Engaged Hawkeyes week is an opportunity for students to explore the many ways to be an involved student on campus! Getting involved on campus or in the community is the surest way to find your home away from home while at the University of Iowa.

Why get involved on campus?

  • UI students who are engaged report greater feelings of connection to other students, faculty, staff, and others in the university community.

  • Students who are engaged also tend to be more successful in the classroom, and learn valuable job skills that future employers are looking for in college graduates.

  • Best of all, by getting involved, you will develop greater self-confidence while also meeting new people, and developing lifelong connections.
