People tend to check in during these times:
Great campus. Clean & friendly
Get fucked up at all four campus bars!
Drake frequently hosts the Presidential Primary Debates leading up to the Iowa Caucus.
During the summer, campus is nice to walk or bike around at night. There is nobody around and you can run through the sprinklers.
Try to find all the bulldog statues around campus.
Students- apply to be a summer orientation leader. It is by far my favorite Drake experience.
If you plan on being on campus after 10PM, park in the Olmsted lot! The ticket booth closes and you don't have to pay.Also free on weekends!
Go to Stalnaker and head to the 3rd floor, you'll always have a party!
Eat breakfast. Or at least a reasonable amount of food. This will keep you from passing out at work or in class later. That's no fun.
Best school ever.
Get your D+ education at Drake University!
Meet new people: Call each of Drake's 2,746 phones, one by one, and strike up a conversation. (At one phone a day, this will take you 7.5 years.)
Don't pay to register your car. Illegally park, watch the drake tickets roll in. But don't worry, you'll never have to pay.
