My name is Jennifer Stewart, and I am the Director of Orientation and New Student Programs. My main focus is to make sure all new students – freshmen, transfers and internationals – have a smooth transition into the Drury community. If you have any questions about the information below please contact me at email@example.com or (417) 873-6919.
Advising and Registration
Students transferring to Drury in Fall 2020 can register for classes as early as April once accepted to the University and deposits are paid. Transfer students will meet with an advisor in person or by phone to discuss how transfer courses have been received and how they will apply to Drury’s degree requirements. Students will then register for the first semester following a discussion of all options.
New Transfer Students moving into Apartments:
DATE – Friday, August 20th
TIME – 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Transfer students will need to go to the Safety and Security Office located in the lower level of the Findlay Student Center to be screened and receive your keys. All guests must be screened. Once your vaccination card / negative test is verified, you will receive a wristband and your keys. You may then proceed to your building to move in.
New Student Orientation begins at 6:00pm on Friday, August 20 and runs through Monday, August 23.

Commuter Student Association
The purpose of the Commuter Student Association is to provide services and activities for Commuter Students at Drury University as well as serve as the voice for commuter students.
Orientation Leaders will be present throughout New Student Orientation. They are available to assist new students by answering questions, providing guidance and providing information about what to expect once classes begin on Thursday, August 20.
Student Activities Fair
This event is held during New Student Orientation. The purpose of the fair is to encourage students to sign up for campus organizations, clubs and groups early on, before classes begin. There are over 90 student organizations available for Drury students to choose from.
Office of New Student Programs
The first year of college often presents students with new challenges as they face the academic and personal transitions required of them. This office, located in Findlay Student Center 120, serves as a resource for students who would like to discuss and resolve any issues that are preventing them from succeeding at Drury. We can assist students with goal setting, time management, academic concerns, and personal issues. We are here to listen, offer advice, point out new alternatives, and understand the exciting times and difficulties that lie ahead.
If you have any questions about your transition to Drury University, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Stewart, Director of New Student Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or (417) 873-6919.
