Meet Drew University, one of Capture Higher Ed’s newest partners!
Located in the thriving city of Madison, N.J. — just a 50-mile train ride from New York City — Drew has an enrollment of more than 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students and offers over 50 areas of study.
Founded as a seminary in 1867, the school is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year — that’s 150 years — and is the epitome of a residential college with 95 percent of its students living on its beautiful, wooded, 186-acre campus. This Phi Beta Kappa liberal arts university offers small class sizes (typically less than 20 students) and has a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio.
Drew’s close proximity to NYC makes the world-class city a world-class classroom. The university offers first-year seminars and courses on everything from Wall Street, the U.N. and social entrepreneurship to contemporary art, media and communications and theatre.
Drew also is home to 2015 Nobel Prize winner William Campbell, a long-time fellow in the unique, hand-on research program RISE. Also, MacArthur “genius” and Pulitzer Prize winner Julia Wolfe was Drew’s 2016-17 artist-in-residence and student mentor.
According to its website, “Drew University’s mission is to offer its diverse community of learners a challenging and individualized education shaped by a deep-rooted culture of mentoring, thoughtful engagement with the world beyond its campus, and a steadfast commitment to lifelong cultivation of the whole person. Through its distinctive emphasis on the reciprocity of knowledge, experience, and service, Drew prepares its students to flourish both personally and professionally as they add to the world’s good by responding to the urgent challenges of our time with rigorous, independent, and imaginative thought.”
Rigorous, independent and imaginative: Sounds like our kind of place. Capture is proud to welcome Drew University as one of our newest partners.
