DES MOINES, Iowa -- It turns out, Drake didn't ditch Drake. The campaign to bring the rapper to the school worked. He stopped by an empty campus around 2:30 a.m. on his way out of Des Moines.
“We ran together, we cried together yesterday and now we're in disbelief together that it actually happened,” said Drake Student Body President Thalia Anguiano.
Drake snapped a picture in front of the Drake University sign and posted it to Instagram. Then, he stopped by two sororities, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Kappa Alpha Theta.
“They missed it and I felt so bad for them,” said Ben Scott, a junior at Drake.
Most everyone inside was asleep and the few who were awake either didn’t hear the doorbell or want to answer the door at that hour.
"I think I was the only one that actually saw him and spoke to him which was phenomenal. I can't believe it happened," said the Drake Junior.
Scott lives across the street at Theta Chi and was still up after seeing Drake in concert at Wells Fargo Arena.
"We just had a really brief conversation, hey, do you think anyone is awake? What’s going on?" he said.
"I missed him, it was really close. At least I can say Drake was on my campus,” said Anguiano.
Other fans won’t be able to see Drake as planned. Rolling Stone is reporting the rapper has canceled three upcoming shows in Toronto, Philadelphia, and Newark due to an ankle injury.
