  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

Drury has a spectacular, comfortable campus and a wonderful atmosphere to go with it. Because it is a smaller campus the focus is on the students as individuals first. Best of all, this campus strives to involve students throughout the community.
