The University of Iowa College Republicans exist to promote conservative and Republican ideals, foster strong student leadership, develop life-long friendships, and most importantly: TO HAVE FUN!!!
All Republicans or politically interested students are welcome to attend our meetings, join the club, participate in our many social events, help further the agenda and goals of the party and club, and elect candidates that will promote our positive message.
Check out our calendar to see what we have coming up!
We meet in 61 Schaeffer Hall every Tuesday at 9 pm. If you have any questions, please contact us!
Conservatives in Iowa City: it is time to come out of the closet!
I know at times it feels like you are the only person that disagrees with this liberal town, but you are not alone! We are asking all Republicans, Independents leaning right, or just anyone slightly frustrated with the current one party controlling every level of Johnson County, and some levels of Iowa and U.S. government to STAND UP!
Conservative Coming Out Week will be April 18th – April 22nd. Here is the schedule of events that will be going on throughout the week:
Monday: Who is Conservative Anyway? Guess which athletes, movie stars, and performing artists are Republican. 11-1 on Kautz Plaza off of the T. Anne Cleary Walkway
Tuesday: Red vs. Blue Blood Drive from 2 to 6pm at the Carnival Room in Burge. Competition between the Republicans and Democrats for a good cause!
-College Republican meeting that night at 8pm in 71 Schaeffer Hall with showing of “Journeys with George” in honor of President George W. Bush.
Wednesday: Come pick up your Doctors Notice to miss class for “sick of stress”, just like the Wisconsin public employees during the union protests from 11 to 1 on the Pentacrest.
Thursday : Red vs Blue games! Beat the UDems in kickball and flag football from 4-6 in Hubbard Park. Wear your respective political party’s color!
Stick around for an Animal Rights BBQ at 6pm.
Friday: Wear RED Day! Come out of the closet and show your true colors!
Our next meeting is Tuesday April 12 at 9pm in 71 Shaeffer Hall. We will be getting ready for our annual Conservative Coming Out Week including making signs and finalizing the events. Come check it out and share your ideas!
