Hello! I'm Emily Staats, and I'm a Mentor! I am a Psychology major who transferred to University of Iowa from Calvin College.
Best Experience at Iowa So Far: I love studying on the ped mall when the weather gets warm after a long winter. The city comes to life with live music and street food and students at outdoor cafes soaking up the sun.
Favorite Class So Far and Why: My counseling psychology class last semester was great. We always had good discussions and my professor took the time to listen to everyone’s input and get to know us.
One Piece of Advice for a New Transfer Student: Don’t be afraid to take advantage of your professor’s office hours. UI is a big school, so you need to be active in getting the help you need. I promise you they won’t bite!
