Searching for universities with a vibe like Drake University?

Hi friends, as I'm entering my junior year I've started to look at colleges and Drake University caught my eye. I like the size and the community feel, but I also want to consider other options. Can anyone suggest similar medium-sized universities that are known for a tight-knit campus and good programs in communications or journalism?

Hello there! It's great that you've started your college search with a clear idea of what you're looking for. If you're drawn to the size and community atmosphere of Drake University, here are a few other institutions you might consider:

1. Butler University (IN) - Similar in size to Drake, with strong programs in communication.

2. Creighton University (NE) - Offers a close-knit campus feel and solid journalism and communications majors.

3. Marquette University (WI) - Known for its excellent College of Communication and a connected campus community.

4. Elon University (NC) - Has a renowned School of Communications and a small- to medium-sized campus vibe.

Each of these universities provides a strong sense of community and offers respected programs in the communications field. I’d suggest visiting campuses if you can, to really get a sense of the environment and how you might fit. Good luck with your search!
