Colleen Drake, an employee at Anderson University in Indiana

Colleen Drake


Adult & Graduate Admissions Recruiter

I first graduated from Anderson University in 2011 with a degree in Mass Communications. After six years working in venue management and public relations with organizations like Tuxedo Brothers Event Management, Live Nation, White River State Park, and The State of Indiana, I joined the Anderson University family.

I started pursuing an MBA at AU’s Falls School of Business in January of 2016, knowing it could have lasting benefits for my career. The caliber of education I have received with my MBA has not only provided me with a solid understanding of business practice and leadership, but it has also offered me opportunities to learn from colleagues, create lasting friendships, and enhance my skills working in teams and small groups. I have made wonderful connections through the AU MBA program, and I have that hope for you as you learn more about Anderson University and the Falls School of Business. I look forward to learning more about you, why you are considering the AU MBA program, and watching as God molds you into the leader, manager, employee, and/or colleague that he has called you to become.

Fun Facts: My husband and I live on the east side of Indianapolis and both met at AU in 2010. We welcomed our son, Arlie in 2018, and will soon welcome another addition to our family in the spring of 2021. As a family we enjoy traveling, visiting new restaurants in Indianapolis, and hiking and camping together when we have time away. I’m a movie buff, enjoy writing, reading, and exploring cities.
