About

History

Drew was established in 1867 as a seminary, the antecedent of today’s Drew Theological School. In 1928, a gift led to the addition of the College of Liberal Arts, which began as a small college for men, became co-educational during the 1940s and grew significantly in the 1960s. In the early 1980s, it was granted what is still only the fourth Phi Beta Kappa chapter in the state.

Student Reviews

Amazing University
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love Drew. They have many programs to study abroad for short and long periods of time. They generously give scholarships if you deserve them and the classes are small enough to make connections for life.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Probability I wouldn't have attended so many courses because for this reason I couldn't live the real life of the campus.
