When is the best time to visit Drake University?

Visiting Drake University depends on a number of factors, including the season, your schedule, and a lot of uncontrollable variables. We recommend you visit Drake University twice if you’re serious about enrolling – at least one visit should be when students are on campus and school is in session. Be sure to take note of the town of Des Moines as well. Remember that Des Moines is also catering to 3269 students, so think critically about whether the community would feel too big or too small for your personal liking.
