Ivy Beckenholdt

Major: Strategic Political Communication

Hometown: St. Louis

Favorite Drake memory: My favorite Drake memory has to be playing sardines (reverse hide and seek) at night on campus with my friends. When we lived on campus we used to play this all the time and we still talk about all the times we would get scared when someone who wasn’t playing the game found us.

Tip for Drake freshmen: There are going to be a lot of people who are “Drake Busy” and seem to have it all figured out; however, you should not compare yourself to them. If you don’t get an internship or a job you wanted it’s really okay. Everyone has to apply to a million things before getting one that’s right.

Plans after graduation: (Job Seeker) I hope to move to Washington D.C. and work press for a political organization.
