At Drake, learning can be much more than a classroom experience. Joining an academic organization is an effective way to enhance your education. Collaborate with classmates on research and professional projects, test your knowledge and skills against students from other colleges and universities, develop professional connections with experts who work in your field of study, and delve deeper into your interests than you ever thought possible.
Most of the academic groups listed below are tied to national professional organizations with a vast network of members, guest speakers, and other experts. Campus groups are led by students, but overseen by faculty members to ensure participants are getting the most out of their involvement.
