I really enjoy the pharmacy program at Drake University. The small school allows for you to make personal connections with your teachers that may not be present at a large university. It also allows you to get really involved on campus and in various organizations, and this lets you develop you leadership skills. The only downside of this program is that it largely focuses on retail pharmacy applications, but I am sure this is prevalent in many other programs as well. Overall, I love the environment and all of the teachers are always willing to help you.

Drake University provides an opportunity to network and collaborate with individuals who currently work within the field or seeking. My classmates were all working professionals seeking their masters. I was able to land a internship and a job through networking with my classmates. Drake University is a great place if you like working in teams and having real life application to your studies.

College was an immersion into learning, both academically and socially. Even when you think you aren't learning, like when you're headed out to spend time with friends, you are learning how to network with peers.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2014

College is a place to come into your own. It is your first experience being completely responsible for yourself. It is going to be scary and fun all at the same time. Drake was a great university that was small enough to make you feel safe and secure, while being large enough to still have some anonymity.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

The graduate program provides students with many opportunities to succeed in outside communities. Faculty and staff are committed to ensuring students are prepared to enter life after graduation as confident and capable pharmacists. The only con to the graduate program is that it is expensive, especially after 4 years.

My experience thus far with Drake's pharmacy program has been wonderful. The college is very well respected locally, which makes finding an internship in the area very easy. It is also extremely beneficial that many of the professors are also working professionals with real life experience in a variety of pharmacy professions.

Every professor invests in their students' learning and career goals. The MPA program prepares students extremely well for management and leadership rules.
