Hawkeye Bash Begins School Year

This past weekend, I had the joy of working with my co-chair, Ryan McFadden of Res Life, to put on the first event of Welcome Week called the Hawkeye Bash. It was a smashing success with more than 1,000 students attending. We had a Casino Night (not with real money) with 20 tables of blackjack and poker, a karaoke room packed to the brim with students giving their vocal chords a workout, a rave where students danced and were entertained by Intersection, a men’s a cappella group, and a drag show, and a V.I.P. section where students were able to meet some of the administration, deans, and presidents. The Bijou also presented the movie Fight Club, and students had the opportunity to take a shuttle to Target to shop after hours.

All in all, I can’t think of a better way to welcome the largest first-year class to the University of Iowa.
