“It was so wonderful to be back at Graceland University to visit with some incredible students and faculty and get a glimpse at the beautiful facilities. Having played 5 on 5 girls’ basketball at this campus, I know just how important Graceland University is not only to its students but also the surrounding community.” – U.S. Representative Cindy Axne (IA-3)

Axne concluded her visit with a tour of the recently renovated Newcom Student Union and the Shaw Center for Performing Arts.
