Committed to community. Creating Opportunity. That's the Hawkeye Way.

Iowa students come together for causes greater than themselves. Student organizations, living-learning communities, and a campus-wide focus on civic engagement connect students with each other, build leadership skills, and help you succeed.

Championing opportunity for everyone makes the difference. From being the first state university to admit men and women equally in 1855 to becoming the first public university to list transgender as an option on the application for admission in 2012, Iowa blazes trails for equality.
