Three interesting things about Rachelle:
Why do you love Drake? I love Drake because of the people that make up the Drake Community – it is truly like family.
What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines? I love the outdoors so I enjoy being active at Grey’s Lake, Sands Volleyball Club, Witmer Park, and the trail systems.
Advice for prospective students: As you are going through your college search you need to ask these questions: How long until I graduate? When will I start courses in my major? How flexible is the general education curriculum? How much will it cost including scholarships and need based aid? What opportunities are available for involvement? What are the benefits the city gives where the school is located? Are there internship opportunities? Once in college, immerse yourself in the campus and get involved. You will only have your first undergraduate college experience once, so take advantage of all you can!
