3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I mean most kids drink that I know of. Not many kids dont drink at all

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Off campus is the more frightening part of Drake. We are in the middle of what is known as a Ghetto. There are police sirens constantly all week long. There is always some sort of crime happening

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The alumni network is big here (they have a house for their club). Their are tons of employers that recruit from all over the place. I have never used the career center so I am not sure about that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are great. They are small but allow you to get to know the professor better and you can ask questions easier. There are many different courses offered and very different class styles. The professors are well educated but some are very tough. You really need to study well at this school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are so much nicer than most schools. Our bathrooms are cleaned everyday on the weekdays and they custodial staff is super nice. The halls coordinate events that are actually fun.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love greek life. It is my favorite thing about Drake so far. I have met so many people through greek life. All my friends are involved and the friends that are not wish they were. We volunteer and get internships/jobs a lot easier because of the connections we make. The parties are a blast as well.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our varsity sports are not the best at all. They are not many fans at the football games. A pretty small student section. The intramural teams are huge for student though. Lots of kids play in them or just go and watch their friends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Drake. I am involved in the Student Activities Board and I am in a Sorority. The classes are really hard and more advanced than most schools.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Drake recently inaugurated a new president. One of the first things he did on campus was work on security on campus and in the surrounding community. His focus is on students safety and has updated safety procedures on Drake campus. I have never felt unsafe on campus during the day or late at night. Public safety is almost always visible and they are super friendly people. Safety is a big concern for every student on Drake campus and fellow students look out for each other.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are usually very interesting and the professors are very engaging during lecture. You can find all types of courses that you are interested in and advisors work to help you fit these classes into your schedule. Also professors are very helpful inside and outside of class at answering questions and helping student better comprehend the material. The class size are usually small except for your major lectures such as intro to business, chemistry, and biology.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost everyone does an internship at some point while attending Drake. These internships are all over the world and are very easy to gain access to. Also, 98% of students who graduate either have a job or an acceptance to a graduate school in the 1st 6 months post graduation. Graduates are also very successful in their careers and willing to help current students.

Campus Housing: The dorms are quite spacious and have air condition! There is a large lobby with a t.v. and fireplace that allows everyone to socialize and study together. There is also a study room where students who like a quiet study space are able to focus and do their work. The bathrooms are cleaned everyday and their is a good number of bathroom stalls and showers meaning you never have to wait in line. Everyone on campus is super friendly and it is easy to meet new people and make friends. Also, the food on campus is always close to the housing making it convenient and easy to get to if you're in a rush.

Greek Life: I am not apart of Greek life, however, the fraternities and sororities do great things for the campus and surrounding communities. They're all very welcoming to everyone and hold events that everyone is invited to attend. Almost every fraternity and sorority has a house on campus that juniors and seniors are welcome to live n.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in a freshman dorm so they're nicer then the upperclassmen dorms, so I guess I'll see next year how I feel.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My boyfriend is in a fraternity and I'm not in a sorority, while the frats don't look down, the sororities do.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: While sports are essential at Drake, we shouldn't, and don't, revolve around them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school, but sometimes I wish things were spread out a bit more.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While somewhat expensive, campus housing is cost effective for the time saved.
