We made it through the first week of classes, which included critical milestone events (like Admit One) and kicking off new readings, new project teams, and so much more.
I’m still processing all that happened in the week leading up to classes. For example, I’m still thinking about OnIowa! and the fun that our new students had just before classes started. I know I enjoyed meeting students at various events, including Group #316 at the Excel lecture just over a week ago. Their leader, Xuan (Rita) Wang, is a Finance student who also serves as President of OASIS, The Organization for the Active Support of International Students (http://oasis.uiowa.edu). This is the second year running that at Tippie student leads this campus-wide organization. We have so many great leaders at Tippie! Thanks, Rita, for your service to OnIowa! and your work on behalf of international students all across campus.
