College Raptor: Drew Is NJ’s Hidden Gem

Top small school in the state, among nation’s lowest student loans

September 2019 – College Raptor has placed Drew University in the spotlight.

The publication ranked Drew as New Jersey’s top small school in their 2020 Hidden Gems in the US rankings.

On their Hidden Gems list, College Raptor selected the top small school—defined as having fewer than 7,000 undergraduates—in each state based on metrics like graduation rates, campus diversity, selectivity and student-faculty ratio.

Other schools to earn Hidden Gem status include Centre College, College of Saint Benedict, Harvey Mudd College, Haverford College, Rhode Island School of Design, Sewanee–The University of the South and St. John’s College.

Drew was also named to College Raptor’s Hidden Gems with the Lowest Average Federal Student Loan Debt list of 25 schools across the nation. Drew ranked 14th in a pool of 500 schools that were considered.
