After the papers are written and the final tests taken, after the names are read and the tassels turned, after the families are thanked and the achievements celebrated, University of Iowa spring 2007 graduates will embark on a promising new journey.
Armed with indispensable knowledge and skills learned during their time at Iowa, UI grads face bright futures—whether their plans include careers, volunteer work, or further study. Iowa grads have high placement rates in jobs and graduate programs, and among the nation’s highest scores on certification tests in areas including dentistry and physician assistant studies.
The groundwork for this kind of success begins during undergraduates’ first days on campus and continues throughout their academic careers. In one campus building, Iowa students get a range of services dedicated to helping them succeed, whether they’re choosing classes and majors or finding internships and first jobs.
The Pomerantz Center’s continuum of personalized guidance makes it one of the few facilities of its kind on American college campuses. The building unites student-focused resources previously scattered across campus, putting recruiting, advising, education, and placement programs under one roof.
Students are introduced to the University through the Admission Visitors Center on the building’s first floor. As first-year students, they get help exploring majors in the second-floor Academic Advising Center. And the Pomerantz Career Center on the third floor helps students identify possible careers and practice for job interviews.
Thanks to the advising offered in this one-of-a-kind campus center, students leave The University of Iowa prepared to succeed—wherever the future may lead them.
