UNI Will Be Featured On New Amazon Prime Show
Panther Pride will soon be coming to your television screens!
The University of Northern Iowa will be the subject of an upcoming television show. The College Tour is an Amazon Prime Video show that tells the story of different colleges across the United States.
Each episode focuses on one university, with the ultimate goal to help connect prospective students to their perfect college.
"From campus life, academics, housing, sports, activities, and much more… each student driven segment will give young people an inside look at what it’s truly like being a student at the featured college or university."
The television crew for this show came to the Cedar Valley during the fall of 2022. They followed and documented ten different UNI students' experiences at the college.
In an interview with the Northern Iowa, UNI’s Director of University Relations Pete Moris said that the ten students,
"...did an amazing job. Really what we were trying to do was get a cross section of not only different backgrounds, majors, and hometowns. Our goal was to find some folks who were passionate about UNI and to share their experiences.”
The University of Northern Iowa episode is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video this summer! While the general public won't be able to watch the show until June 29th, UNI students, staff, and other locals will be able to see it on Wednesday, February 8th. The premiere is set to begin at 7:30 PM.
You can be a part of the virtual watch party as well. At 7:30 PM, the episode will be live streaming on YouTube. Check it out here when the premiere starts!
