drury University. It is a smaller school, which allows you to know a majority of the people. The classes are small averaging around 20-30 students. There are so many groups/clubs to join, and everyone is accepting of who you are. The professors are very personable, and encourage meetings with them is you need to talk. I would recommend this university to anyone.

Zoe - 05/05/2020

Drury is a great place to be if your main focus is academic achievement. For the most part the class sizes are smaller than they were when I was in high school and the professors are always available when you have questions and most of them will end up knowing you by name which makes learning the material much easier. There are also many facilities available for the students on campus.

Drury University FAQS

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Drury University is 69%. 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 _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I advice parents and students to check out a college before deciding on one. This can give the student a feel for the school. Also, I highly recommend a smaller college say 8,000 students or less because you can really connect with people in your classes and with your professors. I think this is really important because it allows the student to learn better and make more friendships in their smaller classes. In a larger class, it's hard to get to know people because you're just a face in the crowd. Also, your professor doens't get a chance to know you for who you are. It really comes down to what the student wants and is looking for in a college. In the end, it is the student who will be attending classes, participating in sports or intrumals, and meeting new people. You need a place that fits you and your wants and needs.

  9. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    I'm not really sure what my school is best known for. Then again, coming from a high school literally across the street is kind of like growing up next door to Brad Pitt. You know that there might be something happening, but you aren't really sure what, and when you find out it's a little surprising but not a really big deal to you, because you grew up next to him and he'll always be the kid with the dorky hair. That being said, Drury has a lot to offer that's not always readily apparent.
