Plan a Visit

For Prospective Undergraduates

Come See The Forest For Yourself.

Discover Drew Day

Join us on campus and discover Drew for yourself. No mega open houses here— our more intimate Discover Drew Days, allow you to spend just a few hours “in the forest” and hear from current students, take a tour and meet faculty members who could become your real-life Yoda.

Campus Tours and Information Sessions

There’s no substitute for the real thing; come for a tour and see Drew’s beauty and feel its energy. Hour-long student-led campus tours depart from Wesley House. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in. If special assistance is necessary, please note that we require at least two weeks notice. Information sessions give prospective students and parents the opportunity to meet with admission counselors, explore our programs, learn about admission and enrollment procedures and ask questions.

Tours are offered Monday–Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Some Saturday tours will also be available. A brief information session will be held prior to each tour. Tours may not be offered on some holidays and open house dates.

Schedule an Interview

We strongly recommend a personal interview. Beyond your application, recommendations and transcripts, a one-on-one admissions interview allows us to learn more about you, your passions and discuss how Drew may be the right choice for you. An interview will not only enhance chances for admission, but also, if eligible, for the Baldwin Honors, Asbury, Presidential or Dean’s academic merit scholarships as well as for the Civic Engagement Scholarship. Selected candidates for the 7-year dual degree BA/MD program will be invited to participate in a required admissions interview.

Academic Day Visits

Academic Day Visits give high school seniors an inside look at what it is like to be a student at Drew. Typically, students sit in on one or two classes. Our admissions staff will work with faculty to select courses that best match your academic interests. During the visit there are also opportunities to have lunch with current students and take a campus tour.

If you have questions about the type of visit that may be best for you, please call us at 973-408-DREW and we are happy to assist you.

Attend a Transfer Exploration Day

We’re all yours any Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Visit us and:

MEET with a transfer admissions counselor.
GET your transfer credits and/or application evaluated.
LEARN whether you qualify for scholarships worth up to $27,500.
TOUR 11 a.m. or 2 p.m.


Join Us On the Road

Drew Admissions will also be crisscrossing the country and traveling around the world to meet you in your neighborhood. You’ll have several opportunities to meet your admissions counselor, current students, faculty or alumni.

In addition to visiting high schools and attending college fairs, you can see us in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Florida, Boston, Hartford and the Washington, D.C. area for a Drew on the Road event.  These sessions are great to learn more about Drew and to interview one-on-one without needing to come to campus.

Teaching Argument in a Digital Age Workshop Series

In the age of instant updates, fake news, and mile-long comment pages, it can be hard to navigate what makes a “good” argument. Join #DrewTEACH for a series of evening workshops in which participants will have the opportunity to be learners and makers.

Playing with Podcasts
Monday, March 26 | 6:30 p.m.

Reading and writing podcasts teaches young writers the power of making intentional authorial choices. With such a low-technology barrier, podcasts are a great kick off point for incorporating digital tools into the classroom. Through this workshop teachers examine how podcasts can be used for crafting strong arguments and for giving students.

Loud Silence and Organized Chaos: Using Digital Discussions to Promote Argumentative Writing
Tuesday, April 17 | 6:30 p.m.

During this workshop teachers will engage in a digital discussion as a discussion technique to promote the critical thinking and communication skills required for effective argumentative writing. Participants will analyze the strengths, opportunities, and challenges of incorporating digital discussions at various points in the argumentative writing process.

Teaching Argument with the Technology in Your Pocket
Thursday, May 10 | 6:30 p.m.

A lack of technology doesn’t mean that students need to miss out on honing digital literacy skills. This workshop helps educators to craft a Common Core aligned digital argument project using the technology students already have.
