    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!

    Drake has great opportunities to build up your academic portfolio and then go on for internships, such as Meredith Publishing Company right in Des Moines! The university has a wide selection of majors that would benefit and behoove a student to double major in. The overall feel of the school was pleasant.

    Drake is a 4.2 out of 5. The classes are small and there are good one-on-one teacher interactions. The campus is small and you get to know a lot of people as well.
