“I wasn’t surprised to hear that Drury ranked high,” said Army Veteran and Drury student, Brent Wilkinson. “I can’t give the staff at Drury enough kudos – the knowledge they have is incredible. Tammie (Drury advisor) has helped so many veterans come into the school and she made surethat everything I did was in line with the VA (Veteran’s Affairs).”
Earlier this year, Drury was ranked 8th among Midwest Regional Universities in the publication U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2014.
