Family Programs

On Iowa! is geared towards new students. Move-in Day (on or off campus) is the time in which families help their students get settled in their new dwellings and then say goodbye. This is an exciting time – and a bit nerve-wracking for some -- as students and their families make the formal transition into the University of Iowa.

Two optional-attendance sessions have been planned to provide families information prior to leaving Iowa City.
