Congratulations on your acceptance to the Drew University Class of 2025! We are thrilled to welcome you to our community. This spring, we’re hosting a number of virtual and on-campus (when possible) events to welcome the Class of 2025 and new transfer students. Welcome to The Forest!
Central to Launch—Drew’s comprehensive and customizable path towards student success—is your plan that will align undergraduate experiences with life and career readiness. Launch is your ticket to linking your purpose to a pathway and a powerful community of mentors.
Our vibrant and diverse campus—we call it The Forest. You’ll see.—is a ten-minute walk from the Madison train station, which will take you directly into Manhattan’s Penn Station in under an hour. Our prime location in the powerhouse northeast corridor means easier access to opportunities—like those at myriad nearby corporate headquarters and pharmaceutical companies—as well as the experience and excitement of New York City.
Built into a Drew education are seven unique city semesters in New York. These programs take you into the city two days a week for out-of-classroom experiences that bring art, media, finance, international relations, theater, and grassroots organization to life. You’ll learn from experts in their fields and make connections that will change your perspective and launch your career.
Bottom Line: Drew is a smart investment in your tomorrow. According to the nonprofit Project on Student Debt, Drew graduates have lower average debt compared to graduates of other colleges, public and private. We’re a Fiske Best Buy college, we have scholarships and aid that will reward you for being smart, talented, and deserved of your education, and we will have your back for life.
