News, Events & Podcast
By Dr. Andrew J. Salvati, Adjunct Professor of Media and Communications, Drew University
Drew Archives in 10 is a podcast project designed to highlight obscure, interesting, and surprising items
within the collections of Drew University’s Special Collections & University Archives in order to
encourage broader use of the archives among Drew students and faculty members.
Each episode of Drew Archives in 10 will feature a conversation between Head of Special Collections
& University Archives and Methodist Librarian Brian Shetler and Adjunct Professor of Media and
Communications Andrew Salvati centering on an individual item in the archive’s collections. The
conversations will be no more than 10 minutes in duration and will provide a description of the
archival item, discuss its historical context and its archival provenance.
Did you know that Drew University is rumored to be one of the most haunted schools in the United States? To bring Drew’s ghost stories to you virtually, we have organized a 5-part series of haunts for the month of October. For the first four Thursdays in October we will be live-streaming on our Youtube channel the four most haunted locations on campus. On October 29th we are releasing a virtual ghost walking tour on our Youtube channel that will give you a history of all of Drew’s ghosts.
Check out our new website to engage with spooky, Drew ghost content for the entire season! If you feel so inclined, submit your Drew ghost experience to us at email@example.com. You may even be featured in our stories!
