Three interesting things about Lindsey:

  1. I have a collection of movie ticket stubs.
  2. I have double-jointed thumbs.
  3. I was lucky enough to take a trip to England and Scotland with my sister last year.

Why do you love Drake? The first impression I had, even before my first day of work, was that everyone on campus—students, faculty and staff—are so incredibly friendly and helpful. Also, the flexibility and variety students have inside and outside of the classroom at Drake is incredible.

What is your favorite thing about Des Moines? I grew up in a small town, so there are a lot of things I love about Des Moines. The skyline is beautiful, especially at night. There are numerous places to shop—my favorite is Jordan Creek Mall. And there are so many great places to eat, and plenty of healthy options too! 

Advice for prospective students: Visit the colleges/universities that you’re interested in (a website can only tell you so much). And try your best to stay off your phone while visiting. Really take a good look at the campus, and ask current students a lot questions about what it’s like to be a student.
