Big Things on the Horizon

The University of Iowa campus currently bustles with parents and new students anticipating the year ahead. For the incoming freshmen, everything here is new. Sure, nearly all of them have seen campus before, but never through the lens of a current UI student. When they look around their new home, they can perhaps visualize a gateway to their future success.
