Student Programs Administrator Jan Warren and her staff of graduate assistants – Allison Richards, Alex Wenger, and Amanda Berns – were recognized as “First-Year Student Champions” at a reception held December 4th at the Iowa Memorial Union. This fall 99% of UI first-year students completed the MAP-Works survey. MAP-Works is a survey that focuses on a student’s transition to college. One question on the survey asks first-year students to name the “person on campus who has helped you the most in your success.” All four of the University Programs staff were nominated by one or more first-year students. Congratulations to Jan, Allison, Alex, and Amanda, and thank you for your support of our students!
