"The class sizes at Drury help create relationships and a family-type environment, and I made connections with teachers and fellow students that will last a lifetime."

"When I talked to Dr. Todd Lowery about the art program, I felt right at home. He and all of the other staff made me and my education feel valued. The closeness of the whole campus is so homey, you have a great opportunity to be recognized as an individual."

"Unlike larger universities where you may be no more than a numbered student to a teacher, at Drury the teachers actually know you by name and go out of their way to help you succeed."
