This year, Open Doors included six events to accommodate the school’s global presence and various degree programs. 

The events kicked off with Korean Student Visit Day. Undergraduate students from several South Korean universities journeyed to Drew’s campus in Madison, NJ, to explore pursuing a theological education in the U.S. Candidates were invited to tour the United Methodist Archives and History Center, located on Drew’s campus, and attend chapel service led by students in the Korean Caucus.

Zoom and in-person sessions were offered to master’s and Doctor of Ministry applicants. Attendees were welcomed to lectures and classes offered by Theological School Dean Edwin David Aponte, Professor of Church Music Mark Miller, Assistant Professor of Religion & Society Elaine Noguiera-Godsey, and Affiliate Professor in Faith and Finance Sidney Williams.

“The lecture addressed the cutting-edge issue that is threatening human existence,” said a candidate of Nogueira-Godsey’s lecture on religion and climate change. “It was enjoyable and relevant in our times, and it gave me a foretaste of what to expect from Drew.”

Prospective students from the six sessions, representing more than 10 states and 20 countries, marveled at the student life offering available to Drew students, whether on campus or off.

“By attending Open Doors, I came to realize that Drew is the best school everyone would love to attend,” said a prospective student. “I would like to thank you all for the love and care that you are showing to your students.”

Another prospective student echoed this response.

“Open Doors was actually impactful, especially getting to know that religions do have effects on climate change.”

Drew Theological School is now accepting applications with deadlines approaching soon. To learn more or apply, visit drew.edu/theo.
