No matter your passion and interests, there are ample opportunities to get involved, find your niche, and discover your own Drury Experience.

Integrated Learning

Drury is a new kind of university that honors and effectively links liberal arts and sciences to the study of professional areas. This approach offers students unparalleled opportunities to get out of the classroom and into their community for unique, hands-on learning and research opportunities.

Among these opportunities:

  • An Honors Program that challenges curious and ambitious students to dig into subjects that truly interest them.
  • Life-changing study abroad opportunities that open up cultural understanding and global awareness.
  • A CORE curriculum that equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the pressing challenges and opportunities that await them in today's interdependent world.

Living on Campus

Year after year, Drury's freshmen-to-sophomore and sophomore-to-junior retention rates are higher for residents than commuters.

Studies show that students who live in a residence hall are more likely to...

  • Persist to graduation
  • Have greater openness to diversity and challenge, which is important for navigating the workforce
  • Get more involved in campus activities, which can lead to more leadership positions and deeper connections

From late-night impromptu pizza feasts to movie nights held out on Sunderland Field, the experience of living on campus is one that can't be replicated at any other point in life.
