We asked you to ask us questions on Instagram and here we gol Ow! This is question 13 letter rib. Have you guys put any other positions before college? Set a girl. She was a senator. I was a lobero. Now I'm an outside hitter and now now she's too short. So she's a little girl. New question question. Question is you out? You guys have like a sister like my team does. Absolutely. We absolutely have a sisterhood. We call it The Sisterhood of the Traveling Spandex. Some might call it a cult. Some may call it a cold, but way have rituals were like broad blood brothers.

Okay, So question number two from Instagram is what is your favorite part about playing volleyball, being on volleyball at Iowa And my very part would definitely be my teammates because we're just together all the time. And without them, I couldn't really play because it's a team sport. No, and we're all best friends. It's not fake, like we're definitely best friends off the court.

Okay, so this right behind me is our campus recreation, A wellness center. I like to call it the wreck for short. Um, and I come here a lot. Actually, uh, there's so many different things that you can do here. And as a student, it comes apart of your tuition to have a membership. Um, so you khun D'oh workout classes?

It's about 68 maybe 70 degrees. No rain. Look at the blue sky. We're out here having ourselves a day. Hey, it's been a minute. It's been really Washington, but we're headed back a sap frickin ace up. Okay. I'm a sophomore here at the University of Iowa. Uh, I'm a skater in criminology, Major and a German minor. Uh, can I have you talk about some academics here? University? Yeah. All of the professors are always really great here. They always will help you out with whatever you need. Even the ones on like that for your lectures. If you go to their office hours, I'll help you out. And all the TV is in really great. And if you have any questions, always answer them for you. And there's always someone around to help you out if you need it. All right. And you don't talk about discussions, maybe. Yeah. Um, so for the bigger lectures and even release some of the medium and apply smaller ones, they have discussion sections, Which is like, So you all have a lecture together, but then you, like, break off into smaller discussion sections. Probably only twenty people give or take a kn. I'm talking about what you want to lecture and clarify things if you have any questions. And, you know, you'll study for tests on help each other out with that and papers and stuff, and then who teaches these discussion section the teeth a's teaching assistants Hey, guys. So I'm here with my friend Dan right now, and he's gonna talk to you guys a little bit about more of the academic culture here. Iowa. You want to go ahead and introduce yourself? Sure. My name's Dan Fleming. And I am a software here in Iowa. I'm a chemical engineering major with an intent to double in biochemistry. And the result was Iowa is probably just because it's I mean, I think it's a great school, but you see, I'm also from Iowa, so it's a great deal to say in state tuition and pretty close to home. But not too close is the right distance. And I just, you know, kinda fell off campus and culture they wanted. So what's your favorite part campus If you were part of campus, probably Penna Crest. It's just, like, picturesque. You know, just really nice looking for a place to stay. You know, if you just walk downtown, it's right there. You can see it. So Yeah, right. Uh, what's your least, Mark? At least here, I don't know if I have a least fair part about university. I mean something. So you don't think it's like, two big, but I like the size of it. But it is like so big sometimes that it just like so people would think it's like overwhelming, like there's too many people. It's hard to meet new people because it's like, well, like Dan and I are very different majors. But I still see him all over campus all the time, just like so. You run into people, you know, all the time. Yeah, it's smaller than it seems. And then he tells a little bit about like the academics, like the engineering department and find out how classes there classes are. They're a little bit disorganized engineering department, but for the most part, the run pretty well and everyone in the engineering department Super smart. I mean, for me, but for the most part, good students. A lot of them are just really driven, really focused on their academics and stuff like that. So it's a good active in climate. And didn't they just add on? Yeah, did just add on a whole new annex to the engineering department, which is really, really nice and, like the whole university in general, has a lot of new projects all the time. Like any music going. You are building and stuff like that. So in terms of length facilities, it's a really good place. Thank you very much. All right. Hi. Sliming Caliph residents hold dining hall right now and it's really cool in here. Everything is serve buffet style and it's different menu every night. And they also have found machines. You can choose different drinks that night. Well, and I chose eat a popcorn chicken.
