Why I love UNI:  UNI was a great place to learn, make amazing new friends, work, live and have fun! I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't begin my journey as a Panther.

Why I love UNI: My five years at UNI were some of my favorite years (yes, five years. I was having so much fun, I didn't want to leave). In addition to supplying great memories, UNI prepared me for my career, introduced me to my wife, and provided a professional and social network that continues to grow and create opportunities (my job with the Twins was obtained through a fellow UNI alumnus).

Morgan Atchison

Club Leader

BA Public Administration: Human Resources ‘08
Minneapolis, MN
Compliance Manager, CHS

Why I love UNI:  Coming from a small community in western Iowa, I wanted a university that opened up my eyes to the world and its opportunities, all without losing that small-town feel and bond that I was used to. I found my passion under the trustful guidance of very dedicated and impactful educators. The opportunities were also there to travel the world with Camp Adventure and study abroad. My time at UNI was truly memorable as I even met my husband there. We both will be Purple for Life!

BA Political Science & Sociology ‘11
Minneapolis, MN
Academic Advisor, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

Why I love UNI:  I love the University of Northern Iowa for so many reasons, but I feel like they all are connected to the people and programs that are a part of the UNI community. People that are a part of this community all work to make their own corner of the world a better place, and I am so proud to be a small part of that fantastic tradition.
