Julia's favorite part about the University of Iowa has got to be the professors. They are all very accomplished in their fields and do amazing research on campus. She is always amazed at how they are all so passionate about what they are teaching.

With over 500 student organizations on campus, Julia has found her home in a few places. She is part of Old Gold A Capella and also spends time volunteering at the Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC). Both organizations offer her a variety of opportunities professionally and academically. Julia gets to help others while doing what she loves!

The most memorable experience Julia has had as a student so far was the first week of being in Iowa City and participating in On Iowa! She met a whole bunch of amazing people and got to participate in some activities that are entirely unique to the University of Iowa.
