Drew graduated from Tufts University with a BA in Greek and Latin (cum laude). He received highest honors for his senior thesis Speech and Narrative in Thucydides’ Histories, which explored questions of narratology and authorial intent. He also received the Zarker Award for Excellence in Classical Studies. In 2017 he won the Classical Association of New England’s Katz Prize for his paper Gallic Identity in Caesar’s Bellum Gallicum, which he then presented at the 2017 CANE meeting. He also gave a presentation at CAMWS 2016 on a panel about the Perseus Treebank, entitled New Approaches to Old Problems: Applying New Technologies to Classical Language Learning.
