Regent mascots "Celebrate Council Bluffs"

The Southwest Iowa Regents Resource Center (SWIRRC) participated for the first time in the annual Celebrate Council Bluffs parade on Saturday, May 17.

Mascots from all three universities were a huge hit with the nearly 5,000 spectators along the parade route, including the mayor, city council, legislators, and many community groups. Herky, Cy and TC shook hands, posed for pictures and engaged the crowd all along the two-mile route.

SWIRRC is located on the Iowa Western Community College campus and assists southwest Iowans wishing to learn more about Iowa's Regent institutions. Whether you are an incoming freshman, transfer or nontraditional student, SWIRRC can help you begin your journey as a University of Northern Iowa, University of Iowa or Iowa State University student — online or on campus.
