4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The athletic centers have been recently renovated and hold excellent facilities and amenities. The library is beautiful and ever growing. Campus traditions are unique and well known, such as the Drake relays.

Campus Quality: The Drake Relays is a nationally and world recognized event. Relays events span more than a week long starting with the kick off at street painting. Activities include the Beautiful Bulldog competition, parade, and music. World and Olympic champions as well as college and high school athletes come to compete each year.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The thing I love about Drake campus, is the painted street, and all the things happening in the city around. My favorite place to be outside of campus is definitely all of the independent coffee shops around!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The athletic centers, student centers, and traditions here are fantastic. The library is perfect for last minute studying, and the library and student centers both have little cafe's in them for coffee breaks.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: We have the Drake Relays in the spring, and people come from all over the country and the world to participate. We have a whole week of traditions and activities leading up to the actual relays. There is a sidewalk on campus called the painted sidewalk, and every organization gets a square, and we get together that week to paint the sidewalk. The Greek Life is also much different from other schools in that it is not as competitive and much more supportive than other schools I have visited.
