Alumni and Development

Central Iowa Alumni

Join our Facebook group to connect with other central Iowa alumni, learn about events in the community, and share your own news!  

Des Moines is the obvious place to find Bulldog spirit, but not everything happens right on Drake’s campus.  There are plenty of ways for central Iowa alumni to get involved and celebrate their love for Drake!

For more information on events in Central Iowa, contact Jennifer Woodley, GR'07, Associate Director of Alumni Relations at (515) 271-1947 or
