From Drew’s wooded perch in suburban New Jersey, Manhattan is only a 30-minute train ride away, and Wall Street, the UN, and Broadway are common destinations for Drew interns. Drew is the state’s only prominent liberal arts college and one of the few in the greater New York City area. Nearly 60 percent of the students are from Jersey, and Drew is still struggling to find a national identity. Drew’s general education requirements renovation include coursework in six areas: depth of study (courses within the student’s chosen major); breadth of knowledge, proficiencies (writing, quantitative literacy, foreign language, and information literacy); local and global citizenship; an off-campus experience, and a first-year experience dubbed the DREW Seminar, the highlight of which is a day-long, faculty-led, course-related field trip to Manhattan. All students also complete a senior capstone experience.
