What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being that I'm an out of state student, I was worried about finding my place at Iowa State. However, I quickly found quality friends, enriching extracurricular activities, and reliable staff and faculty. Iowa State goes to great lengths to give students the resources to live and learn healthfully and will success. I’ve personally used many of these resources to address financial, academic, social, and mental and physical health concerns. Without the helpfulness and knowledge of those who I’ve reached out to, I wouldn’t be where I am today. The bulk of the staff and faculty truly care about their students and are willing to lend a hand whenever and wherever they can. I’ve been challenged to grow, pushed to perform, and encouraged to pursue my goals. I know that once I graduate and move on, I’ll be prepared to enter the job force or higher education scene ready to give it my all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student I remember loving campus life. During the summer I would walk around campus, and in the winter there were the occasional snowball fights. As time went by I got involved in the Greek community and loved how involved we were with the community and how reliable my brothers were. If I were to change one thing about ISU, it would be to have smaller class sizes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University has been my dream school since I was a little girl. Hopefully attending in the fall with my big brother, it would be my dream come true. I Love the Cyclone atmosphere. Academics are on top. We go all out for game days even if we don't have a chance against a team! Iowa State has the best fan base and is more supportive than any school i've ever known. The city of Ames offers everything you need. Iowa State feels like my home, it makes you feel at home no matter where you are. Once a cyclone always a cyclone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University sets you up for success and also is helping me to come out of my shell and become the person I want to be. . The professors and staff are very passionate about their professions and are very helpful because they want to share their knowledge with students. Classes may be difficult but are always fair. Campus overall promotes healthy living by offering many clubs and sports based on interests, bike paths, and a centralized campus where buildings are close to each other so students can walk. The student environment has also helped me to become more confident to be me and learn that I can do more than what I thought I could. Also, the academics push me in a way that I'm able to challenge myself to do better everyday in order to get the best education possible. The surrounding area of Ames is quiet. Outside of the business district Ames is very laid back and homey. Completely different from dorm life, which was always busy and a fun way to stay a part of campus' many activities and clubs. The only downside of attending Iowa State is the cost of attendance as an out-of-state student. But, the campus and treatment from faculty create a great environment and the clubs and dorm living create memories that are priceless.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State is a very diverse school. Think of Iowa state as a small city. The campus is so large, it is basically a large town! There are many things to do on campus, you just need to be active! For sports, we have many many intramural sports as well as club. Ranging from rock climbing to soccer, there are facilities that provide state of the art equipment that make playing fun. Basketball seems to be our specialty while Football and Soccer is not our strength. There are a number of fraternities and sororities however, I do not know much about any. I have friends that are in fraternities and they seem calm and not the party type. There are definitely people that party three times a week, mostly on the weekends, but it does not get over hand. At Iowa State, you will get great education in some great classrooms. Although most of the buildings are hundreds of years old, the inside is remodeled and they are basically new. Large lecture halls range from 200 to 500 capacity making the learning environment more active. There are multiple dining halls throughout the campus. There is a dinning hall within half a mile of one another and some are better than others. For the most part they are decent and usually have a different cultural theme throughout the week. The housing here on campus is convenient because there is always a dinning hall near. Most rooms are a few years old but not too bad in conditions. The dorm I stay at, Wilson Hall, is newly remodeled and one of the cheapest on campus. Overall Iowa State is a remodeled school that grows every year and is exciting and diverse. The campus is very green and clean. There is are programs such as SafeRide where you can call if you feel threatened and a police will arrive. I feel very safe on campus and like to walk around at night because the night life during the weekends gets entertaining. There are plenty of clubs and extracurricular activities all around. Everyone on campus is very friendly and becoming part of a club can become fun and making friends will be much quicker. Hope you choose Iowa State and become a Cyclone!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Iowa State University and I cannot wait to attend school there this Fall! The turn out for sporting events is tremendous, even the less popular sports like gymnastics and softball. The residence halls and dining halls are all nice, nothing extreme but the dorms and apartments are relatively spacious. ISU is also very safe and the community is amazing. I can't wait to be a Cyclone!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State has been a great college for me, I like the large campus and the variety of students. There are tons of clubs to pick from, and they are all different and enjoyable. I live on campus, but getting an apartment next year. Dorms are a great way to meet people your first year, and you also get to meet people in your classes that might have the same major. Also sports games are so fun, lots of people go, even in bad weather. Overall Iowa State has a good community as well as extra activities, which is important to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University is a world-class science, technology, and engineering university that offers the best education for the tuition. The campus is beautiful and exciting to explore. The faculty is incredibly well-educated and approachable, some being the leading people in their fields of research. Party life is unlike any other college, and connection possibilities are countless.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Iowa State University is positive. Campus is absolutely stunning, no matter the weather or time of day. Campus offers lots of green space, beautiful architecture amongst buildings and plenty of sidewalks for convenience. The overall feel and aura of the campus is calm and peaceful. I think there could be better ways to make students feel safer on campus, but the police are really involved and lots of students respect them. I highly recommend Iowa State University.
