The Office of the Registrar is currently seeking enthusiastic members of the University community to assist with the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences commencement ceremonies. We saw them enter the University of Iowa through OnIowa! Now we have the wonderful opportunity to assist them one more time as they take the stage to graduate. This is a great occasion to support future Hawkeye Alumni and celebrate the successes of our student body!
