A series of special events are planned for members of the Hawkeye Cruise group included “University of Iowa Football Seminar at Sea” presented by Ferentz and his staff, an update on the progress of the renovation of historic Kinnick Stadium by UI Associate Athletics Director Mark Jennings, and a special reception hosted by the UI Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and the National I-Club.
