Drew University Reviews
This is a PWI that has always stressed diversity and encouraged minority students to attend. Yet, ironically enough the school does very little to do anything to support the minority base. From addressing race issues on campus to financially supporting minority students in any real way. Their major concern is money and once that loan and is solidified they could care less how students are able to maintain the financial burden. They pulled half of my financial aid while there forcing me to pick up more jobs, commute and work to graduate early. By the end I worked 4 on campus jobs and one off campus at a local restaurant. They continue even after my completion to show disregard for mine or my peers of colors financial success. Despite the fact were drowning in debt they still never fail to use our photos and send a yearly email begging for donations. My instruction was a beautiful experience, as was my experience with on campus groups. But the financial struggle and clear disregard that was shown time and time again make it difficult to focus on those positives.
Drew University was a great stepping stone to my future. It helped me gain personal, communication, and hard-working skills. The business major was challenging and prepared me for multiple different fields of work. I look forward to seeing the future of the school as well as the new graduate programs they are engaging in.
I loved my college experience. My school was small enough to allow me to establish professional relationships with my professors and mentors. I was provided with the opportunity to hold multiple leadership positions that would have no been possible at a large school.
Drew provided a wonderful education with an intimate feeling in classes; I only can recall one class with over 20 students. The campus is gorgeous and inviting and the faculty are professional, caring, and knowledgeable.
The main reason I stayed at Drew University were because of the amazing professors I had not only in the psychology department, but in other departments of the school as well. Professors were mostly very understanding and available to meet with students and discuss any questions, comments or concerns at almost any time. The only problems I had with the school, were also similar problems a lot of other students had, which was with the food on campus and public safety. I fortunately commuted and would definitely recommend it because public safety was borderline harassing. It is impossible to get onto campus just to use the library or even go to the admissions building without a pass. People get parking tickets left and right because there is no clear cut and reasonable place for anyone to park. Also, the food on campus was atrocious. Get a place with a kitchen or prepare to order in a lot!!!. Besides some smaller social issues, the reason I went to Drew was to get a great education and my money was definitely well spent on getting a great education.
