Distinctively Drew

Real Research. Real Rewards.
Drew's one-of-a-kind Research Institute for Scientist Emeriti (RISE) is home to the 2015 Nobel Prize Winner Dr. William Campbell and gives undergraduate students hands-on research experiences as they are mentored by senior industrial scientists. 

Study in New York. Live in The Forest.
Drew's Semesters in the City feature out-of-the-classroom experiences that bring finance, international relations, media, social entrepreneurship and the arts to life.

"Freely Ye Have Received, Freely Give" is more than just Drew's motto.  We put learning to work to better the world. Drew's Civic Scholars are a group of students with a passion for civic engagement. This rigorous program includes seminars and community-based learning. We reward these students with a $1,500 per year scholarship. 

Get Your Act Together.
Backstage and The Princeton Review both give our theatre program high marks. Why?  Because at Drew, the journey from student performer to professional artists involved close mentorship from deeply committed faculty who are seasoned directors, actors, designers, writers and producers.
