University of Northern Iowa students examine artifacts as a part of a course in museum studies.

Imagine spending your days surrounded by the colorful, flashing neon lights of the infamous, fabulous city of Las Vegas. That’s how University of Northern Iowa alumna Floris Lafontant ‘12 spent two years of her life post-graduation.
