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.

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.

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.

5 College Freshman

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 Freshman

Campus Housing: I think there could be a better way of doing random assignment, maybe a more specific questionnaire. Other than that, it is pretty great. The RA staff are phenomenal; even when I was having issues with my old roommate, the dorm life remained great and the RA's and community were welcoming and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone is supportive of each other, even if they are not into sports and don't pay attention. I think that represents the holistic being of our school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: each program is designed to each particular student, so you can practically make your major.
