Each year, our pack gathers around the Blue Oval to celebrate Relays and everything Drake. Returning home, our Bulldogs renew their commitment to our alma mater and each other. 

Be a part of history as Drake University inaugurates our newest Bulldog, President Earl "Marty" Martin on Thursday. 

The Friday night All-Alumni Tent Party has become a favorite among alumni celebrating their classmates and friendships, and making new connections with live music and games. 

Young alumni (2005-2015) are invited to the Alumni House on Saturday for a social brunch and breakfast bar and to meet President Martin and welcome him to his first Drake Relays. 

Graduates of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will gather for a series of special reunion events, and Journalism alumni are invited to  the annual SJMC Alumni Reception in Meredith on Saturday. 

Make plans to be a part of all the fun, festivities and memories this April.

Welcome home, Bulldogs!
