3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: About 50% of the student population is a member of the Greek life. I have been invited but chose to participate in a service fraternity instead.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Whether you drink or not, there are plenty of places to go and socialize on campus, as well as off.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: So far I have had a great experience.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The strictness is just what I expected it to be, and what it should be to allow us to study and pursue our goals.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety for every taste level

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are plenty of things to do-from shopping, minor league sports teams, parks, and museums. There is a wide variety of places to dine out.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My program of study is one of the areas my school is known for. The connections for gaining internships and jobs are incredible.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our teams try hard but struggle. Our facilities could be larger for the size of school it is.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Excellent choices within 2 block radius of the campus. Affordable and offers a meal plan through the colleege even if you live off campus

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Things to do but they aren't very exciting. The bars are easy to get into but they get more crowded and boring the more you go

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Big dorm rooms but the RAs are very strict on underage drinking

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless network is spotty a lot

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Usually a lot of muggings at the off campus bars

1 College Freshman

Athletics: I live right by the football stadium and I still never know when there's a game going on. No one goes

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They are very strict about drinking on campus which was pretty annoying

4 College Freshman

Majors: The pharmacy program is pretty selective. You have to wait a while to hear back on acceptance.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The pharmacy program is a lot of work but manageable. Best part about the school. Easy to find a job.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: They usually throw lame parties.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Jethro's is the place to go. Not many vegetarian options around the campus though.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is limited diversity on the campus. Most students are of the same race and economic status.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is used by the whole area, not just Drake students, so it was common to share it with sketchy people.

2 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It's very near the city but there aren't really any things to do besides shopping for students.

3 College Student

Diversity: There are a lot of a specific nationality (Malaysian) but not much else. All about the same economic status.

4 College Student

Majors: It's challenging enough to weed out people that don't want to be there. The process is fairly average for a college admission form.
