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 Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for career and internship prospects. The biggest part to it is that network that Drake provides, classmates, professors, alumni, on campus employers, ect.

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.
