Why do you love Drake?

I love Drake because it’s a school well-fit for a student that wants to study multiple areas. I absolutely love learning and Drake allows students to explore multiple interests and desires while still having around a 90% four-year graduation rate.

What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?

To see how many local restaurants I can eat at in one evening. I live regionally in Texas, so when I return to campus it’s a personal task to eat at as many incredible Des Moines restaurants as I can before I return home.
