A message about the first home football game

Hey Hawkeyes!

Like many of you, we are excited that the 2019 football season begins this Saturday. Students play a valuable role in the tradition of Hawkeye football, both as players on the field and fans in the stadium. Respect for others is a key component of The IOWA Challenge which calls on us to be good neighbors and make Iowa City a great place to live.
