Bridges is a program designed to help culturally diverse freshman students make the transition from high school to college. This is an opportunity to get more connected with key people on campus and in the Springfield community.
Activities during the program are focused on building strong social networks, identifying opportunities for getting involved on campus and meeting faculty and staff who can help make the Drury experience as meaningful and successful as possible. As an added perk, Bridges participants move into campus housing early.
The Bridges program is totally free for incoming culturally diverse students.

The Drury Scholars Program was established in July 2008 by Drury professors Drs. Bruce Callen, Peter Miedlinger, Mark Wood and Charlene Ingwerson. The focus of the program was to give 15 African American middle school students a residential college experience. This program has grown to include three high schools in the Springfield area. Students are followed closely during the year and given assistance in researching colleges, financial aid options and career options. Students participating in the program meet with the program’s coordinator on a weekly basis.
