Three interesting things about Ali:
Why do you love Drake? The sense of community. It’s such a special place and it just feels like everyone here really gets how lucky they are to be a part of it.
What is your favorite thing about Des Moines? It has everything you'd expect a capital city to have, but on a scale that doesn't feel intimidating or overwhelming. I also love the Broadway shows that come here.
Advice for prospective students: Start researching schools early. Visit different types in the beginning, even if you think you know what type you’re looking for, it’s still good to see a variety so you can feel confident when you do make your choice. Also, take ownership and responsibility for the application process. Your parents won’t be able to do everything for you in college, so it’s good practice to start doing important things on your own before you go!
