Drury University is crediting new recruitment efforts with higher enrollment to start the 2017-2018 school year. President Tim Cloyd told the Springfield New-Leader earlier this month the number of traditional undergraduate students is expected to top 1,400. That would be nearly 50 students more than the previous year.

I am being transported into another world through the use of a head mounted display (HMD), moving about a computer-generated building created by a second-year architecture student. David Beach, assistant professor of architecture at Drury University, explains this is just one of the many innovative techniques used as part of a program where students can virtually navigate their own designs.

The Debate Program at Drury University, while only a year old, recently won first place at the National Debate Tournament. We spoke with the team to learn more about the group and its success.

Drury Debater Lindsey Duede takes a firm position on foreign relations in a mock debate during a practice session with her teammates. While this program been around a short time, there’s a keen sense of comradery between the roughly 10 group members.

Charles DeBerry is a professor of communication and the director of the Drury Debate program.

“The Angry Electorate” was the topic of a lecture at Drury Tuesday by a political science professor at Carroll University.

Dr. Lilly Goren said one outcome of negative campaigning is an angry electorate.  Another is the more or less permanent nature of campaigning in the U.S., helped by the 24-hour news cycle and social media.
