Mercedes Morris

"I enjoy working at Hawkeye because I get to meet a lot of new people, make new connections, and two days are ever the same."

@ Hawkeye

As an Admissions Representative at Hawkeye I visit high schools, keep in contact with prospective students and help answer their questions, help plan events, and attend college fairs.

I started at Hawkeye as a student in 2011. Then in August of 2013 I began as an Admissions Representative.
