From the editor

Greetings and salutations from the sweat belt (better known as Des Moines, the home of your beloved alma mater, Drake University). Despite the withering summer temperatures squatting over the Midwest this summer, we remained busy Bulldogs on campus and around the nation. Construction is the theme of our summer edition, from a planned student housing and retail project to efforts to build the Drake Law School’s national reputation. And don’t forget to come visit our history display at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday, Aug. 12. It’s just the tonic to get Bulldog faithful fired up for fall!
