What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the Drake community and the Drake neighborhood. I am about seven hours away from home and Drake has helped me feel welcome and that I belong here on campus. I have made tons of friends already and continue to find more people on campus. Drake has a great variety of programs to choose from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred from Iowa State and I'm glad that I did. I really enjoy the smaller class sized and the amount of effort that the professors put into the course in order to aid the students. However, I have found that there are fewer activities on campus due to it being a smaller school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drake University is an amazing place to be, especially if you are interested in politics! I am a member of Young Democrats, work at the Harkin Institute, am on committees at the Roosevelt Institute, and have had the opportunity to hear several Presidential candidates speak. There are also several other activities you can be involved in. I am a DJ on our campus radio station, and I recently joined a social fraternity that emphasizes scholarship and volunteerism. The class sizes are perfect! No large lecture halls, and the professors know you by name. They are easily accessible, and they work with you because they want you to do well. If you are looking for a small college with ample opportunities for growing into the person you want to be, Drake is the place for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A great school that wants students to succeed in all areas of life, especially academically. There is a lot of things to do on campus and off campus that offer a wide variety for interests of all types. The facilities on campus are new and great. Drake really strives to be one of the top schools not only in the state, but in the country!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Based on the unique opportunities the school provides, I chose Drake University. I saw my sisters journey through Drake, and I knew that it was the school for me. My sister was able to graduate in 3 years, minimizing college debt; she was sought out to receive a full-ride to Drake Law; through her involvement, she was able to build connections with professors and gain new networks throughout Des Moines. From personally viewing her success, I knew that if I could gain similar opportunities to her, I would be unstoppable in my future. I have been able to work with the staff to create a schedule where I can graduate within 3 years, which will save me over $30,000. Due to the hands-on staff, and strong opportunities, I am proud I am a Bulldog.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like the school they have a great program in my area of interests and professors are very accessible. Class sizes are smaller so I don't feel like a number and professor better gets to know the students. The food is okay, but there are a few close places off campus. The dorms are pretty nice. They are up to date and fairly large for dorm rooms. However, they can get really humid and musty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Drake! There are so many clubs and sports for the students to participate in. It is very easy for students to be involved, and is strongly encouraged that you do so. There is always some kind of event going on to keep the students busy. The class size makes it easy for the students to get to know their professors and excel in whatever it is that they are doing.
