Get your start as a Hawkeye at On Iowa!—a welcome and University community immersion event where all members of the Class of 2027 and new transfer students will:
- Make friends with new and returning students,
- Discover Hawkeye traditions and what it means to be a University of Iowa student,
- Prepare to excel in your classes,
- Explore activities and student organizations, and
- Commit to The IOWA Challenge!
On Iowa! will help you become familiar with the University of Iowa community and resources prior to the first day of classes. You’ll have opportunities to explore campus resources and the Iowa City community, think about your goals for the semester, and talk about what it means to thrive as a Hawkeye, both in-person and virtually.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will host the CLAS Welcome Party for new students on Thursday, Aug. 17 from 3-4:30 p.m. on the east side of the Pentacrest Lawn. Enjoy live music from the Blake Shaw Quartet, lawn games, cookies and cold drinks, and a photo booth on the Pentacrest lawn. Free shirts and stickers are also up for grabs. Herky will be there, too.
