Each year Upper Iowa University attends the Iowa State Fair, where we connect with alumni, students and fans. While 2020 was a little different than the typical booth experience, we still found a way to connect with hundreds of future and current Peacocks.

Thank you to everyone who participated virtually – whether you signed in as an alum, registered for the free classes and tuition or purchased from the UIU Campus Store – you helped make this year’s online event a great success. Don’t forget to watch for us next year in the Varied Industries Building at the 2021 Iowa State Fair.
