Three interesting things about Lilianna:
Why do you love Drake? I initially fell in love with the University as a prospective high school student. Back then, I loved Drake because of its size, personal attention, and the beautiful campus; As a Drake student, I continued to love Drake because it offered me so many opportunities, friendships, and experiences. As an alum, I still love Drake for all the same reasons I have in the past, but my perspective now is that I can reflect and say, "Wow, look at much Drake changed my life!"
Favorite thing to do in Des Moines: The downtown Farmer's Market in the Court Avenue District (Saturdays from 7AM-noon; May-October). I grew up in Chicago and found that Des Moines has pretty much everything to do that Chicago has, but the Downtown Farmers Market is truly a uniquely Des Moines experience.
Advice for prospective students: The best way to know if Drake is the right fit for you is to experience a day here! Visit and tour the campus, meet a faculty member, explore Des Moines and talk to current students!
