Learning through service

“Through my sorority on campus I have had the opportunity to do service work at the Ronald McDonald House. Being able to give back to the Greater Des Moines area has really cemented my love for Drake and made it feel even more like home!”

Personal mentorship

“My biggest mentor has been Meghan Blancas Baeza, who is director of student leadership programs. She helps lead the Donald V Adams Leadership Institute, which I joined in my sophomore year, and we really connected. She has helped me see myself in leadership, like my current position as Drake student body president, while also helping me deeply connect to my identity as a leader and how being Latina and a woman influence that. She’s played a pivotal role in my experience.”

Flexibility to explore interests

“Drake has taught me to think in ways that I’ve never even thought about before. I took the J-term course ‘Humans of the Drake Neighborhood’ and learned about community structure, community building, and historical patterns that relate to metropolitan areas. It helped us understand the Drake neighborhood and why it exists as it does today.”

Building a great resume

“I received an internship with Habitat for Humanity during my first year at Drake that allowed me to work on skills necessary for my career. I created a training manual that will be used by hundreds of volunteers. It is amazing to think that with only one year of college experience, I’ve already created and produced work that will be used by hundreds of people.”

onpaintedstreet It took me a while, but I finally chose something to post for #TBT! Throwing it back to summer of 2013 when I travelled to Uganda with a group of Drake students and faculty. We were partnered with students from Makerere University Business School, doing research on sustainable development- and I made a bunch of great friends along the way, including this little guy. #Uganda #bulldogswithoutborders


onpaintedstreet Hi ya folks! My name is Peyton Johnson, sophomore BFA Musical Theatre and Digital Media Production double major with a concentration in Leadership. I'm from Aurora, Illinois but it's my pleasure to be serving as a CRA in Morehouse for my first summer in Des Moines. I've been jam packed with adventures from working the Drake Diner to late night exploring with friends, and I'm super excited to share
