First-Year Council Header
 
First-Year Council was created by the Government of the Student body in 1996 due to the overwhelming desire of the first-year class to form a distinct and unifying voice on the Iowa State University campus. First Year Council (originally known as “Freshmen Council”) is dedicated to the task of educating, supporting and representing the first-year class, as well as preparing them for future leadership roles at Iowa State University and beyond.
