I love the school I can here for the great education and the reputation for future success. One of the reasons I cam was to have a good reputation for coaching hockey in the future and any other endeavors I may have planned. It may be cold during the winters but the campus is beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Iowa State University. I have been given incredible opportunities to get involved and make my mark. I have made friends that will last forever! I have never felt unsafe, and am always excited to see what the next day will bring. Being a freshman, I can say that Iowa State is a wonderful school to transition from living at home, to being on your own. The community is caring and respectful of all diversity. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.

I think that Iowa State is one of the best universities in the country. Of course it has partys and drinking and drugs, but that is conceivable of all universities. Its facilities, academic rigorousness, food options, and campus aesthetic are amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I would say Iowa State is a great place to learn, grow, and mature as a person. With its greatest strength coming from the college of engineering, anyone pursuing a degree in a science related field can be guaranteed an awesome educational experience. I have attended Iowa State for the last 3 years and have loved all the different environments and learning opportunites it has to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State, overall, is a great Midwestern university for agriculture, engineering, and liberal arts. Ames is a wonderful college town and allows you to have the big city college experience but still get a small town vibe. I would, however, take serious consideration into coming here if you're not too keen on feeling like a number at times, because with 38,000 students you will have times where you feel that way; my largest class last semester was 300 students. But, my smallest was 30. Great professors, a beautiful campus, and a variety of things to do (both with and without alcohol) make ISU a great place to call home!

Iowa state is an awesome university where you can really make college be whatever you want it to be. There are seriously activities for everyone and since we have plenty of D1 sports teams there are always sporting events to go to. There are a bunch of different majors and classes for everyone to take. Iowa state is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa state is a university with plenty of opportunity, educational or other. There is always something for everybody, and if by chance you think of a club idea that has not already been made, it's a very simple process to bring it to life. There is always intelligent conversation, and people are happy to talk. There is a stellar engineering program, and the university is a very safe place to learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first semester as a college student, and I am definite that Iowa State was the perfect pick for me. ISU has endless opportunities for anybody and everybody. I am more of an introvert, so the thought of college and being on my own with all new faces was very nerve-racking for me. However, Iowa State is very welcoming to all students, new and old; they help you to feel at home away from home. The environment and people in it are absolutely amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa State University is a beautiful school but I am just not sure it is the school for me anymore. The professors seem nice and the school accommodates well, transportation wise, I just do not feel like I fit in, my grades are slipping, I am not happy, and I don't want to be here anymore.
