Tristan Schmidt: UI Homecoming Court 2018
Going to my first ever football game! I went for a class that I was in and we got to watch from the President's Press Box! It was so amazing to see the stadium from up there. Plus, there was amazing food!
None! My experience at the University of Iowa, through all of the memories of late night homework, Netflix binges, and coffee, has been worth it!
I came here unsure if I would make it through my first year. Four years later, I am a proud first generation college student who found a passion in what I study. I want to show students, no matter their identity, no matter where they are in their journey, that here at the University of Iowa, they can be whoever they want!
I want to see that equitable education is made available for any and all students! Just having the opportunity makes a world of difference and it could change the course of how we value education and shape the world!
I switched my major almost 10 times during my first two years!
Shapeshifting! I think it would be cool to be Herky for a day!
