After Drake University
- Very Good346
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.

Drake University is an amazing school! It is my home away from home. I have been given wonderful opportunities that have helped to enhance my education and given me more experience in the field of marketing. The professors are extremely friendly and want their students to succeed. I found my best friends through my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. I have been able to work on the athletic marketing team at Drake, which is the path I want to go down in my career. I love Drake University and am proud to be a bulldog!

The people that you live with really do become your best friends! So far almost everyone I've met has been really friendly and is willing to talk. The residence halls are great and the RAs put on great programs like one about different cultures and how things are different everywhere you go. My classes teach me a lot. For example we learned about genetics and how the different genes can work togeher in ways that have different results eaxh time. I feel like I am getting my money's worth when I am learning a lot and engaging with others in class and outside of the classroom.
