Some choose to delve deep into religion, schoolwork and internships, while others find different outlets for their new liberty such as alcohol consumption.
If you can do all of those things, well, kudos to you.
Drake is a party school. It’s not so much that its students run rampantly drunk across campus every evening, but more that it’s a college.
No, we don’t party hard and there’s not an overabundance of frat stars campus wide, but as with most things worthy of participating in, alcohol is typically involved.
There are plenty of fraternity and sport houses to chill at if a good time is needed.
Also, with well-known and highly respected establishments such as The Dublin, Peggy’s and West End so close and accessible to students — only of age, of course- – it’s no wonder that Drake students have a good time.
There’s mug night and twofers at Peggy’s, five-dollar holler at The Dublin and other various specials that run year-round.
So, not only do students seek a good time, but also it is priced just perfectly for a college student budget. Cheers to that.
Drake students know how to have a good time and for that I’m proud.
I love the funny Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning stories (sometimes even Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and for those on the walk of shame — I applaud you.
What makes me most proud of my school, however, is that come Monday morning, most, if not all, are in class, and we do a pretty fantastic job. So, kudos to you, Drake University, for attracting and choosing the best students around.
I salute you.
