KDRU (Drury University Broadcasting)

About the Organization
KDRU is a non-commercial, student-led college radio station that serves Drury University and Springfield, Missouri. In addition to playing a variety of music, KDRU is a true community-focused station featuring unique and locally produced news and feature programming. At KDRU, we provide Drury students the opportunity to grow in multiple areas and create thought-provoking content through a variety of platforms. Whether on-air or behind the scenes, broadcast cultivates skills and confidence that students can take far beyond the airwaves. 

KDRU's staff meets once monthly on Tuesdays from 3 p.m. in the Shewmaker Communication Center.

How to Join
Students must enroll in Radio Activities 141 and gain experience for at least one semester in how to operate and manage the KDRU radio station. After at least one semester of training, the students may continue to enroll in the class (142 and 143) to stay active or continually work at the station as a member of the organization, but not the class.
