The Drake neighborhood is one of only a few neighborhoods in Des Moines that boasts an institution of higher learning within it's boundaries. This makes the neighborhood unique, offering the opportunity of that special "College Town" vibe. As a center point for the neighborhood, both physically and culturally, Drake University is a vital part of the surrounding neighborhood and it's identity. We seek to be a "destination" within the neighborhood, offering ample opportunities for cultural engagement, sporting events, and lecture series, and hope you will consider being our guest!
