Drake University Reviews
Review Drake University
Drake University is a fabulous establishment! The University has small class sizes, a great professor to student ratio, the professors are very accessible and truly want to see their students succeed in college and in life.
Students are not accepting or open to new people or ideas. The professors and faculty are great and very helpful. I feel as if I am getting a good education for the amount that I am paying. Scholarship opportunities are great. The students are some of the cliquiest, most close-minded people I have ever met. If you are not interested in drinking and partying, there is nothing to do on campus during the week or on the weekends. The only organizations that have events are Greek organizations. The dining is awful and I have gotten food poisoning from it twice in the year I have been here. The area surrounding the campus is very dangerous. Shootings are not uncommon in the blocks surrounding campus.
The dorms are quite spacious and have air condition! There is a large lobby with a t.v. and fireplace that allows everyone to socialize and study together. There is also a study room where students who like a quiet study space are able to focus and do their work. The bathrooms are cleaned everyday and their is a good number of bathroom stalls and showers meaning you never have to wait in line. Everyone on campus is super friendly and it is easy to meet new people and make friends. Also, the food on campus is always close to the housing making it convenient and easy to get to if you're in a rush.
