CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa will host an exhibit at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 9 through 19. Fairgoers can stop by the exhibit in the Varied Industries Building between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day.

The state of Iowa is home to more than 60,000 UNI alumni and more than 12,000 UNI students and families. These UNI fans and thousands of others will have the opportunity to take their picture with a life size cutout of UNI's mascot, TC, pick up an athletic poster, pennants and get a Panther tattoo.

Future Panthers, prospective students and families can visit with UNI alumni, faculty, staff and students to learn more about UNI. New to this year's exhibit are computer stations for alumni to electronically sign a guest book and for prospective students and parents to submit questions. University Book & Supply will sell UNI clothing, Panther gear and memorabilia in conjunction with the exhibit.
