Being a student of color at a predominantly white institution (PWI), acts of oppression, microaggressions, feelings of being unwanted at the university, and many other obstructions serve as motivation for students of color to become leaders in the community to be a part of changing the culture and atmosphere at Iowa State.

What's it like to be a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader? by Luis

As students, our job is to learn from our professors, whose job it is to teach us. However, sometimes students are given the opportunity to take on a teaching role as well. Being a Supplemental Instruction (SI) leader is one of the few times this can officially happen. Having been able to work on the other side of the classroom as a teacher has given me a new perspective, one that has changed my outlook on both teachers and the classroom.

  • Are you a student at Iowa State?
  • Do you love Iowa State?  
  • Are you interested in talking about your love for Iowa State for $350?

Destination Iowa State (DIS) is the rite of passage many new students participate in to meet other new students and get adjusted to campus before classes start.

When I originally made a post for the hype back in September, I mentioned that my goal for Student Government was “… in the near future, when a black female student walks into senate for the first time, she will be able to look around the room and feel represented.”

Pizza, Treadmills, And Supplemental Instruction by Daniel

We’re all familiar with that one course that everyone talks about. The course has a stigma for being an assassin of GPAs, a pothole on the road to academic conquest. Sour faces and stories of defeat arise when the subject is spoken of:

       “I barely passed that class.”        “The averages were so low.”       “Nothing in that class makes sense.”
