One final Wave: Iowa class of 2021 concludes time as students with special Hawkeyes Wave
The best tradition in college football made a special appearance Sunday afternoon.
The tradition of waving to the Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital at the end of the first quarter during football season has been one of the best moments throughout home games in Kinnick Stadium. Traditionally contained to Saturdays in the fall, the Hawkeyes had a chance to see the tradition this weekend.
With commencement activities going on Sunday to celebrate the accomplishments of the 2021 class, the graduating seniors concluded their time as Hawkeye students with one more Wave to the hospital. Needless to say, it is just as special as during football season.
