Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Dear UNI Family,

We have a lot to be thankful for at the University of Northern Iowa. As a 139-year-old institution, we have managed to sustain our distinguished legacy of excellence and service. I am excited to work collaboratively to uphold this proud tradition for the benefit of future generations. I know all of you share these same sentiments.

Let us also be thankful for each other during this time of year. We have so many creative and committed students, dedicated faculty and staff, and loyal alumni and friends. Thank you for all you do to make UNI an inspiring and exciting place to be.

Judy and I wish each of you a joyous and peaceful Thanksgiving. Please enjoy the company of your loved ones, think about the importance of old and new friends and be safe during your travels.

Purple for Life!

Bill Ruud
