Nafisa's favorite part about Iowa so far has been participating in OnIowa! and getting to know people, both upperclassmen and fellow classmates, which has helped grow her social network. 

Not only is campus a great way to meet new people, but it is also so beautiful. Nafisa loves the pretty sceneries and landscapes that Iowa has all throughout campus. 

Nafisa chose to attend Iowa because it is one of the most peaceful states in the United States and it offers world-class research opportunities to a diverse student body, which provides an engaging environment on campus. 

Nafisa 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 nafisakamal-ayntee@uiowa.edu.
