Take advantage of all that the University of Iowa has to offer academically and socially. Get engaged on campus in one of the many student organizations, serve on or off campus, and stretch yourself to experience new opportunities. As a Hawkeye, make the IOWA Challenge your mission – excel, stretch, engage, choose and serve!

It is my sincere hope that you will benefit from all the University of Iowa has to offer – including your academic program of study, student organizations, employment opportunities, and the many arts and athletic events that are offered on our campus. The University of Iowa is your home away from home – and we are here to support you and your success.
