The living arrangements on campus are pretty convenient. The options get better the longer you live there including the larger suites and the single dorms. The best options are the suites in McClendon Hall and the singles in Hoyt Hall. Both options are different: McClendon has mostly suites and Hoyt is almost all singles. There aren't really any bad options.

Drew is only a mile from the closest NJ Transit station which goes directly into NYC which is extremely convenient. There is also the Mad Shuttle, although most students don't know it exists. Most students have cars, but walking into town is pretty easy.

Drew is pretty diverse. I haven't seen many issues with prejudice here.
College Junior 2013-10-21T19:21:20Z
Over the years Drew has become pretty boring because public safety is on a rampage. Luckily, there are pubs off campus in Madison and Morristown, and it's easy to go into NYC for the night.

One of the only problems with Drew is it's location. Madison resists being a college town in almost every way possible so there's no off campus housing and very little to do in town. Some redeeming qualities of the location however are Drip (the coffee shop), and the pubs that have dollar beer night.

As they should be, Academics are the best aspect of Drew University. The professors legitimately care about their students and classes are small. Drew is also so close to NYC, creating a lot of opportunities like New York Semester on Contemporary Art, the UN semester, and the Wall Street Semester.

You can only park on campus legally if you are a Junior or Senior and then the permits are $200 per year.

There's a Chipotle in walking distance, and there's pizza/chinese/japanese food that you can get delivered but the healthy options are mostly limited.

Health & Safety:
Public safety is usually prowling around, especially on the weekends, so if you need them they'll usually be close by.

Drew University is pretty diverse when it comes to ethnic/racial diversity and economic background. For example, there are lots of wealthy people that go here because it is an extremely expensive school. On the other hand, there are a lot of very unprivileged people that get to go here as well due to the excessive amounts of financial aid they award.

The drug scene is becoming more visible at Drew University but it depends on who you hang out with and what social circles you are part of. Drinking is a big and popular activity on campus but it doesn't stop those who don't drink to hang out in those spaces.

Athletics play a somewhat important role at Drew but we lack school spirit. Most students attend the games but there isn't anything out there that initiates Drew spirit and draws the rest of the school to participate in it.

Drew University's campus is one of the prettiest campus that I have seen. It truly makes sense that they call Drew 'The Forest', wherever you go on campus, you will see green. In the spring and summer time, it looks like you're in Narnia. They have those antique lamps and clocks along the pathway and it is truly beautiful during the winter.

The academic programs at Drew are outstanding! The class sizes are perfect because you can feel comfortable and have the ability to talk in class. The professors encourage you to voice out your opinions and critical analysis and they provide you with the help that you need. They want you to pass your classes.
College Senior 2013-08-06T17:16:43Z
Drinking is popular and visible, but not everybody participates. There is somewhat of a drug scene on campus with some people getting into trouble with drug possession.
College Senior 2013-08-06T17:10:55Z
Lots of clubs and organizations on campus host events for students on campus that can be fun. For students 21 and over there is a pub on campus, but there are not a lot of good parties. There are also a limited amount of bars/clubs around. The bars that are in town, however, have specials for students such as dollar beer night.
College Senior 2013-08-04T06:29:42Z
Parking on campus costs $200 for now. The commuter parking lot is horribly too small. Doesn't have enough spaces for commuters to park and you end up having to park on the other side of campus.
College Junior 2013-07-29T16:18:36Z
The academics are really great at Drew. The tougher it is, the better of an education I receive. If I miss a class, I feel like I am behind because we learn so many new things each class, that I hate to miss just one.
College Junior 2013-07-29T16:17:20Z
The town of Madison has so many restaurants, not only just restaurants, but ice cream stores, and deli's! The restaurants are about 2 blocks from Drew, so they're close and very easy to get to on foot.
College Junior 2013-07-29T16:16:10Z
The freshmen dorms are the only problem, only because they don't have air conditioning. Even though they don't have air conditioning, I thought that they were great because you become close with your floor because the rooms are so close. The upperclassmen dorms are awesome, and the suites are very nice.

I am not a big sports person at my school so I don't really keep up with them. But I do know that it is a big part of my school and there are a lot of ways for non sporty people to get involved.

Health & Safety:
I always feel safe on campus, never have any concerns about my safety or well being.
College Sophomore 2013-07-16T23:36:14Z
Pretty strict when it comes to quiet hours especially on the weekend.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:39:51Z
The freshman dorms were practically a jail cell. Also, the upperclassman dorms are very old and not up to date.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:36:49Z
The psychology program at my school is great. The professors offer opportunities to do research and always have open office hours. My adviser and professors always push me to do the most with my major, such as applying to do research during the summer.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
