Since coming to Iowa State University, I have noticed that it is a pretty quiet in Ames (besides late Friday and Saturday night). On weekdays, when I am heading to class, it’s not uncommon for me to see an ISUPD vehicle cruising behind a Cyride bus through campus. In fact, it’s never uncommon for me to see an ISUPD vehicle, as they are always on patrol, 24/7.

I grew up in small-town Iowa. It was predominantly white people, so there were not a lot of minorities. You could probably count the number of people of color on both of your hands. In my class, there was one other girl who was from China until another family moved to town in our middle school years.
