College Admissions Summer Bike Tour of Iowa

Dear Iowans,

As many of you may know, next week 12,000 cyclists will converge on your state to block your roads and eat most of your corn and pork chops, while in the process slowly making their way from the west side to the east side (hopefully downhill the whole way!).

It just so happens that a member of the admissions staff is going to be participating. I thought it would be worth checking to see if there are any interested students in the parts of Iowa we are going through (check who have any questions about the application or the admissions process, or would like to meet with and talk to someone who knows a bit about the application, the school, the city, etc.

So, if you live in Sergeant Bluff, Ida Grove, Audubon, Waukee, Newton, Marengo, Coralville, Muscatine or any of the towns that the race will be passing through (all are listed on the website), please do let me (Austin Bean) know. You can get my email address off the main admissions website, or just post a comment. I would be happy to meet with or talk to anyone with any questions. Perhaps we will make this a yearly event in the future!
