Hello! I'm Katherine Conlon, and I'm a Mentor! I am an Economics major and Mathematics minor who transferred to University of Iowa from College of Dupage in Illinois.
Best Experience at Iowa So Far: My best experience at Iowa so far was definitely Bo Burnham’s performance. I have been a Bo fan for years so I was very excited that Iowa provides so many amazing opportunities!
Favorite Class So Far and Why: My favorite class so far was Issues: War and Violence in pre-Modern Civilizations. I took it to fulfill a general education requirement and the teacher made the class very fun and interactive.
One Piece of Advice for a New Transfer Student: I would advise a new transfer student to meet with an advisor early and often. Having a graduation plan and an idea of what classes you will be taking not only in the current semester, but in the future as well helps to relieve some of the stress that comes with transferring.
