HISTORY OF DRURY UNIVERSITY
ALMA MATER OF DRURY UNIVERSITY
Drury College was founded in 1873 by four New England
Congregationalists: the Reverend James Harwood, Judge
Charles Harwood, Samuel Drury, and Dr. Nathan Morrison, who
became the college’s first president. The New England Puritan
ideal of an educated clergy and an educated citizenry
influenced the development of American higher education for
several centuries and certainly the founders of Drury College
were nurtured in this rich tradition.
Hail! Alma Mater
Drury, to thee
We pledge in word and deed
Our Loyalty.
Raising this hymn of praise
’Til the heavens ring;
Hail! Alma Mater
Drury, we sing.
The plan was to build a strong classical college with the
standards of New England schools, but with educational,
religious and musical programs like those at Oberlin College.
Many of the early professors were ministers and most came from
Yale, Dartmouth, Harvard and Williams, prompting some to call
Drury “The Harvard of the Midwest.”
“Christ and Humanity”
Thy motto strong;
Firm stand thy children true
Against the wrong.
Honor thy watchword,
Service thy aim;
Hail! Alma Mater,
Drury proclaim
It is significant that Drury’s founders intended it to be
nonsectarian and coeducational, a somewhat unusual feature
in 1873, with a strong emphasis on the formation of moral
character, and a commitment of the wholeness of person, body,
mind and spirit.
Thy spirit as a fire
Burns in each breast;
With courage drawn from thee
We spur our quest.
When the college opened in September of 1873, the campus
covered less than two acres on Benton Avenue. Acquisition of
what would become known as “The Forty Acres” took nearly
sixteen years.
Grand be thy destiny,
For thee we pray;
Hail! Alma Mater,
Drury Always!
Today, Drury University covers more than 90 acres and features
the Trustee Science Center, Olin Library, Hammons School of
Architecture, Shewmaker Communication Center and many
other facilities not envisioned by the original founders. However,
the tradition of educational excellence in the liberal arts is
flourishing after more than 135 years.
Melody: Prince Alexei F. Lvov, 1833
Lyrics: Professor Harrison Hale, 1909
EDUCATION AT DRURY UNIVERSITY
The purpose of Drury University is to cultivate spiritual sensibilities
and imaginative faculties, as well as ethical insight and critical
thought; foster the integration of theoretical and practical
knowledge; and liberate persons to participate responsibly in
and contribute to life in a global community.
Drury is an independent university, church-related, grounded in
the liberal arts tradition, and committed to personalized
education in a community of scholars who value the arts of
teaching and learning.

WELCOME
FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE STAFF
The first year of college involves many transitions for any student.
At Drury University, we have a carefully planned first-year
experience program to assist students as they progress toward
graduation. It is our goal to ensure that each student receives
the support that he or she needs in order to succeed during their
first year.

Our faculty and staff continue to develop exciting programs that
reflect intentional integration and collaboration between the
traditional liberal arts and professional career preparation.
Experiences beyond the classroom enhance the academic
curriculum and give students the opportunity to integrate theory
and practice. These experiences include study abroad,
leadership, community service, internships and undergraduate
research; you will find many opportunities to become involved
during your university career.

Drury Seminar (CORE 101/103) is a required first-year experience
course designed to provide students with the academic skills
necessary for succeeding in college. This course will involve
significant amounts of reading and writing. Emphasis will also be
placed upon developing oral communication skills and critical
thinking. Every first-year student is assigned a faculty member
who teaches their Drury Seminar course and serves as that
student’s mentor and advisor. It is this faculty member who will
serve as a guide for new students as he or she navigates this first
year.

FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE OFFICE
The first year of college often presents students with new
challenges as they face new academic and personal transitions
required of them. The First-Year Experience Office serves as a
resource for students who would like to discuss and resolve any
issues that are preventing them from succeeding at Drury. We
assist students with goal setting, time management, academic
concerns, personal issues and any other problems they may
encounter during their stay at Drury. We’re here to listen, offer
advice, and point out new alternatives during the sometimes
difficult, but exciting times that are ahead. More resources are
available online at www.drury.edu/NewStudents.
This First-Year Experience Guide was designed as a quick
reference to the many services and programs that are offered at
Drury. Our exceptional programs are directed and implemented
by a talented group of student affairs professionals who are
dedicated to student success.
We are always available for students to share their successes or
challenges with us. Our goal is to provide assistance to students
as they adjust to the expectations of college. Please contact us
with questions and ideas; we look forward to meeting you!
STUDENT & FAMILY ASSISTANCE
If you or your family would like assistance with any topic listed in
this handbook, please contact the First-Year Experience Office

FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE
STUDENT GUIDE TO CAMPUS RESOURCES
DRURY CORE: ENGAGING OUR WORLD
The CORE Curriculum prepares students for personal and
professional success in an increasingly global society. We believe
that a university education should emphasize a breadth of
knowledge, depth in a particular field or major, and the ability to
integrate different ways of understanding the world. CORE
creates a unique campus feeling, which encourages students to
study abroad, engage in service learning and expand their
intellectual horizons.
Drury University seeks to prepare students for leadership roles in
which creativity and interdisciplinary thinking will be essential;
develop students’ understanding of scientific and quantitative
reasoning and the diversity of human experiences and cultures;
enhance students’ abilities in writing, critical thinking and oral
communication; cultivate students’ abilities in ethical and moral
reasoning;
foster
cross-cultural
understanding
and
communication based upon mutual respect; and liberate
students to become engaged citizens who pursue a vision for
social justice.
These requirements ensure that students will get a broad liberal
arts education, while the GLOBAL CHALLENGES (or G-tag)
requirement guarantees that students have a strong emphasis in
global education.
ENGAGED LEARNING
Each student will experience how a Drury education translates
away from the classroom. The engaged learning requirement is
met with two experiences drawn from Study Abroad, Internships,
Research and Scholarship, and Community Engagement. These
opportunities allow students to experience the world, achieve
mastery in their fields, develop leadership abilities, serve local,
national, and international communities, or develop a deeper
understanding of their place in the globe.
THE MAJOR: STUDY IN-DEPTH
Each student chooses a major or majors based on interests,
abilities and future plans. Students are encouraged to see
connections between their general education and their degree
program.
DRURY SEMINAR
All freshmen take this course, which focuses on developing
students’ writing skills, critical thinking abilities, and information
literacy. The content of each section is based on a theme
determined by each faculty member who teaches the course.
SENIOR SEMINAR OR RESEARCH
Senior Seminars are offered in each major as the culminating
experience. The seminars or research represent a time of reexamination and reflection as students bring their liberal arts
experience to their work. Each project explores its topic in terms
of values implications, historical context, and societal
significance. The seminars help students make a smooth
transition from college.
DRURY FOUNDATIONS
Beyond Drury Seminar, students take a skill-building course that
further develops their writing, critical thinking, and informational
literary skills. These courses include work in English, History,
Philosophy and Religion, or Political Science.
GLOBAL FOUNDATIONS
This sophomore-level course prepares students to conceptualize
and address global issues by applying basic skills and
approaches from multiple disciplines. Its aim is to ensure that
students emerge from the general education curriculum with the
ability to engage our world by cultivating a broad set of skills
designated by the “Four C’s”-- how to Connect across
disciplines,
how
to
Conceptualize
theories,
how
to
Communicate in various formats and how to Create solutions.
ETHICAL FOUNDATIONS
This junior-level course asks students to develop an
understanding of ethical behavior through an introduction to the
most influential ethical theories, both past and present. Courses
in ethics encourage students to foster communities that flourish,
as well as to appreciate the roles that reason, feeling, and
perception play in living well.

GENERAL ACADEMIC INFORMATION
REGISTRATION
Freshmen are registered for fall semester classes once their
tuition deposit has been paid and the online advising
questionnaire has been completed. Advance registration for
spring begins in November. Students should plan ahead to meet
with their advisor prior to registering for spring classes. A fee is
assessed for late registration.
Students may appeal grades that they believe are unfair. The
procedure for grade appeal is presented in detail in the
academic catalog.
SCHOLASTIC PROBATION
During the freshman year, a student is placed on probation
when his or her grade point average falls below 1.6. After
earning 30 university hours, a student must earn a 1.8 to avoid
probation and after 60 hours, a 2.0. A 2.0 grade point average is
required for graduation. Students who do not raise their grades
to a satisfactory level may be suspended from the university after
one semester on probation.
CLASS LOAD
The normal load for all students is 14 to 17 hours each semester.
In order to be considered a full-time student, a student must
register for at least 12 hours. Students must be designated full
time to receive most scholarships and financial aid.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) CALCULATIONS
Grades given at Drury University include A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-,
D+, D, D-, F (failing), U (unsatisfactory) and S (satisfactory). Juniors
and seniors may register for one class each semester on a
Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. A grade of I (incomplete) is
given for incomplete work only if illness or other unavoidable
causes prevent the student from completing the course.
Students must receive permission from the professor to receive a
grade of “I.” A grade of “I” must be removed within six weeks
after the beginning of the semester immediately following the
semester in which the “I” was received, or it will be changed to
an “F.”
CHANGES OF REGISTRATION
A $16 fee is charged after August 28 when a student adds or
drops a class. A change in registration can only be made by
completing an official course change within MyDrury during the
official registration period or by filing an official drop and add
form in the Office of the Registrar. Failure to officially drop a class
a student is not attending will result in a grade of F for the course.
Failure to officially add a class a student is attending will result in
no credit. RESPONSIBILITY FOR DROP OR ADD BELONGS SOLELY TO
THE STUDENT. Telling a professor that he or she no longer plans to
attend class does not drop the student from that class. A student
cannot add a course after August 28 nor drop a course after
that date without receiving a transcript notation of “W“. The
notation “W” is not a grade, and has no bearing on the student’s
grade point average. During the final two weeks of the
semester, students can no longer withdraw from courses and are
committed to receiving grades.
The grade point average is computed only on courses taken at
Drury University:
A
BD+
CLASS ATTENDANCE
There is no class-cut system at Drury. Students are expected to
attend all classes and laboratory sessions for which they are
enrolled. There is no university-wide policy defining conditions
under which an instructor should or should not excuse an
absence. An absence is an individual matter between student
and instructor. Students are encouraged to contact professors
when they are ill or unable to attend class for other reasons.
Failure to attend classes regularly is a primary cause of poor class
performance, particularly on the part of first-year students.

DEAN’S LIST AND HONORS AT GRADUATION
Full-time students with a grade point of 3.6 in a given semester
are included on the Dean’s List. Only grades earned at Drury
University are used to determine honors at graduation, which
include cum laude (3.6 and at least 60 hours in residence,)
magna cum laude (3.75 and at least 60 hours in residence,) and
summa cum laude (3.9 and at least 90 hours in residence). A
degree with honors is awarded to students who maintain high
grades and complete an approved honors project.
GRADE REPORTS
Students can check grades (both midterm and final), course
requirements, and transcripts online through MyDrury. Students
will need their username and password to access this
information.
Information about a student’s grades cannot be discussed with
parents without the student’s consent due to federal privacy
regulations.

The registrar’s office provides students with a variety of services.
These include assisting with registration concerns; assisting with
special coursework (studio, research, internship and directed
study); checking on transfer credits received; checking progress
towards degrees and graduation; providing course booklets and
forms related to Declaration of Major, registration and transcript
requests; determining class rank; giving general campus
information; answering inquiries about dual credit (AP, IB, and
CLEP credits); helping with online degree planning and
registration; as well as picking up and returning request forms to
transfer summer work for another college.
A faculty member advises every student at Drury University.
During the first term, Drury Seminar faculty mentors assist students
with course scheduling and academic advising. In the spring of
the first year, a faculty member in the department of a student’s
major will provide academic advice. Students still exploring
majors can be advised at the Center for Academic Planning,
which will help students select or change advisors if needed.
Academic Advising is most effective when both the student and
advisor work toward a relationship that facilitates open, honest
communication. The faculty advisor’s responsibility is to be
available to advisees and provide up-to-date information. The
student’s responsibility is to seek guidance in course and career
planning.

The Writing Center can help at all stages of the writing process:
prewriting, drafting, revising and polishing. Students should bring
a copy of the class assignment with them to the center. We
encourage students from all disciplines to make use of our
services. While we often help students edit a nearly completed
essay, we can also help those having trouble interpreting an
assignment or getting started. Students should feel free to come
to The Writing Center even before they have written anything.
Sessions are “drop in” only, no appointments. Hours are SundayThursday 3:00-9:00 pm.
Students who have been diagnosed with a learning disability,
physical disability or emotional disability should contact the
Disability Services Office as soon as possible after admission to
the college. Documentation of the disability is required to qualify
for accommodative services. The staff will meet with the student
to discuss the disability and his or her needs as well as to
determine appropriate accommodation.

Students wishing to tutor other students must complete a Tutor
Information Sheet, which includes signatures of faculty members
overseeing classes of fields of study that the student wishes to
tutor. Students requesting a tutor may contact the Office of
Tutoring and Academic Support to obtain the contact
information of students available to tutor in their subject of need.
Days and times of tutoring sessions are scheduled between tutor
and tutee, with the student receiving service paying for tutoring.
A mentor is a faculty member who works with students as
teacher, academic advisor and guide during their first year. At
Drury, this is the CORE 101 professor. Classroom experiences,
individual advising sessions, group activities throughout
orientation and the year, as well as extra or co-curricular
ventures make this program ideal for transitioning from high
school to college.

Students are responsible for keeping track of their hours on a
timesheet, and on the last day of each month, the timesheet is
submitted electronically. Payments are issued on the 15th of

Human Resources provides information and assistance to
students regarding opportunities to work on campus including
work opportunities funded through the federal work study
program. To qualify for student employment, one must be a fulltime day school student enrolled in at least 12 undergraduate
credit hours and have a completed FAFSA form (Financial Aid)
for the current academic year, regardless of financial need.
Federal law requires all employees to complete employment
paperwork prior to beginning on-campus employment.

Internships provide real-world experience to students’ majors
and career goals.
Through internships, students can put
classroom knowledge into practice; gain valuable work
experience and earn college credits. Internships also provide a
great way to network with professionals in the field. Students
can intern in companies and organizations locally, nationally
and internationally. Internships are a critical component of a
student’s academic and professional development as well as
success after graduation. For more information, contact Career

TESTING
The Testing Office provides testing services and resources to
students and departments of the University. Drury administers the
The Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA) to students
as they enter the teacher education program. This exam is
verified for teacher certification in the State of Missouri. Staff also
administer the Miler Analogies Test (MAT) and the residential
ACT. Study guides, resources and sample tests are also available
at the Olin Library on the Drury campus.
COUNSELING
College is a time of change and challenge. Personal concerns
and conflicts can interfere with a student’s ability to learn and to
succeed in college. Free, confidential counseling is available for
students who may need help with study skills, time management,
personal and career decisions, health concerns, stress and
anxiety, conflicts with peers, relationship issues, medical
problems, substance abuse, eating disorders, self-esteem and
issues relating to physical, emotional or sexual abuse or
harassment. Referral to off-campus services is available.
Students come to the Counseling Services office wanting to feel
better about themselves and others. The counselors are trained
to assist people with personal growth, with awareness of self and
environment and with developing the skills students need to
cope with problem situations. We believe that when students
seek another objective perspective through the utilization of
counseling services, that the students are demonstrating
courage and wisdom.
Counseling Services works closely with the medical staff at the
Health Clinic to help make sure that a student’s physical health is

Part of the Drury Strategic Plan is “We will nurture an environment
of inclusion for all persons to build a more culturally and
ethnically diverse campus.” College is a great environment for
students to have an opportunity to learn about people from
different cultures, backgrounds and experiences. To that end,
the Diversity Support Services Office provides programs and
activities that promote and celebrate diversity and inclusion.
One of the primary responsibilities of our office is to help
domestic minorities adjust to campus life (mentoring, advising,
counseling, etc). In addition, we work with faculty, staff and
students who have programs or activities that promote inclusion.
The Diversity Support Services Office is not just for minority
students; anyone part of the Drury community is welcome.

Drury University is related both to the Christian Church (Disciples
of Christ) and to the United Church of Christ. Both church
traditions are committed to an expression of faith that affirms
intellectual inquiry and respects the integrity of different religious
communities. As a result, all religious life programming at the
college is voluntary and ecumenical. The university chaplain
directs a weekly chapel service, assists the “Disciples on
Campus” group for students of the two denominations related to
Drury, creates occasional lectures and workshops on religious
and moral themes, supports religious groups on campus, and
encourages student involvement in community service. Drury
students are invited to participate in a local religious community
of their choice.
RLA seeks to improve the quality of life for all residential students
by serving as an active communication link between residential
students and the Drury community, and providing leadership
experiences and opportunities and diverse programming for the
residential population, both educational and social in nature. All
Drury University residents may serve as RLA legislative board
representatives and executive board members are voted on by

HOUSING POLICY
Drury University recognizes the value of residential living to the
total educational process and therefore requires full-time day
school undergraduate students to live in residential housing or in
fraternity houses.
Once a student moves into a residence, he or she accepts
accommodations and board as a contractual agreement with
the university for the full academic year, or as specified on the
housing contract.
x
To be eligible for campus housing, students must be 17
or older upon Move-In.
x
No one may move in or out of campus housing without
the approval of the Housing Office. Approval is granted
first through the Housing Office, and then it is referred to
the Dean of Students.
x
The Housing Office makes room assignments. While
every effort will be made to assign compatible
individuals, the decision of the Housing Office is final.
The student participant in a housing contract agrees to
accept the roommate(s) assigned to him or her.
x
In case of a vacancy in a double or triple room, the
remaining occupant may elect to pay the private
room fee (if space permits) or the occupant may be
requested to move to another room, or may be
assigned a new roommate. Fraternity houses are NOT
exempt from this policy.
x
Residents may not sublease units and only residents
who have signed contracts are considered legal
occupants.
x
Residence halls and fraternity houses are closed over
fall, Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. Students
without outstanding judicial sanctions may sign up to
stay in their residence. Break housing fees will be
assessed to the student’s account.
x
Students residing in apartment-style housing may stay
during fall, Thanksgiving and spring breaks. Apartmentstyle residents may stay in housing during winter break
only if contracted for the entire academic year.
Students residing in apartment-style housing for just the
fall or spring must move out at the conclusion of their
semester.
x
At the conclusion of the contract, all personal property
must be removed from the residence and the
residence must be cleaned by the deadline
advertised, even if the resident has signed a new
contract and is returning to the same unit at a later
date (see check-out procedures). The university does
not provide storage space.
x
The Housing Office reserves the right to cancel any
housing contract at any time.
EXEMPTION FROM THE HOUSING POLICY
Full-time undergraduate day students who desire to live off
campus for the upcoming academic year must submit a
“Request for Exemption from the University Housing Policy” to the
Housing Office by the advertised deadline. Students aged 21 or
over will receive priority for exemption, but are not guaranteed
exemption. Exemptions may be requested for the following
reasons:
x
x
x
x
x
Student will be 21 or older when the academic year
begins.
Student is married or is a parent. If this is your first
exemption and you are under 21, provide a copy of a
marriage license or birth certificate to verify this
information.
Medical condition that requires special living
accommodations that student housing cannot
reasonably provide. If this is your first medical
exemption, attach doctor’s note describing the
condition and necessary accommodations.
Extenuating circumstances. Attach detailed letter
explaining circumstances.
Student is currently serving or is a veteran of the U.S.
military.
All requests to live off campus will be reviewed by the Housing
Exemption Committee. Permission to live off campus is granted
by the Housing Office via Drury email. Students who do not
receive email approval prior to the start of the academic year
are required to complete a housing contract and reside on
campus for the upcoming academic year. Failure to receive
permission to live off campus through the exemption process
does not release students from the financial obligation of room
and board. Exemptions are only granted by academic year.
Each spring, students must reapply to live off campus prior to
registering for the upcoming summer and/or academic year.
