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

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball games are more popular among seniors and Greek life. Greek life is in huge attendance, but otherwise people mostly go for the giveaways and leave.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Drake Relay's are the biggest sporting event that Drake has. Students are heavily involved and so is the community, it is the only sporting event that really gets attention.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Drake is a Division 1 school. However, events are not well attend like larger state schools. As a student athlete many opportunities are available to me. We have wonderful facilities and team support. The coaching staff can be rather intense as is expected from D1, but everyone involved cares about the athletes and their personal and athletic success.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have only been in the facilities once, but what I saw was amazing, definitely well funded!
