From early on in her time as a Hawkeye, Amanda has been showcasing her love for the UI. She says her favorite experience has been working for Admissions, because she gets to travel and connect with prospective Hawkeyes through her experiences here. Working with prospective and new Hawkeyes has been a focal point of Amanda's involvement at Iowa, from her work with Admissions to her involvement with Orientation and On Iowa!.

Passionate about both research and writing, she has been able to find many ways to combine her different interests into a unique academic portfolio from Iowa's top-ranked programs. "I am very passionate about research and Iowa is a research institution, it also has one of the best writing programs in the nation," she shares.

Amanda is an International Ambassador for the University of Iowa Office of Admissions. If you're a prospective international student who has any questions about life at Iowa, please feel free to reach out to her via email at
