What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University has a wide variety of majors, minors, and extracurricular activities to explore. There are many food options on campus with plenty others within walking distance. However, the class size at Iowa State does not actually decrease that much by the time you graduate. You can expect that most of your classes with have 60 people or more throughout your four years. Moreover, the town of Ames is adorable and filled with small businesses to explore. Even though Ames is pretty open minded, most Iowa State students are not. Most students come from small Iowa towns and bring with them small town attitudes. Most are not welcome to the LGBTQ+ community nor people of color. While the university itself preaches about the importance of diversity, many students do not share this ideology. Iowa State University offers a cheap education, but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

Great place to learn and socialize, as freshman l enjoy my time, learn to live on my own and getting great support from my advisor and family. I would like to get scholarship to help paying some of my tuition fees. I experience for the first time heavy snow but I enjoy every minute of it. Working on campus dinning hall give me the opportunity to improve my communication skills, leadership and solve problems

I love Iowa State University. I have met some of my very best friends here. My education has always been a priority to me, and the availability of the professors and different help hours along with tutors for different classes, is something I am always sure to take advantage of!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University is the best college. It has a beautiful campus, great housing options, wonderful classes and opportunities for advancement. As you'd say, 10/10 recommend!! There are lots of clubs and activities to do on campus. The Cyclone Cinema is one of my favorites. Big hit movies that had just come out in theaters are free on campus. It is pretty great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As it is known, Iowa State University’s College of Engineering is among the finest engineering schools in the nation. It is the seventh-largest school of engineering in the States of America. The engineering program offered is ranked between the 37th position in the country and between the 21 spots among the public institutions. The excellent performance of the university has led it to be ranked 41st overall and 20th among the public universities that are found in the United States. The price paid at the university goes hand in hand with what they offer as the quality of education lands the university the 23rd position. I am interested in pursuing a software engineering degree. Iowa State is the only school that offers a software engineering degree in Iowa. The university is located in a place where people are friendly, honest, and polite to each other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University is such a welcoming and safe environment for students and it makes it so fun to adjust to college life. Everyone is warm and kind because everyone just wants to get to know each other. It was instantly my new home away from home and I couldn't have made a better choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy visiting the campus on multiple occasions! There are so many interesting things on campus and I heard that there are many clubs and organizations that students can join. I will say that the dorms are bigger than some of the other campuses. I do not really know about off-campus living at the moment. There are many useful services Iowa State provides for their student. It is easy to get the time to know the professors and the class size is a good size; Not too big and not too small. There are so many opportunities at Iowa State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Iowa State University. Ames feels like home to me. It is a small town but there are plenty of things to see and do within campus and outside of campus. And campus is all in one area so it's easy to get around just by walking, but there are buses to get you around in campus and outside. Everyone is so nice and the professors really want to help you learn. I am proud to be an Iowa State Cyclone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best way to help my family and I was to study abroad and get a quality education. While researching universities and degree programs in computer science, I found IOWA State University, and after analyzing much of what that university has to offer, I was surprised. One of the things I had in mind for a good education is real experience and practice; This university's computer science program has just that with the many internship opportunities in the local community. This allows students to have a fundamental opportunity to learn and also gain work experience. Volunteering experiences are also available that serve not only to help others, but also to improve learning in a specific field. I'm sure ISU is the right choice for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved the campus and I could see myself as a Cyclone. They did a wonderful job of making their campus look so nice. They have an amazing design program and have a great engineering program which are two things I am interested in. The vibe that I got at the school was an amazing one.
