Here’s the thing about Drew: You couldn’t pick a better spot to spend four years. Gorgeous, tree-filled campus. Charming and safe small town. Less than an hour to all the opportunities of New York City and equally close to some truly amazing outdoor adventures. A full 90% of Drew students live on campus. Because from here, you can go anywhere.
Your New Home
Our beautiful, wooded campus—called The Forest—is the perfect home base: a historic campus that offers the comforts of small-town living, the excitement of big-city adventure, and easy access to a world of opportunities.
Our hometown of Madison, New Jersey, is picture-perfect, with lots of shops, cafes, and places to hang out. It was also recently named the #1 Safest College Town in New Jersey, and #3 in the U.S., according to SafeWise. From campus, you can walk to the Madison train station, which takes you straight into the heart of midtown Manhattan in under an hour. If you’re craving more of a nature moment, that’s easy too. Head to the Poconos. Or the Catskills. Or grab your suit and hit the Jersey Shore. Of course, you might just want to stay put. Campus is humming with all kinds of events all year round, from Fern Fest to TEDxDrewUniversity.
Plays. Fairs. Concerts. Lectures. Workshops. Readings. Exhibits. Performances. Festivals. Conferences. And marquee visitors including world leaders.
