IOWA CITY, IA (06/09/2021)-- This spring, some 5,300 University of Iowa undergraduate, graduate, and professional students received their degrees under extraordinary circumstances. With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to upend traditional educational practices across campus and the country, the 2020-21 academic year has been a challenge.

David Marquez of Silver City, NM was among the students conferred their degrees. Marquez was a student in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences whose program of study was English and Creative Writing. The degree awarded was a Bachelor of Arts.
