How it works: First, think of an idea. Second, get in a team of 2 to 4 people. Once you have an idea and team set, register online by following the link below. On event day, your team will have a maximum of 10 minutes to present to the five judges and convince them that your idea is worth investing in. Winner of the Project Bulldog $500 grand prize will be chosen based on criteria found at the link below - no strings attached. More information can be found at: Teams can register at:
Admission Saturday Visit Program [Admission]
09:30 AM - 12:00 PM @ Old Main (Levitt Hall) - The campus (and most students) are usually fast asleep on Saturday mornings, but if you don't mind the quiet, this can be a great opportunity to check out Drake. Fall Saturday programs include an admission and financial aid overview, a Q&A with Drake students, and a campus tour. Spring Saturday programs are the same for sophomores and juniors, but high school seniors are scheduled with individual admission counselor appointments and campus tours. Everyone who visits on a Saturday is welcome to stay after the program for brunch in our dining hall (when Drake students begin waking).
