The Forest Awakens!

Get in the game, stay active and live a healthy lifestyle with Drew Athletics and Recreation.

Drew is the home of the Rangers and 22 NCAA Division III varsity sports. Student-athletes at Drew are renowned for their dual passion for their sport and their academic careers. Typically making up one-quarter of the student body, Rangers have boasted championship titles, scholarly awards and real-world experience during their careers in The Forest. When offered academic freedom, the ability to compete and deep resources to land internships and jobs, Rangers say, “I’ll have one of each, please.”

You don’t have to wear a uniform to reap the benefits of Drew’s Athletics and Recreation department. Campus Recreation’s programs are designed to meet the needs of the whole community, including all students, staff and faculty. Programs provide opportunities for the worthwhile use of leisure time and maintenance of high-level health and wellness. Activities are held in the Simon Forum and associated outdoor facilities.
