Filing frenzy!

Not all Americans are income tax experts, but it's safe to say that everyone has an opinion, an expletive, a gripe, or a tale to offer about taxes—in short, their two cents worth.

To prove it, members of the fyi staff trekked across campus one drizzly day in early March to ask UI faculty and staff members about the “T” word. After our assurances that we weren’t feds from the IRS or another ominous government agency, most we spoke to were quick to respond and willing to expound on the notion that America has a love-hate relationship with tax season.



In January, Iowa Governor Chet Culver sent a budget proposal to the Iowa legislature asking for an increase in funding to Iowa’s Regents universities. UI administrators are encouraged by the governor's announcement, according to Mark Braun, UI state governmental relations director. Braun recently answered a few questions for fyi about the proposal and how it has fared so far in the legislature.



fyi readers share fond, diverse memories of IMU

Many reader memories of the Iowa Memorial Union included one or more of the following: bowling, beer, billiards, music, and food. But the fyi reader survey also brought stories of student political activity, and reminders of the founding intention of the IMU—to commemorate the University's wartime heritage.
