“A scenario that plays out a lot is a first-year student goes to a house party, and it’s not an environment they want to be in,” said UISG President Nic Pottebaum. “If they don’t know how to get home, they can use this SafeRide program.”
"UI sophomore Colleen Cann, 18, said she also used Nite Ride several times last year – mostly to get home from the bars or the library. She said SafeRide is a much more realistic way to keep people at off-campus house parties out of danger."

"All-nighters easier at IMU" written by Josh O'Leary (Iowa City Press Citizen)
"Beginning this week, the IMU is once again staying open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the fall and spring semesters, giving students a place to hunker down even after the University of Iowa’s Main Library and other studying hotspots have closed for the night."
“This is the only 24-hour building on campus accessible to all undergraduate students,” said UISG President Nic Pottebaum, who noted that students have appreciated the option of being able to study late or hang out with friends at the IMU."
"Pottebaum said early semester counts usually find 100 students or so a week coming through the IMU after hours, while late in the semester it’s more than 500 a week."
