My name is Sydney Zatz and I am a sophomore at the University of Iowa. I was born and raised in Eagan, Minnesota and I am currently working towards earning my undergraduate degree here at Iowa. I am double-majoring in Journalism and Sports Studies.
Ever since middle school I've always been known for being actively involved outside of the classroom. In high school I was an avid choir student. I also spent time working with the theater department and other various student orgs. I got involved with my high school newscast, Eagan AM my junior year and from there my passion for journalism was born.
Here at Iowa I have continued to become involved outside of the classroom. I work with the Big Ten Student U, S.T.A.T. (Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow) and I am assistant producing and a weather anchor for Daily Iowan TV this fall. I also have my own radio show on the student-run radio station KRUI and I am a TA for the Passport Project. Last year I also took part in Dance Marathon and EdOnCampus.
In my free time I enjoy going to concerts and binge-watching reality TV. I am also a content creator for the odyssey. I enjoy traveling and aspire to travel to as many countries as possible. If I could travel to any place in the world, I would choose Greece.
