    It is very easy to adjust to living at Drake because in the first-year dorms, they focus on creating programs so that you can find ways to remain active in campus life at Drake. It is a positive learning environment and all of the possible resources necessary to succeed are provided. My favorite thing about Drake is the close relationship you grow to have with your professors and how easy it is to stand out. They are very willing to help, even outside of the classroom. Definitely utilize office hours, tutoring opportunities, and the library.

    Always consider what the college will do for you. A student can acquire a decent education at many colleges. However, if a college can help you find that job (which the College of Business has over 99% placement) that is an incredibly valuable attribute to consider.

    Drake University, located in Des Moines, Iowa, offers a range of student activities. The Donald V. Adams Leadership Institute offers courses, workshops, and leadership opportunities for students throughout the year. Among the 150 or so student organizations are Colleges Against Cancer, a campus newspaper, and a number of club and intramural sports teams, including broomball, racquetball, sports trivia, and team tennis. A sizeable Greek community encompasses about a dozen fraternities and sororities. Drake provides housing in its eight residence halls, and the majority of students choose to remain on campus all four years. The Drake Bulldogs compete primarily in the Division I Missouri Valley Conference.
