It's been a great pleasure to be entrusted the role of blogging about student life at Drake. There are thousands of students and each has a very unique and lively story to tell. From first year students adjusting to the college experience and having a ton of new experiences to seniors, pharmacy students, and law students who are pursuing their next big thing, Drake is a place where new and exciting things happening.
I’ve heard it before from President Maxwell, and it rings truer than ever. Drake is more than a university, more than a place where students go to find a job, but a place where students go to become the kinds of people they are going to be for a lifetime. They interact with people and participate in the kinds of things that shape them. They play an interactive role in creating the foundation of what their life will hold. That’s been my experience. If you want to do it, and you can dream it, then start at Drake.
Blogging has helped me become a better writer and a better student. It has challenged me to do things I wouldn't normally do because I thought there could be a story there to share. I have worked to find content that is richly entertaining and helpful as you assess your college options and find a place to call home for four, six or seven years. It’s my hope that these posts over the last six years have provided you windows in to the Drake University lifestyle and what kind of a place Drake really is. The adjectives that could be used to describe a day at Drake are infinite, but college is more than that. And that’s what you’ll find in these posts.
It’s been a pleasure to serve you as a blogger, I hope you’ve found reading these posts as entertaining as I have in writing them. This is Drake.
