You’ve come this far and found me on this page!

I hope I will have the opportunity to help you with the admission process and scholarship application, to handle the I-20, and to prepare you for the F-1 student visa interview.

I understand that applying for colleges overseas and eventually picking a college to invest the next few years of your life in can be stressful. The International Admissions Office and I will provide you with as much information about Drury University as you need to make an informed decision. If you decide to join the Drury Community, we will guide you through the process step by step until you arrive on the Drury Campus and support you until you graduate.

Here, you’ll go.
