What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State is home to almost 40,000 students and many others outside of campus. Being on campus is like a whole new world. I grew up in Ames and decided to stay because not only have many of my family members gone to Iowa State and received their degrees, but I loved the atmosphere in which it provided for me. I am a current sophomore studying Exercise Science. After Iowa State I plan to continue my education to become a certified Prosthetist and Orthotist fitter to work with veterans who have returned home from active duty with a need for artificial limbs. I have met so many amazing people here who have been so influential to me as a student. Throughout my journey at ISU, I have had so many amazing opportunities that make me feel prepared for the future. I have acquired an excellent education as well as personal skills that will allow me to communicate effectively in the workplace. Currently I am involved in a research study called P.A.A.S, which is Physical Activity and Aging Study. In this study we have participants that are sixty five years and older come in for cognitive testing and simple physical activity tests to see how aging effects the body and brain. I feel so lucky to be apart of this research team as these experiences will be helpful for me in the future. The range of classes offered at Iowa State is abundant. There are many classes offered as half semester classes which allow you to take classes that are not apart of your major directly, but can be taken as an elective or just for fun! Taking these classes has been an excellent source for me to broaden my knowledge and learn more about little subjects like geology or meteorology which are a few of my interests outside of Exercise Science. Professors, faculty, and staff want all students to succeed. I know that I have been able to go to my professors during their office hours which is a good time to ask them questions about my exams or homework problems. A lot of professors on campus are conducting research in the labs here which makes it easy to get involved with them and their research if you apply yourself to their classes and do well and make a good impression on them. Iowa State as a whole has opened my eyes in terms of community involvement. There are many different clubs and organizations to get involved with that goes towards more than helping the university, but helping the community of Ames as a whole. For example, there is a club called Be the Match. Within this club it allows members to sign up to donate bone marrow which then will be used to treat children that have bone marrow diseases such as blood cancer. By donating bone marrow, it's giving a second chance to a child in need and saving a family from heartbreak. Aside from medical breakthroughs that students can be involved with, there are many other clubs that are just for fun! The resources on campus are also a great addition to this incredible university. For example on campus, we have access to a Student Health Center, Student Counseling, as well as a Student Success Center along with many others. The Student Health Center is good for when you don't want to go to the hospital for a simply cold or flu. They make it simple and easy to make appointments and fill prescriptions. Student counseling is offered for students who still don't feel at home here despite the many opportunities offered, but also for those who have a hard time managing their mental health. Mental health is one of the major problems plaguing college students all over. We feel that we have to study all the time in order to be successful without taking the time to relax and have fun. Student counseling offers students free therapy sessions for those hard and struggling times. Lastly, the Student Success Center is where many students utilize their academic coaching programs, writing and media center, and if they have learning disabilities, they can get help there too. Academic coaching helps students breakdown their weekly work load and study habits into manageable time frames that helps you stay on top of things without having to cram the night before. The Writing and Media Center is were many people go to get their papers and resumes peer reviewed which helps the student make any changes before submitting the paper or giving the resume to a future employer. Learning disabilities are accommodated at the Student Success Center so that way if, for example, students have a hard time with online tests, they are able to get special accommodations for paper tests. These are just a few of the amazing qualities Iowa State University has to offer. There are many more but the list goes on and on. I love being a student at Iowa State and I am grateful for all of the opportunities I have been given.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would say that the campus of Iowa State University is comforting, relaxing, and beautiful. There are many great people with many different opinions and lifestyles, which is good to have in an educational region. The professors are understanding, and they're usually available to talk to. The community in Ames is a breath of fresh air; the people are kind, the shops are easy to get to and reliable. The biggest issue I have with the city is the traffic can become congested. In conclusion, I would say that Iowa State University is a great place to learn and grow in many ways, and benefits greatly from being close to Ames.

SI is supplemental Instruction, which a free 50 minute session of review.

On top of providing students with an excellent education, Iowa State University gives students the opportunity to discover themselves. Here on campus, there are people and clubs for everyone. It is hard to feel like a stranger when you are attending the great Iowa State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have wanted to go to Iowa State University ever since I visited the campus in the fall of 2017. I fell in love with the buildings, the people, and the university itself. I went to a football game the first night I visited and seeing all the people come together to pour all of their love and support into one team warmed my heart more than anything. I finally made my choice in the spring of 2018 to attend Iowa State. Once classes began and I explored more of campus, I knew it was the university for me. The professors and staff are amazing and are always willing to help their students no matter how big the class size is. They always advertise their office hours and their emails for any questions or struggling students. Choosing Iowa State University to further my career in substance abuse counseling is one of the best decisions I could have made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Iowa State is a good school. The teachers are very helpful and there is an overall feeling of being a part of a team. And the classes are not overly difficult. Financial aid is not crazy hard to get a hold of but I have had trouble getting scholarships.
