Emily Martin, a University of Iowa student originally from Lancaster, has been named an On Iowa! student leader, charged with helping to welcome the university’s first-year and transfer class this fall.
Martin was one of about 235 UI students selected after a competitive interview process. On Iowa! student leaders 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.
