Lindsey Meyer: Homecoming Court 2019

Lindsey Meyer is a senior from Sumner, Iowa majoring in Speech and Hearing Science with a minor in Psychology.

What is your favorite memory from the University of Iowa?

All the laughs shared during coffee dates with friends in all the Iowa City coffeeshops. :-) 

If you had a superpower for one day, what would it be?

I would definitely choose the ability to immediately teleport anywhere in the world to visit all the places on my bucket list!

Why do you want to be a part of Homecoming Royalty?

I want my story to serve as one example of how many opportunities you can pursue at Iowa that align with your passions, values, and interests.  There are so many opportunities to make change that you can pursue, and I wanted to share how these reflect and have grown my love for the University of Iowa.

What would like to see changed in the world during your lifetime?

I would love to see all types of people taking the time to listen and understand each other. So many problems in this world stem from misunderstnadings and misconceptions among people that it would be so cool to see everyone truly listening and learning from each other and further, to actively identify the similarities among each other rather than the few differences. 

If you had the chance to redo one year on campus, which year would it be, and what would you do differently?

I would definitely redo my freshman year. I would love to re-experience all the exciting "firsts" that happen during your first year, like moving into my residence hall, feeling the hype of my first game in Kinnick, and watching my first sunset on the pentacrest. 

What is a fun fact that no one knows about you?

I can identify over 70 different plants, and I especially love learning about native prairie flowers!  

Iowa Homecoming is a week where the community comes together to celebrate Hawkeye pride. This year, we're celebrating The University of Iowa's impeccable history of Hawkeye champions whether they are on the field, in the classroom, or excelling worldwide. For more information on homecoming, visit
