Life at Drake is an adventure. As a student here, you will make new friends, uncover new talents and interests, and blaze the trail to your future. That’s just what happens when you live your life on a campus full of energy and opportunity, great traditions and inspiring people.
What can you do at Drake?
Along the way, make sure you enjoy all the wonderful experiences that don’t fit in any particular category—except maybe the category of Great Future Memories. Eat a midnight pre-exam breakfast cooked by your professors. Enjoy some competitive broomball. Or take part in the world’s largest-ever cream pie fight (if we decide to break the record again).
It’s all here waiting to be experienced.
