An Interview with Samantha...

What advice would you share with a new student about their first year at the University of Iowa?

GET 8 HOURS OF SLEEP! I made the mistake of not taking care of myself and my body and I paid the consequences. You cannot be successful without your health.

How would you define a "successful student" at the University of Iowa?

Someone who is working hard to achieve their goals, balancing their health and social life, and doing what makes them the happiest.

How is college academics different than high school?

In high school, I felt as if they were constantly holding your hand. In college, there are plenty of resources and help available - you just need to take the responsibility.
