Why do you love Drake?
I love Drake because you get the best of both worlds of a small and big school. Students get personalized attention in their academics and get to know their fellow classmates outside of the classroom. Then students can get all the benefits of living in a large city like Des Moines, from exploring miles of hiking trails to getting internships at some big-name companies like Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft!
What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?
My favorite thing to do in Des Moines is explore the city and check out all the different stores and local restaurants.
