“There are very few universities that have opportunities or even allow their undergraduates to get heavily involved in research. But Drake has given me the opportunity to work in a 1-on-1 setting with faculty members on my own research project and collaborate on larger initiatives, as well.”
—Noah Skantz, Senior, College of Arts and Sciences
