Destiny Payne's Experience at Iowa State

By: Nsafi

When Destiny Payne was deciding what school, she wanted to attend after her undergraduate program, she wanted to pick an institution that would give her a different experience than her last institution. She wanted to go to a bigger institution that also had a well-established student affairs program.

So, when she found out that she could enroll in a student affairs program that had a social justice focus, she was immediately attracted to Iowa State.

On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by a police officer outside of a grocery store in Minneapolis for allegedly using a fake 20 dollar bill. His death is one in a long and storied history of police brutality against African-Americans in the United States. Shortly after, protests began in Minneapolis, and have swept across the globe. My name is Takashi Runtsch, and on May 30th, I participated in one such protest in Minneapolis. These photos document my experience.

My Personal Growth In Dealing With Racism by Iluda

At Iowa State University, the conversations about racism tend to never end. However, this makes sense as the recent campus news tells us, students of color, to be aware. From the vandalism in dorms, racial slurs chalked on the sidewalks, and recently racial tension toward Asians caused by the Corona Virus 19. With racism happening over and over again to people of color, how do we deal with it? Here are my personal stories along with my personal growth in dealing with racism.
