    DRAKES FACULTY MEMBERS WORK HARD TO INVOLVE THEMSELVESWITH STUDENTS ON A PERSONAL LEVEL BOTH IN THE CLASSROOMAS TEACHERS AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM AS MENTORS.

    FUELING DESIRES: Restore prairie grasses

    for biology class. Design a business plan

    for a local restaurant. Study renaissance

    art in Italy. Drakes diverse academic

    opportunities will engage, change and

    challenge your mind in an active and

    supportive environment and they wont

    confine you to the classroom. You will

    acquire knowledge by testing and

    practicing it on campus and in the real

    world. You will learn and work with other

    students and faculty in a variety of

    settings, from small classes and laborato-

    ries to e-mail discussions and seminars in

    other countries.

    You will get your hands dirty, your

    assumptions challenged and your mind

    opened to new perspectives and

    opportunities. You will learn by doing. In

    the process, you will equip yourself

    to succeed in your own way in a fast-

    moving world.

    LEARN FROM THE BEST: More than 95

    percent of Drakes faculty hold the highest

    degrees in their field. And they not

    teaching assistants are the ones who

    will teach and inspire you. Youll be guided

    by professors who hand out their home

    telephone numbers on the first day of

    class. They will interact with you inside

    and outside of the classroom. Theyll be

    there to support you not only during

    your college years, but as friends

    and mentors who will celebrate your

    achievements long after the ink is dry on

    your diploma.

    STIMULATING AND RELEVANT CLASSES

    PHARMACY MAJOR TODD THUC PHAM

  • HIT THE GROUND RUNNINGTHE DRAKE CURRICULUM, a general education

    curriculum required of all undergraduates, gives

    you diverse choices across 10 academic areas of

    inquiry. In your first year, you will work with your

    faculty advisor to create a rigorous, individualized

    plan to help you achieve your educational and

    career goals. If youre undecided on your major,

    the Drake Curriculum will give you a taste of

    different disciplines while helping you fulfill

    academic requirements. As part of the Drake

    Curriculum, all first-year students choose a First-

    Year Seminar. These interactive, interdisciplinary

    courses will immediately engage you in topics

    such as globalization, genetics, alternative

    medicine, poverty, extraterrestrial intelligence,

    and race in film and fiction. In most First-Year

    Seminars, students also live on the same

    residence hall floor together.

    The Honors Program is designed for qualified

    students who seek challenging, discussion-based

    courses on interdisciplinary and topical issues as

    well as learning experiences outside class.

    Honors classes are small and span several

    disciplines and approaches to learning.

    GLOBAL THINKING: The Drake University Language

    Acquisition Program (DULAP) offers a unique

    approach to language studies. Through the

    customized, one-on-one sessions of DULAPs

    Directed Independent Language Study (DILS)

    program, the Language Across the Curriculum

    (LAC) program and Drakes study abroad program,

    students have the opportunity to design their own

    approach to language acquisition.

    Drake Universitys Center for Global Citizenship

    prepares students for responsible global citizenship,

    teaches them to function effectively in different

    cultural contexts and see their own culture from

    the perspective of others. Through academic

    programming, faculty development, international

    initiatives and community outreach, the Center

    ensures that global perspectives and issues are an

    integral part of the intellectual and cultural expe-

    rience of all members of the Drake community.
