Katherine Johnson Suski spoke about the application process at ISU and efforts to make university accessible to students with various immigration statuses. Host, Gale Seiler, aired sounds of the 1st Annual DACA 5K which was held on campus on Saturday despite the snow and sleet. This was a fundraiser to support immigrant students, who are not eligible for most forms of financial aid.
