The University of Iowa

On Iowa! — What is it?

On Iowa! is an immersion experience for all new first-year students; members of the Class of 2023 are expected to attend; whereas transfer students are invited (and highly encouraged) to attend. On Iowa! will provide a comprehensive introduction to University life, including the skills necessary to be a successful University of Iowa student within and beyond the classroom. During On Iowa!, you will build connections with new and current students, learn about University history and traditions and become familiar with the expectations of The IOWA Challenge. You’ll learn about what to expect academically, the differences between high school and college, and getting engaged on campus will also be emphasized.
