Learning Communities

The day before genetics students embark on their first day of classes at Iowa State, they head to adviser Dr. Lois Girton’s house for ice cream. But this get-together isn’t about hot fudge and sprinkles. It’s about students getting to know each other – and campus. Because there’s one trick Dr. Girton uses that helps students get to know their new community – they have to use CyRide to get to her house.
