An Interview with Sam...
Describe your first semester at the University of Iowa. How did it align with your expectations before arriving to campus?
My first semester of college was beyond my expectations. I made some of the best friends I could have ever asked for. I got involved in so many amazing organizations. I had so much fun being a Hawkeye.
How is college academics different than high school?
College academics is all about taking your learning into your own hands. You have to have the passions and drive to be a great student.
A sense of independence comes along with being a college student. How did you handle your "independence"?
I handled my new independence by finding other people on campus I could turn to if i needed. Finding some great friends and amazing teachers to have your back made being at college so much easier. Being independent does not mean being alone.
