Student government offers new tradition: winter reception at Old Capitol
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Refreshments will be served, and the entire student body
is invited to attend. It's the first annual University of Iowa Winter Reception,
Friday, Dec. 12, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Old Capitol.
President Mary Sue Coleman and other members of the central administration
will be on hand to greet students for the event, which is sponsored by the
UI Student Government (UISG).
"We have been trying to start a tradition here at the University of
Iowa, and this seemed like a cool way to end the semester and start finals
week," said Meghan Henry, UISG vice president.
"I think this is a great way to bridge the distance between students
and administrators," said Allison Miller, UISG president. "I hope
students will take advantage of this opportunity to talk with President Coleman
and the rest of the administration. It's a great atmosphere to bring up concerns
and be listened to."
