Why Iowa…

“I chose Iowa because of its amazing atmosphere. Everywhere on campus feels like home, especially on the hockey field. From the start, the coaches made me feel welcome and part of the team. Iowa also has a great academic program and offers continued support. I’m so excited to join the Hawkeye family.”
