Building Connections

Alexandria Quinn

Alexandria Quinn formed strong ties to the Drake and Des Moines communities as an undergraduate at the University. It was these connections, as well as a competitive scholarship package, that led to her further her education at Drake Law.

As a law student, she has continued to build relationships in Des Moines and around the University through her leadership on the Student Bar Association, of which she is president of this year.

"My involvement in the Student Bar Association has given me an ability to shape my own legal education," she says. "It allows me to be the voice of the students and handle student concerns. I am able to interact one-on-one with my professors, and since I attend Board of Counselors meetings, I am able to get to know alumni and other advocates for the Drake Law School."

Alexandria is also an advocate for Drake Law with prospective students. She is an ambassador for the admissions office and also served as the undergraduate liaison for the legal fraternity, Delta Theta Phi. With prospective students, she emphasizes the advantages of Drake's size, the benefits of getting involved and the importance of forming relationships with professors and fellow students.

"I always tell students that Drake is a close knit community, which will help them in the long run," she says.
