Drew University continues to monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and has adopted the practice of social distancing. The University is operating in Drew Virtual Time for both learning and business and will not resume regular business operations at least through the first part of June (instead of April 3 as we had previously anticipated). Additionally, we are moving into a different phase with residential life. Read President Baenninger’s message about this shift, and for the latest information, visit the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) resource site.
Every Drew student graduates with at least two career-building immersive experiences—guaranteed. They’re required in the Launch program and documented in your transcripts. That means you leave Drew with the meaningful professional experience preferred by 94% of employers.

“In my first foray into independent research through Drew's RISE program, I was able to work collaboratively with Bell labs, a prestigious research and development institution. My project led to a journal publication, IEEE conference paper and presentation—and a patent.”
