PARSIPPANY — John Hastings was among the nearly 2,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students conferred their degrees last month at the University of Iowa.
Hastings was a student in the Graduate Management Program whose program of study was the Professional MBA Program. The degree awarded was a Master of Business Administration.
Hastings and fellow graduates engaged, excelled, and stretched to reach their goals-often overcoming the obstacles created by a pandemic.
One doctoral candidate, for example, has made great research advances in her exploration of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. A biomedical engineering student continues working to make the world a better place for heart disease patients and those in immigration limbo. And a student in communication sciences and disorders helped build from the ground up a free assistive technology consultation program for Iowa families of children with reading disabilities.
Year after year, Iowa students have pushed to achieve more and to come together for the greater good — that’s the Hawkeye Way. As the fall 2022 cohort of new graduates enter the next stage of their lives, they leave the Iowa campus full of potential and promise.
Eleven percent of the undergraduates graduated with multiple degrees, and, as a group, undergraduates posted a 3.17 cumulative grade point average during their stay in Iowa.
