Why log in?

Why should I register and log in?

By registering and logging into the Drake University Alumni community, you get access to a set of features that have previously not been available online to our alumni. To use these features, we need to be able to identify and verify who you are. Doing so protects you and other community members by removing the ability to post items or to contact fellow users anonymously. The advantages to you include being able to update your contact information yourself, submit class notes directly, and have event forms and other forms that fill in your information automatically. You can register as a guest to fill out forms, but you cannot search our directories as a guest, and guest accounts are deleted after a period of time.

What is the "community" and who is in it?

Our Drake University Alumni community is visible to all Drake alumni who have registered for an account on our website. It features Class Notes, Message Boards, easy event registration, and much more. In order to take advantage of the features there, you will need to register and log in. See below how to register for your account.

How do I log in or activate my account?

Log in on the hompage, or on the login tab located on the far right—hand side of the website navigation bar. Enter your username and password where indicated. First time users can select "Register for Account" to activate your account.

Why do I need to create a username and password?

By creating a unique username and password, you can be assured that no one else will be using our site with your name. The username and password are created once you have registered for your account. Our site gives you the option of having your login information saved, as will many internet browsers.

I forgot my username or password. How can I get it?

On the home page, there is a link "Forgot Username/Password" that will give you instructions on how to recover your username or password. You will need to enter the email address you used when registering for your account, and an email will be sent to you with either your username or a link to reset your password.

How do I update my account information?

Once you have logged in, access the "Update My Information" page under the "My Drake” tab on the top menu. You can also email alumni.update@drake.edu.

Can I change or customize my visible profile?

Yes. When you register, you will have the option of making visible as much or as little information about yourself as you like. If you wish to have yourself removed from the directory altogether, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni.update@drake.edu, or call 515-271-2500.

How do I access the Alumni Directory?

Where can I find Class Notes?

Class notes can be found here, or under the "Alumni Community" tab in the main navigation. While you can browse class notes at any time, you must be logged into your profile to publish class notes.
