  • This is what I read dorm life is like at Drury University... Amber Perdue says, Each Resident Assistant (RA) is responsible for planning social and educational events for the hall…

  • Each of the different halls has its own flair to it. The general atmosphere at Drury is inviting and safe. Any one of the dorms would be a great choice…

    I attend classes at a separate campus, but we have multiple food choices within five minutes of driving distance!

    The Commons at Drury are a pretty standard buffet-style setup with a decent variety of options. The CX also has a pretty common lineup of chicken wraps, burgers, sandwiches, etc. if you know that you want something like that for certain. The hours for either of these choices are usually pretty great whether you're an early riser or you forgot to eat before you went to the library to study. When in doubt for dinner though, explore some options in Springfield because there are very few places you can go wrong. I highly recommend Pickelman's, Kai, and Bambino's for food, but if you're looking for a good coffee place try The Potter's House.

    Food and Dining options are Drury University split between two places. The Commons and Campus Exchange. The Commons provides a buffet style meal plan that offers many different options of food, but isn't open all through the day. The Campus Exchange, or CX, is open longer and has higher quality food that you can pay for with credit from a meal plan or cash. Both make great food, but the CX is always faster and often times better.

    Food and dining is a bit subpar. Some nights are great, while others are pretty bad leaving you with the options of cereal or salad bar. The best thing to do is cook in your apartment, plus it's cheaper!

    Food on campus is good, to some student. With this being such a small university, the cooks do a fantastic job at representing many different cultures in the cafeteria on a daily basis.

    The Commons (the cafeteria) is surprisingly good for a college campus. They frequently switch up the menu and offer a wonderful salad bar. The CX is also very good, with a good selection of sandwiches. But don't look for a candy bar here - the only selection is in the bookstore, and those are way overpriced!

    The official food service for the university isn't the greatest, but most days it's pretty good. They have a lot of variety (foreign food, salad bar, home-style food, dessert bar, grill, etc. ) and they offer a self-serve buffet at the end of each semester. Other than that we have the CX which is like pre-packaged food and some people prefer that. We also have a little Chinese restaurant on campus that is pretty good. The only downside to that is that it closes at 3pm. There is also a Subway at about a 10 minute walk and a Steak-Out across the street.

    Commons at the FSC always has something to eat, even when the food on the menu doesn't seem appealing. At times it can be repetitive with what food they make, but we also have the Campus Exchange, or CX as the students call it, that always has great food and is included in what ever meal plan you choose.

    The Commons Dining Hall features rich robust buttery meals to health nutty grain and fiber meals. All of these choices center students options of food items such as, deli meats, cheeses, breads, warm comfort food, vegan entrees and vegetarian entrees, ethnic foods and tastes, wellness entrees, a fun salad bar, and a yummy dessert station! The Commons is known to specialize in weekly and seasonal events to elevate students out of their mind and body and into a new frame of mind. No one needs stress and strain when they are trying to eat chicken wings. They just need some good olâ?? warmth and enjoyment! For the busy student on the go they offer handy to go containers and fancy to go silverware! Onward Ho young warrior! Not to mention the dietician on site for those who need extra weight control and/or a little extra fiber in their diet!

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is small, but fantastic. With only 4 fraternity chapters and 4 sorority chapters, everyone knows everyone. The houses all get along with each other but still have some fun rivalries. With Drury being a wet campus, the houses are able to host parties while still being under the careful eye of the school. This provides a good and safe environment for fun. The philanthropy events hosted by the Greeks almost always have a good turnout by the rest of the school and are usually pretty fun. Furthermore, Greek life often provides an academic support system for those who join.

    Drury University has both local and national fraternities on campus. Greeks host about 30% of Drury's population. These communities are dedicated to giving back to the community. They provide support to one another during school year through stress and strain. These communities are invaluable to campus life and an imperative part of the academic community. Brotherhood and sisterhood unite!!! Our on campus fraternal order consists of: Kappa Alpha, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Nu, and Sigma Pi. They house anywhere from 23 to 26 men on campus. Drury's fraternities are known for their excellent parties and fund raisers. Do not miss the fraternal quad. As for the campus's sororities sisterhood they consist of: Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Delta, Pi Beta Phi and Zeta Tau Alpha. These networks of woman do not have a quad on campus, rather they have campus privileges superior to other student bodies. Such as, an entire suite on campus and newly designed. They have a choice to their own roommates, this way if, they would rather live with a sorority sister then, sorority sisters may opt to live with one another and, are not delegated roommates as strangers. These sorority suites on campus include, a foyer, a very charming social gathering room for tea and cookies, and a kitchen. They express their membership with flags and banners on the exterior of their suites to show their pride. Lastly, Sorority events are typically held off campus and sustain the campus environment. The fraternities are located on Fraternity Quad and the sororities are located on Freeman Hall. Visit at your leisure or call ahead and book an appointment.

    I love Greek Life at Drury. They have 4 fraternities and 4 sororities that are all wonderful. About 33% of the campus is greek. The philanthropies are strong and are supported by every greek chapter. They help each other out with their big philanthropy events which helps get campus wide support.

    The Greek Life at Drury is different from the stereotypical version of college fraternities and sororities portrayed in the media. There is an opportunity for everyone who wishes to be involved in Greek Life to join and be a part of something greater than themselves.
