“As an alumni, a BIG Dream Gathering is a great way to connect with students who are getting ready to graduate and would be a good fit for us. I was also able to reconnect with people I already knew in a new way!” – Candy Streed – Program & Partnership Director, Silos and Smokestacks.
“A BIG Dream Gathering is great for a college campus because it provides an opportunity for college students to think outside the box and help to make what seems like an unattainable dream a reality. Ours was an awesome mix of alumni, community residents and college students all gathering in one place helping each other get started on making their dreams come true!” – Connie Hansen – University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association
“The BIG Dream Gathering was one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced.” – Keisha – Student – University of Northern Iowa
“A BIG Dream Gathering is great for a college campus because it gives students, faculty and the community the opportunity to learn from and inspire each other in a setting where they are all on the same level as dreamers, free from the traditional hierarchy of an educational institution.” – Alli Born – John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center
