*Drake University*

Drake University has a school spirit
that our campus will always impart,
And like Alan Webb in the ’07 Relays—
We go the extra mile
To set us apart.

Only in Drake will you find athletes from all over the globe competing on tracks at an Olympic level. And where else but Drake will you find beautiful bulldogs from around the country competing in a race to represent the Relays? We even have our own sport:
Hubbelling in the winter down the snowy hills of Des Moines.
We have student organizations that paint colors up and down Carpenter Avenue, and a kissing rock where sweethearts love to meet.
Yeah, there’s just something about life as a Bulldog…
A sensation of pride that you just can’t fake…
There’s an aroma of delight that permeates Des Moines,
A special blend that’s
Distinctly Drake.
