3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have some very successful sports teams on campus, but students tend to have so many other options to choose from that sports are left in the dust. Student's who attend sporting events never regret it, they're great fun with plenty of free stuff and games that can be played for bigger prizes. Relays are the biggest sporting event on campus, everyone goes out for the two weeks that lead up to relays each spring and its a great time on campus.

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.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone participates in intramural sports which allows people to be active and have fun. The games are scheduled around the teams schedule and are well officiated. No one cares if they win or lose they are just there to take a study break and have fun.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It all looks great but I haven't had a lot of personal experience with it.

5 College Sophomore

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