Jake Parks enjoys learning how the physical world works; he has perpetually been in awe about the infinitude of the universe and its intricacy. So, the decision to major in physics was not difficult for him to make.
The decision to enroll in the University of Northern Iowa was not difficult, either; he found the sense of community here overwhelming.
“People here, from students to faculty, truly care about you,” Jake says. “It makes the intimidating experiences of college much more manageable.”
In fact, the experience has been awesome for him.
