“Growing up in Los Angeles the thought of spending a significant amount of time in a small town brought some uncertainty. The first time I visited Iowa City those worries were dispelled. Although this is a small town there is never a shortage of things to do. My experiences in Iowa City have ranged from seeing great music to having people I didn’t know be kind to me while walking down the street. I am very glad I chose Iowa City for my graduate career, as it provides a perfect atmosphere for productivity and fun. ”
