Looking to get involved? Have a problem you need help resolving? Want to help improve campus? The Division of Student Affairs should be your first stop. We oversee nearly all aspects of the student experience, and your wellbeing is our priority.  

The Broadlawns Community Clinic at Drake houses both our Student Counseling Center and Student Health Services.  Students have the ability to utilize this clinic and no co-pay is needed.  In addition, Uwill allows our students timely, virtual counseling 24/7/365, including a 24/7 crisis hotline staffed by licensed crisis therapists. 

If you live on campus, you will find support and opportunities to get involved through Residence Life.  Our goal is to ensure a welcoming, safe and social living-learning environment for all our residential students and their guests. 

If wellness, nutrition, and competition are what you are looking for while at Drake, Recreational Services is the place for you.  Recreational Services' innovative co-curricular programs and offerings serve to provide a connecting link between students and the University experience.

Check out the Office of Student Inclusion, Involvement and Leadership to get involved in social, multicultural, recreational, prevention, and leadership activities on campus.  Drake continues to outperform peer institutions by providing opportunities to be involved socially as indicated in our latest National Survey on Student Engagement (NSSE) and Drake Student Survey.

The Adams Leadership Institute (ALI) is a leadership development program offered to undergraduate students at Drake University. Incoming students who apply and are admitted to the Institute gain exclusive access to personalized leadership training, co-curricular skill development, and career preparation that enhance their personal, academic, and professional lives.

Almost one-third of our undergraduate population is active in our Fraternity and Sorority Life at Drake.  Our system is different in that members of the FSL community are not just Greek but are involved in so much more.
