Founded in 1867, Drew University affirms its commitment to a useful liberal arts education where students explore the arts, natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities through hands-on learning in and out of the classroom. Students are taught by faculty who become true mentors, guiding them toward their postgraduate plans. Drew students are doers, not spectators. Drew University recently introduced Launch, which syncs career development with academic study and powerful community. This program guarantees two real-world, résumé-ready experiences (internships, New York City Semesters, hands-on research, etc.) and provides plenty of opportunities to earn industry-recognized credentials. A customized mentorship team supports and guides students throughout their four years. Located in a vibrant, safe small town outside New York City, the beautiful historic Drew campus is affectionately known as “The Forest.”

Visit campus
There’s no substitute for seeing for yourself. Come for a tour and a group information session to see Drew’s beauty while feeling its energy. Tours are offered Monday–Thursday at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm and Friday at 10:00 am. A brief information session is held prior to each tour. We strongly encourage an individual interview on campus, in your area, or by Skype. Interviews help us get to know you and help you get to know Drew better. Interviews also increase chances of admission and receiving a top academic scholarship. You can arrange an interview and/or schedule a tour and information session by going to drew.edu/visitinfo.
