Rachel Carmen
Cassie Fettkether

Year: Sohpomore

Major(s)/Minor(s): Communicative Disorders/Spanish

Hometown: Iowa City, IA

Interesting fact about yourself: My dream is to spend a year (or a few!) being a permanent nomad and traveling the globe, interacting with people of all kinds, photographing everything and writing a book to conclude my journey.

Hobbies: Reading, writing, sleeping, photography, kickboxing, trying new things!

Favorite UNI memory: Pretty much my whole freshman year! But if you need a specific memory...I guess I would say befriending all the girls in my hall and learning how friendly everyone at UNI is.

The best part about being in Honors is: Meeting friends. I met a bunch of upperclassmen through Honors events, and my closest friends are all Honors students as well. Also, there are many interesting opportunities (classes, events) available specifically to honors students.

Year: Sophomore

Major(s)/Min)or(s: Communicative Disorders/ minor in Spanish

Hometown: Robins, IA

Interesting fact about yourself: I ran a half marathon and it was actually a lot of fun!

Hobbies: Running, reading, roller blading, hanging out with friends

Favorite UNI memory: When UNI beat Iowa in basketball this year, it was an exciting game!

The best part about being in Honors is: All the people you get to meet and relationships you form. The honors classes are great because of their smaller size and the discussions that come from them.
