My favorite thing about working in Admissions

Visit days! I love the energy on campus when big groups are visiting, and I love helping prospective students explore a place that they might choose to call home.

Iowa City “Must Do and Must See” Locations

The Iowa River Corridor Trail. Iowa City has a phenomenal trail system for walking, biking, and running. The trails are beautiful – they run along the Iowa River, and end down at Terry Trueblood Lake, where you can rent kayaks or go stand-up paddle boarding.

What makes Iowa such a great place?

The community and the vibe of downtown Iowa City is unlike any place else in the state. There are so many great restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, and book stores in the area that are fun to explore, and there’s almost always an event going on in the ped mall on weekends.
