What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University is a pleasant university with a strong focus on producing well-rounded graduates. They make sure students can find help not only concerning academics but also extracurricular activities. Even though there is lots of room for improvement, Iowa State works hard to provide a safe, diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State is a very well known school. It has impressed even more after my first year attending there. People attending and working at Iowa State love to help out as far as adapting to the school, if you're confused or lost, and even if you just need someone to interact with. I am happy to say that I am attending Iowa State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

“Iowa? Who would want to go to school in Iowa?” That question is actually something that I had asked myself before I visited Iowa State University. I am from Minnesota and we Minnesotans have determined that Iowa is the most boring place in the Midwest. So, when my friend from high school convinced me to visit Iowa State I knew I wouldn’t be easily swayed. I visited the school thinking that it would be the worst school I visited. Boy have I never been happier to be wrong. Stepping onto campus was so amazing. ISU has one of the most gorgeous campuses I have ever visited. The people were friendly, insightful, and honest. I could feel something different about Iowa State compared to other universities. The energy and life that was given off there was unlike any other school I had visited and I visited over 15 schools. It wasn’t long after coming home from the visit that I knew that I had to go back. I have been a student at Iowa State University for over a year now and I cannot be gladder that I decided to make the decision to attend. I won’t lie and say that ISU is perfect. It has flaws, but no University is perfect. I think so many people go to a school for four years hoping that it will be time well spent and that they can graduate knowing that it was worth it. I think I can say that I am very lucky because Iowa State has already made me sure its worth it after just one year! It has great academics, an amazing community, interesting events, over 850 clubs, and an opportunity for an amazing adventure! So, if someone were to ask me: “Who would want to go to school in Iowa?” I would say: “Me! I would want to go to school in Iowa! And anyone who says otherwise has just missed the greatest diamond in the rough they could ever find!”

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's alright. Its a college. Its the type of campus seen on television or movies based on a the college experience. Seems like Scream or a horror movie would be filmed there based off of how creepy some of the buildings look at night. Still a nice place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even though Ames, Iowa is in the middle of nowhere, Iowa State makes up for the location. Once a month we have events with visiting celebrities, free food, and small activities like bingo or karaoke- all for free! It's also a fairly safe campus; it's not rare to see someone taking a jog at 1 AM. Academics are quite demanding, but professors truly care about you as a student and will help as much as they can for you to succeed if you ask. And greek life is HUGE so ISU is definitely the place to go if you decide to go greek.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've lived in Iowa my whole life so my options for university were going to be UNI, U of I, and ISU. I decided on ISU because I am in a stem major and I felt much more at home on campus than I had at the other public universities in Iowa. I am very grateful that I decided on ISU because I've joined a sorority, made many friends, and have exceeded my goals academically. They say that college is the best time of your life, and if that is true I'll have plenty of great memories to look back on!

Iowa State University overall is a great college. The campus is large but has many buses to get you where you need to go or at least close to. There are a wide variety of educational opportunities here between classes, clubs, Greek community and etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State has a great campus that is mostly all grouped in one place with a few outliers like the veterinary college. One downside is that Ames is on the smaller side so there isn't a whole lot to do around town, but there are a lot of student activities to get involved in and other events that take place on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University, has all that a university should give, it is surrounded by a great culture that encourage the students to study what they truly love,to be themselves, take opportunities with the study abroad and internship programs. As well as, you can always fell at home due to the friendly atmosphere, that it is always present. Iowa State has a lot to offer to every single student from all over the world from sports, clubs, greek life and exploring all the activities that the university organized so there is always something to do in ISU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I find Iowa State University to be wonderful. The scenery is amazing. There are many trees and flowers all over campus, so bring some allergy medication if you need it. The food is usually great, but some of their new recipes are duds. The dining halls can get a little repetitive, so I suggest picking a different hall to go to sometimes. The classes are typically huge, so prepare to schedule meetings with professors in advance, or never see them. Most professors show a genuine interest in teaching their field of study and answering students' questions, however there are always a few bad apples in the bunch. Be careful going near the frat houses on weekends, as there are a lot of parties. And last but not least get a lot of scholarships and grants applied for in advance, because it is going to be excessively expensive.
