Our Community – The Student Experience

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.

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.

Food for the Mind and Spirit

Sometimes fun means doing something social, like going to chapel, enjoying a concert, or breaking bread with good friends. Other times, you want to feed the soul with something you’ve never seen or done before. Drew organizes and hosts special guests, workshops, exhibits, poetry readings, plays, and other events and activities that will allow you to explore, deepen, and round out your knowledge.
