Student Union is the voice of the college student. Our goal is to provide an outlet for any student who wishes to share their media on the sports we all love! Our contributors are enrolled at schools all over the country and come together to share their talent and passion of collegiate athletics. They have no restrictions on what they can do; We simply ask that they tell a great story about all of the fun, quirky, and interesting topics that are involved with college sports! Student Union provides a platform to share those stories and highlight their creativity. Our contributors are the most important part of Student Union and our goal is to make sure that their voices get heard! Welcome to the U!

If you have questions or you are a student who would like to contribute to Student Union, feel free to contact us at

"Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win." - Bobby Knight

Grew up in Illinois. Educated at the University of Iowa with an MBA from Arizona State University. I love sports, pop culture, music, and technology. Student Union allows me to combine these passions and help others. Welcome to the U!

"Journalism is merely history's first draft." - Geoffrey C. Ward

Studied journalism in the cornfields of Iowa. Got lost heading west and landed in the Arizona desert. I believe everyone has an interesting story to tell, and enjoy using Student Union as a vehicle to explore and share them. Thanks for visiting!

"That's football." - Kirk Ferentz

Studied sports and health studies at Iowa, spent a little time in the Desert before finding my way back to God's Country. I handle the communication with our writers and our social media presence (I'm the one that talks about Lane Kiffin way too much).  I love Student Union, because it allows college students a platform to write about things that they are passionate about, and gives me a place to make snarky Joey Freshwater jokes.
