5 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are challenging but fair. They do a good job preparing us for our future careers with both knowledge and wisdom.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are fantastic. They do everything in their power to help you out whenever you need help and most of their doors are open to you if you just want to chat. There are a lot of different options for curriculum, as Drake offers a variety of majors and minors, and it is fairly simple to pick up a double/triple major or minor. I've heard about slight confusion with freshmen with the registration process, but it seems relatively simple for the upperclassmen. Its college, so the workload tends to be heavy no matter what the involvement, if the work is done right. There are a number of special study options, including tutors in most subjects, faculty to assist those with learning disabilities, and there are at least 2 study areas per building at Drake.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My program incorporates the hard sciences: biology, chemistry, and a little physics. I have a heavy workload for a freshman, as my science classes and labs are study and work-intensive. The facilities are good, with access to the scientific necessities (spectrophotometers, pipets and micropipets, etc) as well as study rooms, and tutor and teacher appointments. My class specific to my major, BCMB encourages and informs me about internship opportunities in Des Moines and abroad, and Drake as a school encourages students to apply for internships as a freshman.
