2020-21 Undergraduate Recognition Ceremony

Welcome and Congratulations to the Seniors from December 2020 and May 2021

We are proud of these students who have persevered through a pandemic, national and local racial tensions and political upheaval.  We believe that your voices and the perspectives you have shared and learned during your time at Iowa will change the world.  Please keep in touch and keep us updated about your life! Email us at with updates. 

Thank you to the families and friends who have supported these students throughout their education.

Please enjoy the senior slideshow 

We apologize in advance if we left anyone off.  We tried to use applications for graduation but with three people working on this, we could have missed someone.  Thank you for early forgiveness. We love you!
