Campus Involvement: Orientation Adviser for Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc. | Member of UNIdos and Ethnic Student Promoters
 
Why did I chose UNI? When I first transferred from DMACC I wanted to be a teacher so when I was looking into different universities I decided UNI would be the best choice considering they had the best education program in Iowa and campus wasn't too far from home. Flash forward a few years and I am no longer a teaching major but my passion for education has not changed. Instead of teaching I would like to work in higher education helping other first generation students from diverse backgrounds, like myself, be successful in a college or university setting.

Hello my name Patten Tody. I’m a Junior at UNI majoring in Communication with a minor in Family Services, with an emphasis in entrepreneurship. I am the Vice President African Union on the UNI campus. I'm originally from West Africa, Liberia but my family and I moved to America in the summer of 2006. Out of the 53 countries in Africa, I have only been to three so far that I can personally remember for myself. I might have been more if you ask my parents. I was born in Ivory Coast, lived in Liberia for a good amount of my baby years and then we moved to Ghana. I speak two languages. I speak American’s English and Liberian’s English which is Colocwa. I’m super excited for the school year!
