  • University of Iowa welcomes the Class of 2022


- Hello, class of 2022. I am so excited to see all of you joining us here on this beautiful day. My name is Hira Mustafa. My pronouns are she, her, hers, and I'm a fourth-year student studying ethics in public policy, business, and philosophy. I serve as a student body president for the undergraduate student body. The University of Iowa Student Government is here to serve you in a variety of ways. We manage a $1.8 million budget that comes from your student activity fee, advocate on behalf of students on a campus-wide, local, state, and federal level. Lastly, we create initiatives to enhance the student experience. Fun fact is that way back in the day, UISG actually created Cambus. You can learn more about what we do either on our website, or UISG social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. You can also message me directly on Twitter, Instagram @lookwhoshira if you have questions, would like to connect with me, or just want to introduce yourself. I am always happy to chat with students, and I'd like to get to know as many of you as possible this year. I met some first year students at the On Iowa! UISG breakfast Friday morning, and I asked them what I should share with you all. After getting helpful feedback I present to you my tips for success at the University of Iowa. One, make as many new connections as possible whether it's the secretary at the advising center, the person checking out your books at Iowa Book, or someone you meet on campus. Being well connected to your community will serve you well, and make this campus feel like your home away from home. Trust me, I met one of my good friends because I complimented her lipstick on campus. Two, be engaged on campus. The most successful students on our campus are those who get involved through research, student orgs, study abroad, or an internship. You will get a lot out of this school, and you will get more the more you put into it, so give it your all because Iowa has a lot to offer you. Three, start using Flex Meals if you have them now because you're never gonna be able to use them all, and for the best meals on campus I recommend the River Room in IMU and trying the stir-fry. Four, pay attention to what you spend your free time on. I see a lot of students do Women in Business because they're an accounting major, or people joining Medicus because they want to be a doctor. While this can be a great way to connect with people in your academic sphere I encourage you to push yourself to do something that just makes you happy. For me that was improv comedy and student government. Those were two things that were interesting to me consistently throughout my undergraduate experience, and now reflect my major, and the fact that my first class tomorrow is standup comedy. Since picking extra curriculars is often less pressure than classes I believe your heart tends to lead you in the right direction. Five, sit in the first 10 rows of lecture halls. It will keep you engaged, and the unavoidable eye contact you'll make with your professors will force you to keep attending class because you'll know they will know when you're gone. Six, lastly, know that one, two, a dozen or 100 mistakes do not define your success here. I stand before you today a student body president having failed tests, dropped classes, changed my major twice, lost friends, and even set the fire alarm off in Petersen with my hair curler. Life happens and the great thing is that at Iowa you're never alone in your unique adversity. We're here to support you and encourage you from start to finish and forever after that. No matter where you lived before coming to Iowa, no matter if your parents are alumni, or if you're the first in your family to go to college, or are joining us from another country, no matter if you're coming here as a first year, or transferring from another school you are welcome here. You are a Hawkeye and you always will be. That means you're a part of the coined phrase Iowa nice. You'll look out for other Hawkeyes to keep them safe, and it means your civically engaged, and will vote if you're able to. If you're from Iowa please vote in your hometowns, and if you're not then consider Iowa City your home and vote here. I can see folks registering people out in the crowd, so if you are not registered please find one of them to do so. Being a Hawkeye means you're a family now, and I'm so excited to see what the class of 2022 will bring to our home. A last few things I wanted to mention to you all this is a green event so there are people around the Pentacrest to collect your envelopes to recycle them. There are restrooms located in Schaeffer and Macbride Hall, and at the conclusion of the program you'll be following the wonderful On Iowa! leaders through T. Anne Cleary Walkway to the president's home to enjoy the block party. Thank you for joining us on the Pentacrest for convocation. On behalf of the University of Iowa Student Government welcome home, go Hawks. (applause) (bells ringing) (brass music) - Welcome to the University of Iowa's 2018 convocation. I'd like to first thank the members of the University of Iowa Brass Quintet for playing for us, Professor Amy Schindler and Evan Fowler on trumpet. Professor Jeffrey Agrell on horn, Matt Halbert on trombone, and Professor John Manning on tuba. Let's give them a round of applause. (applause) The platform may be seated. My name is Tanya Uden-Holman, and I'm the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education, and a proud University of Iowa graduate. Speaking today will be University of Iowa President, Bruce Harreld, Vice President for Student Life, Melissa Shivers, Interim Executive Vice President and Provost, Sue Curry, and Darius Christiansen, class of 2022. (cheers and applause) On behalf of the Office of the Provost I want to welcome faculty, staff, and current students back to campus. Most of all on behalf of the entire campus community I want to welcome our newest first year, and transfer students to Iowa City. Welcome, everyone. (applause) Thank you so much for choosing to study at the University of Iowa. You are in the right place, and made the right decision to be a Hawkeye, and we're so glad that you're here. The purpose of this event called the University Convocation is to continue what you've been learning the past few days during On Iowa! about what it means to be a student at the University of Iowa. I thought this would be a good time to thank the people who make On Iowa! such a great experience. The On Iowa! team, Tina Arthur, Kate Garrett, Lisa Von Muenster, Brianne Schwarz, Taylor Ullrich, Linda Fountain, Suzette Blanchard and Cara Wiebel, along with over 1,000 University of Iowa staff, student and faculty volunteers. Please join me in giving them a round of applause. (applause) Where we are right now the Pentacrest is a historic place on campus. It's called the Pentacrest because of the five buildings surrounding us, the four academic buildings, Schaeffer Hall, Macbride Hall, MacLean Hall and Jessup Hall are named after University of Iowa presidents, and the building behind us the Old Capitol was the first capital for the state of Iowa. The University of Iowa is a special place because of the accomplishments of our students. This is a great university. I'd like to share with you advice that University of Iowa President, Walter Jessup, told first year students in 1916. "If you want a great university become a great student, "for if we can have great students who rise "to the opportunity of the university we can be great." Your journey to being a great student at the University of Iowa starts tomorrow, and our faculty and staff can't wait to help you get started on that journey. In meeting your classmates you've likely discovered that we have students from all over the United States, and across the world. Although you come from different places you'll have one important thing in common, you're all Hawkeys, so whether you're from Buffalo, Iowa or Buffalo, New York you're a Hawkeye. Whether you're from Denver, Iowa or Denver, Colorado you're a Hawkeye. Whether you're from Madrid, Iowa or Madrid, Spain you are a Hawkeye. Let me tell you three things about your Hawkeye family. First, it's a big family. Since 1847 the University of Iowa has awarded almost 393,000 degrees to our students. Second, it's a caring family. Hawkeyes look out for, respect and support each other. Finally, it's a proud family. Hawkeyes don't come to Iowa City to be average, and neither did you. The members of the Hawkeye family have been successful because of their University of Iowa education, and our Hawkeye family will help you find your success here at the University of Iowa. It's now my great pleasure to introduce you to the 21st President of the University of Iowa, Bruce Harreld. (applause) - Wow, welcome. You've joined a very elite team, you've made it. I hope you found the last week invigorating, exciting, but the real excitement begins in just a few hours. This is a wonderful tradition where we're going to spend a few moments reminding ourselves with you of our community. Our community I think you'll find is quite welcoming, it's quite inclusive, and it's quite collaborative. There is no one on this podium here today who during their own journeys through life academically or professionally didn't need help. That's why we're here to provide you that help which reinvigorates us, and helps move you towards your dreams. Please know that if you need help raise your hand, seek us out. We are here to make sure you get through the process. You will get through, and I think along the way you're gonna learn some amazing things. You're gonna meet some amazing people, and, hopefully, your lives will be changed forever. We prepare people here not just for a job, but for a lifetime of learning. Most of us in today's society change our positions and our jobs at least from a recent report I read 11.6 times. That means 11.6 times we need to lift ourselves up, and learn new teams, new organizations, new skills, and sometimes new professions. So the reason you're here, and the reason we're here to help you is to help you prepare for a lifetime of learning, a lifetime of engagement, and a lifetime of excitement. Now I'd like to also thank all of our faculty, and staff members on the podium here today. They all have other things to be doing, but I hope you view this as a symbolic and important gesture that they're making towards you, so let me end with what I often do the two most important new words in your language, and in mine and in ours, and maybe in all of the English language, go Hawks, welcome. (applause) Now it's my great pleasure to introduce a very new Hawk. Darius Christiansen joined us earlier in the week from New Orleans, Louisiana. Yeah, Darius, the podium is yours. (cheers and applause) - How y'all doing, what's up? Okay, first off before we start, you know, get into my piece I want to congratulate everybody on making it here safe and in one piece y'all we did it. Lord, we moved it in, oh, Jesus. First off, can I get a round of applause for my class, the class of 2022, thank you, clap for yourself. (applause) Thank you, okay, so moving on. We're all grown here, huh, y'all grown? Okay, you know, y'all ready for college? Classes start tomorrow, y'all ready? You got your books? Them things is expensive, but, okay, so let me tell you. Mostly I just told me your first college lie because I'm not ready for college, and I'm not ready for classes, so I know y'all not ready for class. As you all know I'm from New Orleans, which is beaucoup miles away from here that's around 920 plus miles, man, that's 920 miles away from my people, from my surroundings. That's 920 miles away from my friends, my culture, my food. Brother, that's 920 miles away from my dogs. I have three and it's that serious it's ridiculous, but to say all that I'm 920 miles away from everything that I used to know. There are people who have traveled farther than me, you know, I know that because it's kind of obvious that the class of 2022 is from, you know, different horizons. We're from different soils, different hoods, different miles and we all came here, though, and we are all gathered here today on the Pentacrest because we all have one goal in common, and that is to better our life, and to better our future. I'm gonna be real with y'all. I'm not one to be cliche and say, oh, this is a new chapter. I'm not about to baby y'all, y'all grown. I know your people told y'all this is a new chapter of your life you're gonna have to be different, you know. My people tod me that. They probably told y'all that when you moved in, when you graduated, when you chose Iowa, and we know that, so let's get it. My Mawmaw who is my grandma told me way when I was a little snot running New Orleans, you know, just running around that if you want the best out of life you have to grab it by the throat and make it sing, and when I say sing I mean as loud as bedlam. It's one notch below bedlam we can't get that loud, but you know up there, and just with that in mind I'm gonna say this, you know, if it was for me letting my nerves get in front of me I would not be up here standing with y'all, talking to y'all. Being 100% honest I would not have moved 920 miles away from my people if I let nerves get the best of me. While I've been an Iowa (mumbles) you know, I've heard a saying that says that everything that will be thrown your way here will be a choice that could allow you to change and grow as a person. Now whether or not it's a bad choice, or whether or not it's a good choice, you know, it would still allow you to change. In these next four years, in this next semester really, you know, we will all be changed some way, we will all be challenged in some way, but I want you to promise me one thing please, okay? All right, okay. Do not let any nerves, don't let anyone or any one failure make you doubt yourself, and your place at this university, all right? If you begin to feel that talk to somebody. You can talk to me, you can talk to one another, you could talk to your roommate, call your mama up, you know, do that, talk to someone, and, you know, if someone ever tries to say that you do not belong here because of your sexuality, because of your race, because of your university status, because of your gender, anything, you look them dead in the eyes, you stand strong in front of them and you say, what you so mad about, brother? Thank you, I bid all of y'all peace. I bid you all good grades. I bid you small failures, and I bid you memorable times. I'm gonna see all of you around class of 2022. We got an exciting year ahead of us. On Iowa! - [Students] Go. - Go, there you go. Thank y'all. (cheers and applause) - Thank you so much, Darius, that was incredible, thank you. It's now my great pleasure to introduce Vice President for Student Life, and Interim Chief Diversity Officer, Melissa Shivers. (cheers and applause) - Good afternoon, everyone. It is indeed my pleasure to welcome you, our newest Hawkeyes to the University of Iowa. Each August I find myself excited and anxious to begin the academic year. I bet you all can relate to that, too, but tonight as I look across the Pentacrest into your eager, nervous and cautiously optimistic faces I am reminded of the endless possibilities that are awaiting you here at the University of Iowa. At the University of Iowa you'll have an opportunity to participate in service opportunities across the United States and beyond. You'll also have the opportunity to cheer together for the Hawkeyes in Kinnick Stadium with thousands of your closest friends, and participate in our newest tradition of the Kinnick wave. Here it is also possible to work with researchers, and faculty members on significant research to advance the university's mission, and expand your own horizons. You'll also have a chance to participate in lectures and performances, concerts and programs that challenge, entertain and inform you, but here you're also given full permission to wear as much black and gold as you want in solidarity with current students, faculty staff, and alumni across this great country. Here it's also possible for you to earn an internship that will give you insight into your professional future, and perhaps even lead to a job when you graduate. The possibilities are indeed endless. As Hawkeyes we pride ourselves and our values of excellence, learning, community, diversity, integrity, respect and responsibility, and I hope that you will explore and embrace each of these. I invite you to take advantage of each opportunity as afforded to you as a University of Iowa Hawkeye. Leave your comfort zone, and know that there is a community that's here to support you. While today you might feel nervous and unsure, however, it's important to remember that you are surrounded by a seasoned group of your peers that were just a few years ago in your exact same seat experiencing the same feelings and emotions that you are right now. They have flourished and you will, too. You chose a campus community that is committed to your success, and I am certain that all of you will be the difference makers. In closing I hope that over the next few days, weeks and months you will continue to learn and experience the many aspects of Iowa that make it a special place. I hope you will enjoy them, and come to love this place as your new home. Thank you for letting the University of Iowa be a part of this incredible next step of your life's journey. You couldn't have chosen a better, brighter, black and gold path to follow. You belong here and we are thrilled to have you. I look forward to gathering with you in four years to celebrate as you begin your next step as a graduate of the class of 2022. It's my pleasure to introduce an Iowa tradition the singing of the Old Gold Hymn. (applause) ♪ O, Iowa, calm and secure on thy hill ♪ ♪ Looking down on the river below ♪ ♪ With a dignity born of the dominant will ♪ ♪ Of the men that have lived long ago ♪ ♪ O, heir of the glory of pioneer days ♪ ♪ Let thy spirit be proud as of old ♪ ♪ For thou shalt find blessing and honor and praise ♪ ♪ In the daughters and sons of Old Gold ♪ ♪ We shall sing and be glad with the days as they fly ♪ ♪ In the time that we spend in thy halls ♪ ♪ And in sadness we'll part when the days have gone by ♪ ♪ And the path turns away from thy walls ♪ ♪ 'Til the waters no more in thy river shall run ♪ ♪ 'Til the stars in the heavens grow cold ♪ ♪ We shall sing of the glory and fame thou hast won ♪ ♪ And the love that we bear for Old Gold ♪ (applause) - Thank you so much. Our quartet today was Kristin Ramseyer, soprano. Wen Chin Liu, alto, Grant Lyons, tenor, and Erik Doucette, bass. Let's give them another round of applause. They did an amazing job. (applause) Now it's my great pleasure to introduce Interim Executive Vice President and Provost, Sue Curry. (applause) - Well, let me add my welcome. This is the moment when you join us as University of Iowa students, as members of a community of scholars that stretches back to our founding in 1847. As the words of Old Gold remind us you are the heirs of a proud spirit of those scholars who have come before you. You, too, will leave a legacy to the scholars who will come after you. As you begin your academic lives at the University of Iowa each of you is making a commitment to excel academically, to dedicate yourself to your studies, and most important and I'm a parent I know this, to graduate from this great university. So please open the envelope marked with the presidential seal. Hold your envelope up when you're done so I can time this. All right. We got it. Now hold up what you got, all right. This tassel represents your pledge to the faculty, staff, students and alumni of the University of Iowa that you will strive to reach your academic goals. In turn, this tassel represents our pledge to you that we, the faculty, staff, students and alumni of the University of Iowa will provide an environment of academic challenge, and academic support in which you can succeed. Let this tassel serve as a reminder every day of why you are at the University of Iowa. In four short years you will again hold a tassel like this one as you join your classmates at your graduation ceremony. I look forward to that day and to congratulating you on your outstanding accomplishments. I will be basking in the pride in the class of 2022. Now let me invite President Harreld back to the podium. (applause) - So, once again, welcome. A few words, quick words of suggestion as you start next week. There are a lot of distractions here in our community. We have a lot of clubs, a lot of sports. By the way, those of you who haven't gone online, and looked at the Hancer performance schedule for the year do so now before the tickets sell out. The same for Voxman, the same for other activities across our campus. You are all going to get involved probably in one way or the other in a lot of clubs and activities. That's wonderful and, of course, we do have Hawkeye football coming up in a few weeks, but my honest recommendation to you is get into your course work. Get into the academic rhythm of the university. Probably relative to where you've come from you're gonna find the reading schedule, the homework, problem-solving, texts, and all the rest pretty daunting. Get into it and get well ahead of it if at all possible, and then start to explore the campus. If you do it the other way around sometimes it's hard to catch up, but most importantly remember we're here to help. As I said earlier, tap us on the shoulder, pull us in, let us know how we can help you get through the important next few weeks. To kick that off we have another tradition which is just a few blocks that way that we have blocked off the city streets, we've got a lot of food out there, we've got some ice-cream. We might have a marching band and a spirit squad, and who knows, Herky may show up. We have a big time University of Iowa block party to kick things off and to welcome all the class of 2022 officially to the University of Iowa, so let's all march up through the Anne Cleary Walkway, and let's go north and have some fun. Thank you, welcome. (applause)


Federal elections

Senate elections

At least 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be up for election, including all 34 Class III seats. Special elections may also be held to fill vacancies in the other two Senate Classes. As senators serve six-year terms, the last regularly-scheduled elections for Class III senators were held in 2016.

House of Representatives elections

All 435 voting seats in the United States House of Representatives will be up for election. The incumbents in these races will be determined in the 2020 House of Representatives elections and subsequent special elections. As these elections will be the first conducted after the post-2020 Census redistricting, several districts may lack an incumbent or have multiple incumbents.

Additionally, elections will be held to select the non-voting delegate for the District of Columbia, as well as four of the five non-voting delegates from U.S. territories.[a]

State elections

Gubernatorial elections

Elections will be held for the governorships of 36 U.S. states and three U.S. territories. Special elections may be held for vacancies in the other states and territories, if required by respective state and territorial constitutions. As most governors serve four year terms, the last regularly-scheduled elections for most seats up for election in 2022 were held in 2018. The governors of New Hampshire and Vermont each serve two year terms, so incumbents in those two states will be determined by the 2020 gubernatorial elections.

Legislative elections

The vast majority of states and territories will hold legislative elections in 2022. Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia will not hold state legislative elections, as those states all hold such elections in odd-numbered years. In states that use staggered terms, some state senators will not be up for election. As these elections will be the first conducted after the post-2020 Census redistricting, several legislative districts may lack an incumbent or have multiple incumbents.


  1. ^ The Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico serves a four-year term and will not be up for election in 2022.
