Three interesting things about Matt:

  1. In June of 2012, I married my wife in front of Old Main on Drake’s campus. We were told that we are the only people to have been married in front of Old Main.
  2. I play sand volleyball, softball, indoor volleyball, flag football, play in a bowling league, and do trivia on Tuesday nights. I have voted myself as the MVP in every league and sport that I play in!
  3. My best friend is a dog named Dexter.

Why do you love Drake? I met all my best friends at Drake. My friends, and the Drake community as a whole, have always made me feel at home.

What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines? I love to grab dinner with friends on the weekend, and then follow that up with an Iowa Cubs or Des Moines Buccaneers game.

Advice for prospective students: Make a decision you are comfortable with. Also, make sure to ask appropriate questions so you can make a well-informed decision for yourself.
