An Interview with Richard...

How did you decide on your major?

I decided to pursue a major in Business Management. After receiving my degree, I would like to continue my career with Hy-Vee grocery stores and enter their management program.

What are the top three campus resources new students should use in their first year?

1. Utilize your professor and teaching assistant's office hours. 2. Talk to the administration within your residence hall. Their job is to not only help with your living accommodations, but they are also trained to help with academic and personal issues. 3. Take advantage of the free tutors and supplemental instruction groups that are available in the residence halls and around campus. 

How are you involved within the University of Iowa and/or greater Iowa City community?

Once stepping on campus, I made an effort to get involved with several organizations. I campaigned for the Finance Director of Hillcrest Association and for a spot on the finance directors board. My second semester, I applied and earned a leadership position with Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (S.T.A.T.). I made the great decision to join Greek life here on the University of Iowa campus. I also joined the University of Iowa Spirit Squad as a Hawkeye Cheerleader.
