Honors at Iowa celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in the 2008-09 academic year, and in its long history the program has produced many and distinguished alums. Besides links to our Newsletter, we offer here news, articles, and events specific to our alums.

Also, we post here opportunities for you to give back to Honors with your time and expertise. With your experience in Honors and in your careers you are one of our most valuable resources and advocates.

Finally, we encourage you to come in person to visit.  At our last Commendation ceremony, we had a visiting alum, John Rutherford, from the very first Honors graduating class (1962), and we were able to introduce John at the ceremony.

Resources & recommendations from the Director of Scholar Development

Aren't sure where to get started when it comes to your campus application essays? I encourage everyone to spend sometime working through a handful of questions that may help you remember who you are and what has influenced your intellectual, personal, and professional development, but which also generate useful content/momentum for application development.
