CIMBA Study Abroad Info Session

This Thursday, CIMBA is hosting a small informational session all about spending the fall semester in Italy! Fall is a unique and rewarding time to go abroad – the CIMBA semester starts later than Iowa, meaning students can go from kickoff at Kinnick to experiencing cultural events like Oktoberfest and fall markets with fewer tourists and better weather. The session is this Thursday from 12-12:30 in C106. Seats are limited, so please RSVP here. If you are not able to make it, or want to learn more about other CIMBA program options like spring and summer, please visit discover.cimbaitaly.com or email cimba-italy@uiowa.edu. We’ll also have a table at Tippie Fest Thursday afternoon – come see us!

Norman J. Kallaus Scholarship Winner Announced

Tippie marketing major Anna Vonderhaar has won the Norman J. Kallaus Spring 2021 scholarship. This award, established in 2020, is named in honor of Dr. Kallaus, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship. Dr. Kallaus was an advocate for strong communication skills in Tippie students and spent his career pursuing that priority. BCaP students who display exemplary communication skills are invited by their instructors to apply for this scholarship each fall and spring.
