June 15, 2016, is the eighth anniversary of the crest of the Iowa River in Iowa City. The University of Iowa will host a celebration that day to mark a flood recovery milestone and our commitment to serve our students and the people of Iowa during the last eight years, despite many flood-related challenges.
The community celebration is for UI faculty, staff, and students, and the greater UI community. Please join us from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the east side of the Pentacrest. No RSVP is required; complimentary food and bottled water will be served while supplies last. There will be prizes available for a few lucky attendees.*
A brief program is scheduled for 12:15 p.m., and a short video presentation will be available for viewing inside the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol Museum.
* Winners will be selected at random from all attendees who register at the event. Winners will be contacted on Wednesday, June 22, via email. Prizes include pairs of tickets to the Iowa-Michigan football game and pairs of tickets to select events at Hancher Auditorium, including a performance of The Nutcracker.
