What can your Drew Card get you?

by Caitlin Shannon, Student Life & Arts Editor

It’s impossible to live on campus without your Drew ID card between getting into buildings, buying coffee and swiping in to eat at the Commons. Everyone knows that your Drew ID is your ticket to life in The Forest, but what can your ID get you outside of the 183 acre campus that we call home? Even when you leave campus your ID card is important to have with you if you wanna save some money. Whether in Madison, at the Short Hills Mall or online your Drew ID can score you some deals and save you some cash.

Madison Deals:

  • Dunkin Donuts: Present your ID when you order at Dunkin Donuts in Madison and get a 10% student discount on your coffee.
  • Madison Pharmacy: Got a cold? You can get a 10% student discount at The Madison Pharmacy and get your medications delivered to campus for free.  
  • Nautilus Diner: Show your ID and get 10% off your meal.  Perfect for those Saturday nights when you’re really craving some disco fries but your bank account is running low.
