Drake University has the distinguished honor of having a campus plan and nine buildings designed by two of the greatest architects of the 20th century. This fall, a comprehensive exhibition sheds light on how those designs by Eliel Saarinen and his son, Eero, reflected Drake's determination to be a modern university that would help propel America into post-World War II leadership.
With nearly 660 more students taking classes taught by Drake's College of Business and Public Administration faculty than in 2004-05, the college recently updated Aliber Hall to provide better facilities and resources for more students.
