Students from Kirkwood Elementary School in Coralville visited the UI's College of Education recently to learn about college life. They went on a tour of campus and talked with first-generation students, professors, and graduate students. Read the Iowa Now story about the Classroom to Campus AVID event, a program that teaches students about college and works to close the opportunity gap.
