"There are not a lot of colleges that students would feel open and friendly enough to hang out in the resident assistants room or even the resident directors, but at Drury that is not the case. Based on my own personal experience and experiences I have heard from other first time freshmen, Drury is easily definable: home."

"The people here at Drury are special, and they are what makes this place great. Whether it is my friends, classmates, professors, or even the maintenance, commons, and security staff. The personal relationships that I have made here have helped make the time I have spent here the best of my life thus far."

"Community is such a huge part of what makes Drury so special, and I feel directly responsible for cultivating this as an RA. We have the opportunity to make a lasting impact very early on, which is just such an honor. On top of this, we also get to be a part of one of the strongest support networks on Drury's campus as members of RACA staff, and I'm forever grateful and humbled to be a part of that."

"My favorite thing about living in the dorm is the personal connections that I get the opportunity to make with all the people there. This fueled my decision to apply an RA and continue being an RA. I have met so many wonderful people and made so many close friends by being an RA. I live with 100 awesome people and I'm not sure my college experience would have been as delightful without that opportunity."

"On my visit I knew I instantly liked the campus dynamic. I decided to become a Community Assistant to help create that for residents and be involved in creating the atmosphere. I love being on campus and close to everything that is going on. Drury is a tight-knit community, and living on campus gives residents the college community that they wouldn't ever experience otherwise."

"I became a CA because I love the idea of forming and strengthening Drury’s community. I feel it is very important to bring residents together to truly make them feel comfortable and at home. There is a strong sense of community at Drury. The class sizes are smaller allowing residents to meet and get to know more people, thus allowing the residents to become more comfortable in their community."
