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 Hey there, my name is Ashley Blazek, but you can call me “Blaze” if you’d like, and I’m a junior PR Major from Fargo, ND. I am a lover of people, JIF peanut butter and Drake University. I’d love to grab a cup of coffee sometime, but we’ll start with this week together On Painted Street. Buckle up, because this week will be full of Student Alumni Association festivities. Go Bulldogs! -

onpaintedstreet Seeing as I am living in Barcelona for quite a while, eating out for every meal is definitely not financially possible. As a result, finding cheap but delicious food is essential. Luckily, the IES center where I have classes Monday-Thursday is a short walk from the famous La Boquería market. It has become a major tourist attraction, but it is also a fully functional market and has a huge variety
