Our Community

As a school of theology with a vibrant campus life, we know the power that comes from dwelling together in community.

Here at Drew, the circle is wide and the engagement is deep. Students, faculty and staff pray, eat, learn, sing and travel together. We disagree, misunderstand and struggle—together.

There are plenty of ways to explore your faith at the Drew Theological School, and the fellowship that arises from spending time on campus or in our inclusive virtual spaces.

Bring Justice-Oriented Thinking to Drew

Drew Theological School features theologically adventurous and interdisciplinary courses. We provide an education that demands justice-oriented thinking, apprenticeship training based on real-world issues, and learning that promotes adaptability and innovation. 

The next generation of faith leaders needs courage and imagination to constructively engage with the challenges and opportunities of our age. That is at the core of how we do things. Learn more and see the Theological School community in action.

Campus Spaces

“When through the woods and forest glades (we) wander,” as the classic hymn says, we encounter spaces that ring with spiritual majesty, as well as a few set aside for religious purposes.

Seminary Hall

Seminary Hall is home of Drew Theological School, the Doctor of Ministry program and the Graduate Division of Religion. With its Gothic-style arches and brick patterning, Seminary Hall provides plenty of spaces for contemplative reflection.

Craig Chapel

At the center of our worshiping and learning community is Craig Chapel. Tucked into Seminary Hall, it hosts weekly worship experiences, lectures, Advent and Lenten services, and many more events that bring us together for celebration and worship. Our Drew community can join virtually from around the globe as well as in person in the chapel itself.

Graduate Living Spaces

Eberhardt Hall – Eberhardt Hall is home to graduate and theology students, as well as a few undergraduate theme houses. Its private kitchens, patios, and more help students create a comfortable home on campus.

Tipple Hall – Married couples, singles, and families alike enjoy Tipple Hall. Its picnic areas, outdoor playground, playrooms, lounges, and common area fireplace truly create an accommodating campus experience.

Authentic Community

Second career–somethings and twenty-somethings collaborate on projects. African American gospel music resounds from the chapel. Students practice sermons—not just in English but in Korean, French, and Spanish. Diversity is not a slogan. It is reality. There is no majority group, and our community reflects the multiplicity of the real world.

Student Groups

African Students Community at Drew Caucus (AfriSCaD)

AfriSCaD offers students the opportunity to form relationships, connections, and a sense of community while transitioning from Africa to the U.S. The caucus is also intended to be a resource for African students in need of support when navigating the differences within the foreign community and the ability to remain present to the African identity, cultures, and integrity.

Black Ministerial Caucus (BMC)

The BMC supports and celebrates Black culture through inspirational chapel services, educational ministry conferences, and appearances by influential figures.

Graduate Division of Religion Student Association

As the liaison to the University for students in the Graduate Division of Religion, this group advocates for the needs of aspiring academicians—from library resources to technology issues. The group also supports PhD students through professional development, offering workshops, colloquia, and travel funds for conferences.

Korean Caucus

Building a strong Korean cultural community is this group’s mission. Count on them to provide car rides from the airport, organize kid-friendly worship services, prepare traditional Korean snacks during exam time, and more.

Latinx Caucus

From a “Love Thy Neighbor” themed chapel service to a lunch talk about the struggles of undocumented immigrants, this student group connects Latinx students with each other and the Drew Theological School community.


Drew Theological School is an affirming community. Spectrum leads services in Craig Chapel and hosts receptions in the Atrium in Seminary Hall, while addressing issues critical to the LGBTQ community through guest speakers and panel discussions.


This student-activist group engages in ecological ethos on campus and in the community. The Drew Theological School Community Garden provides fresh produce to the Drew community and local food pantries. Drew is able to bless those in need by sharing our faith practically.

The Theological Student Association

This official student governing body provides much-needed breaks from study sessions by planning community activities, but also has a serious role in making all final decisions on student matters and providing support for Theological School students. Get in touch by emailing tsa@drew.edu.

Women's Ministerial Alliance
