Above and Beyond UI photographer shares aerial views of campus community

This fall Spectator photographer Tom Jorgensen had the opportunity to see the University of Iowa campus from a perspective most of us will never experience: a bird’s-eye view. From a helicopter, he was able to peer down on landmarks like Old Capitol and Kinnick Stadium and check out new UI additions such as the State Hygienic Lab and the College of Public Health Building. Click on the images below to see a slide show of his favorite shots.
