There’s a reason Drew students advance to the top graduate schools, companies, and organizations across the country. The success they have connecting their experiences at Drew to their long term goals are made possible by our deep culture of mentoring by stellar faculty, the depth and breadth of our programs, and the support to schedule your launch from day one. Welcome to your future.
Seek out the enigmas of science, in a research-intensive community centered exclusively on undergraduates like you. Hands-on work. Well-equipped labs. And true partnerships with faculty mentors who are active researchers. Drew students graduate as experienced scientists, ready to compete nationally for the best careers and grad schools.
Match the experience of a retired industry scientist with your potential as a Drew student and the result is RISE, the Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti, a catalyst for the next generation of trailblazers. Each of our RISE fellows—currently a dozen, including a Nobel Prize winner—mentors students in research projects with real potential to move science forward.
More than 50 students spend summer living on campus and conducting research in our labs, making DSSI, the Drew Summer Science Institute, the largest such program among our peer institutions. With those numbers, four to six students can work collaboratively with one faculty advisor, creating the lab teams necessary for complex research and interdisciplinary projects. This ensures that students develop the professional skills—like teamwork, problem solving, and goal-oriented management—demanded in science careers.
We guide our aspiring scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians along a purpose-driven path to success. It begins with hands-on courses introducing concepts and skills, and builds across increasingly sophisticated faculty-mentored research and scholarship. And, as a liberal arts college, Drew embraces a belief that scientific endeavor should connect across human experience and add to the world’s good. So go ahead—study chemistry and art history and business. We’re here for it.
