I feel like I didn't learn anything in high school, but I love college! At Drake I feel like the professors really teach you the material and most make it interesting!

    It has a pretty nice campus, but it's not perfect. There was below average food by the university but good restaurants around. I met a very cute bulldog so I was pleased.

    Drake University has become my home away from home. It has become a place were I can grow as an individual to better myself and achieve my goals and prepare for the next step in pursuing my education. Every student that I have met has been able to contribute to making the Drake community stronger and more passionate about each other and our campus.

    There is no university the prepares you better for life after college. The School of Business urges all students to find internships and events off of campus to create a network of professionals in your field. You will not be disappointed.

    Drake is an amazing place to continue your education and start the rest of your life. I have made so many amazing friends here, been involved with lots of fun and helpful organizations, and I have had the privilege of being taught by some fantastic professors. Not to mention, the living conditions and security around campus are FANTASTIC, and Des Moines is a fun place to be!
