Lisa BrinkmeyerClass of 1998
"Probably, my best friend coming out of Drake would be Nicole McBean. She came from Chicago and I came from little town, Hubbard. And really Nicole was one of the first Black people I'd ever met and really became good friends with. I mean, on a personal basis... but we both came in the same year to play basketball and we couldn't have been more different. And then after we got to know each other, we realized that we were really similar. And Nicole and I have just been best friends ever since."

Mary ClarkClass of 1957
"Professor James J. Feederlick was a marvelous, warm, enlightened, loving man who also loved the theater and he was beloved by his students, especially the alums. We now have a Drake Theater Alumni group that gives scholarships to theater students and created the James J. Feederlick award after him. We hear from students from decades ago every year when they make their donations to our scholarship fund."
