Here’s the thing about Drew: You couldn’t pick a better gorgeous, tree-filled campus in a charming and safe small town. Our hometown of Madison, New Jersey, is picture-perfect with lots of shops, cafes, and places to hang out. It’s also the #1 "Safest College Town" in New Jersey, and #3 in the US, according to SafeWise. It's less than an hour from all the opportunities of New York City and equally close to some truly amazing outdoor adventures. From campus, you can walk to the Madison train station, which takes you straight into the heart of midtown Manhattan. Or if you’re craving more of a nature moment, head to the Poconos, the Catskills, or grab your suit and hit the Jersey Shore. There's a reason that 90% of Drew students live on campus—because from here, you can go anywhere.
Drew is also home to more than 90 student-run clubs and organizations, 26 NCAA Division III athletic teams, and a non-stop lineup of events and activities, from fun festivals to Drew TEDx. And it all happens in a supportive community that has your back and is rooting for your success. To really get Drew, you really need to see Drew—so visit us! You can attend an Open House, schedule a campus tour, take a virtual tour; whatever works for you, just come see what we're all about.
