UIU Student Kat Kazluski

Katrina Kazluski

Hi my name is Katrina Kazluski, but I got by Kat. I am from Poplar Grove Illinois, and am on the women’s soccer team here at Upper Iowa. I’m also in the Sorority KZT and am Majoring in Biology. I wanted to join the SPC to help support the longevity of this club and provide students the opportunity to express their ideas on ways to better campus.

Jordan Zarate

Hi my name is Jordan Zarate, I grew up in Hilo, Hawaii and I’m an Exercise Science & Sports Studies major with a minor in Psychology here at Upper Iowa. After graduating I plan to continue my academic career, getting my Masters in Athletic Training. Here at Upper Iowa I work in Student Life and am a Resident Assistant here on campus. Along with that, I am on the women’s soccer team as well. I chose to join the SPC to help make the school better not for just current students, but for future Peacocks as well.
