University of Iowa

Andrew Broderick of Baxter and Kelly Murphy of Newton are among 235 University of Iowa students selected to serve as On Iowa! students leaders, charged with welcoming new first-year and transfer students this fall.

On Iowa! student leaders are chosen after a competitive interview process. They are instrumental to the week-long program, which is designed to immerse new students in University of Iowa culture, underscore academic expectations, and teach UI traditions.

Now in its fourth year, On Iowa! is part of the university’s overall focus on student success, which also includes residence-hall based living-learning communities for all first-year students, early intervention programs that offer personalized help for students showing signs of trouble, and expanded academic support options.

Dordt College

Sarah Fopma and Seth Fopma, both of Lynnville, will be part of Dordt College Theatre’s production of The Fantasticks, to be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 23, 24, 25 and 26 at the Te Paske Theatre in the Sioux Center High School.
