Banfill graduates from the University of Iowa

IOWA CITY, IA — This spring, some 5,300 University of Iowa undergraduate, graduate and professional students received their degrees under extraordinary circumstances.

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to upend traditional educational practices across campus and the country, the 2020-21 academic year has been a challenge.

Trenten Banfill of Lakeport, California, was among the students conferred their degrees.

Banfill was a student in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences whose program of study was Informatics. The degree awarded was a Bachelor of Arts.

For more than a year, Banfill and other Iowa students have made sacrifices to maintain health and safety-taking online courses, wearing face masks and being mindful of social distance.
