Iowa Friday Night Live is for soon to be high school seniors and their families who are entering college in Fall 2020. We will kick off with an optional tour of a Residence Hall, followed by our Iowa Overview presentation which includes information about the admission process, our outstanding academic offerings, housing opportunities, financial aid and scholarships, and ways to get involved in student life. Following the overview, tour guides share their student experience while leading you on a walking tour of campus. The tour will conclude with a stroll around Iowa City’s award-winning downtown, featuring stops at selected restaurants for food sampling. We are unable to accommodate dietary restrictions during this event. Please visit campus on one of the many visit days when lunch is provided at a Café Market Place.
