Learning through service

“Through my sorority on campus I have had the opportunity to do service work at the Ronald McDonald House. Being able to give back to the Greater Des Moines area has really cemented my love for Drake and made it feel even more like home!”

Personal mentorship

“We are very lucky at Drake to have faculty that care about you as a person rather than just as a student. Because our class sizes are on-average so small, they notice when something is off, or when one of their students isn’t in class. They know about our personal lives, and they know that we have a lot to balance as the ‘Drake busy’ has created a culture of hard work in all areas.”

Flexibility to explore interests

“Drake has taught me to think in ways that I’ve never even thought about before. I took the J-term course ‘Humans of the Drake Neighborhood’ and learned about community structure, community building, and historical patterns that relate to metropolitan areas. It helped us understand the Drake neighborhood and why it exists as it does today.”

Building a great resume

“I received an internship with Habitat for Humanity during my first year at Drake that allowed me to work on skills necessary for my career. I created a training manual that will be used by hundreds of volunteers. It is amazing to think that with only one year of college experience, I’ve already created and produced work that will be used by hundreds of people.”

onpaintedstreet Spent this morning, with my sorors driving all over the place (we got lost), but eventually we made it to a Habitat for Humanity build site! The focus of our sorority is community service, and this is one of the many ways we do so! ❤️
