Student government leaders issue message

The following message is being sent to students by Maison Bleam, president of the University of Iowa Student Government, and Steven Wieland, president of the Executive Council of Graduate and Professional Students:
As you all know, the recent flooding has left our community, this university, and us—the UI student body—with many challenges to overcome. This will be a rebuilding period at the University of Iowa. You have an opportunity to be part of these remarkable times.

This fall, important university events will be happening as planned. These include Welcome Week, Homecoming, Family Weekend, and, of course, Big Ten sports. All of our 400-plus student organizations will remain active, so students will still have an opportunity to get involved. The extraordinary student culture of this great university will continue to thrive in spite of the challenges that we face.

On behalf of your Partnership of Student Governments at Iowa, we want to sincerely thank all those involved with the rebuilding process. No matter what adjustments need to be made, we are certain the UI student body will shine during these remarkable times. GO HAWKS!
