Campus remains political
The College Republicans
The College Republicans advocate for conservative and GOP positions. The group frequently joins the Johnson County and Iowa Republican Party for events — including a recent press conference in which students explained why Iowans should oppose Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign.
University Democrats promote liberal policies and the Democratic Party. Students have hosted first lady Michelle Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and other national figures. As with their Republican counterparts, members will be active in the run-up to the 2016 Iowa caucuses.
Young Americans for Liberty
A partial successor to Students for Ron Paul, Young Americans for Liberty focuses on pushing for a greater focus on the Constitution and liberty. Students are known for their protests around campus — including one in which they passed out fake pot brownies on 4/20 as a way to discuss marijuana policy.
