Are you excited by the idea of learning by doing? At Drake, we focus on real, hands-on projects. We take learning beyond the act of listening and put ideas into action. And we offer a rigorous academic experience, with high-quality instruction and high standards of achievement.
Are you looking for the strengths of a midsized university? At Drake, that means small classes and personal attention on the one hand, and lots of choices on the other—whether it’s more than 70 programs of study, 160 clubs or the thrill of a Division I Athletics program.
Do you like the feeling that you are part of something special? The Drake community is close, strong, and full of pride. In part, this comes from our shared traditions. In part, it’s Midwestern friendliness. And in the end, it adds up to a school spirit you just can’t miss.
Do you believe that bulldogs are beautiful? Ok, this one is not essential. However, if you find yourself answering “yes” to the other questions about Drake, you should at least keep an open mind when it comes to the wrinkly charm of our beloved mascot.
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we’d like to hear from you. And as you discover Drake, we’re here to support you through every step of the process, from planning your visit to completing your application.
