What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa truly has something for everyone. I do not know what it is but everyone here is so nice and welcoming. For a big ten school, it has a community feel with a great, accessible downtown. The campus is not spread out throughout the entire city which I love because it is easy to get to class. There is honestly nothing that this school lacks...which is why it's a top school in the nation!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I visited the University of Iowa, I was instantly drawn to the size of the campus. Personally, I did not want to go to a university with a huge campus. Having said that, even thought Iowa is considered "large", I felt that the campus size was more medium in person. It fit perfectly to my needs. Not too big and not too small. The campus also advertises and promotes many non-profit charity events for organizations. Many students get involved and promote a healthy lifestyle. Overall, I find Iowa a place like home!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall when I did my campus visit I really fell in love with the campus. At first I wasnt sure if I wanted to go to Iowa but I genuinely love the campus so much, it made me realize how bad I really did want to go there. Also the people who helped us throughout the campus visit showed me how nice everyone was and the information they gave us helped a lot with my decision as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am extremely proud to be a part of the University of Iowa community. Between the helpful staff and friendly students, this college makes being away from home feel welcoming and safe. The classes can sometimes be a bit large but give options to meet in smaller groups during the week to ensure that students understand the course and make the most out of their education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had many mixed feelings about the school, and have found that overall, the university is okay. If I could go back and choose a different college if, given the chance, I would choose a smaller school. I'm from Colorado, and I learned that the university has students that have gone to high school together. I've found it hard to make friends, as everyone is still part of the same groups they had in high school. However, it's great for the students that want to be with their friends in college. The campus housing is decent, although Catlett is definitely the best dorm. I currently live in Rienow, and it's decent if one is looking for a smaller-sized dorm. It's also close to a rec house, Kinnick stadium, and Hillcrest dining. One of the biggest downsides, though, is living next to the hospital, because the sirens from the ambulances and the sound of the helicopters is loud, and they go on all through the night. The class sizes are great, and there's good variety of types of classes and class sizes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! Perfect school for me in terms of academia, off campus life, and overall relations. I am very happy with the professors as well as office hours in general. They’re very helpful and I am able to learn and retain a lot from them. On-campus housing is great- I meet new people who share similar interests and the rooms are very spacious so everything fits perfectly. I love the proximity of the town to campus because I am able to go into town easily and have a lot of fun things to do. Football games are a must! I love the University of Iowa!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University is my home away from home. As with anything, there was an adjustment period. College is a big transition, but the university did an excellent job incorporating all the new students into the Hawkeye family. Many activities were offered the first week to keep our minds off of homesickness. The food is good, although can be repetitive. I was so pleased with my housing on campus, a truly great experience. I love being a hawk, and would recommend to anyone who wants to feel a part of something bigger than themselves!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa is truly a magnificent campus with countless opportunities to choose from. From Greek Life to Dance Marathon to volunteering at the Children’s Hospital! Every day is an eventful day at Iowa! The number of resources for financial aid, tutoring, mental health, and sexual abuse services, and so many more make campus life feel safe and secure. I am a first-year student and the professors that I had in my first semester were so kind and helpful, they were encouraging and were always available during office hours. One is also able to make several friends so easily, you can find your friend group and it makes living on your own a lot better! The University of Iowa could not have been in a better location than Iowa City, the campus is so close to downtown that you can take a walk for a quick coffee break in between classes, it is honestly very convenient. There is also a variety of study spaces available, I usually study in my dorm but the University’s Library is my favorite place so far! There is also the Iowa Memorial Union, the extravagant Art Buildings, and other places I have yet to explore! I can not express enough how beautiful the campus is, especially during autumn when the thousands of leaves on trees are changing color, it is a sight one must see in person! My favorite part of being a college student is the nightlife because there is always something going in the residence halls and around campus. It is a great way to de-stress from studying and it is always acceptable to take a quick break from homework! I could go on and on about how much I cherish my time at Iowa but once you become a student yourself, you will know what I am talking about! My overall opinion of UI is beyond my scale, it is a home away from home and I wouldn’t want to go to any other school in the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa is a place I would be honored to call home. It was a beautiful campus and had a way of making a big city feel like an extremely safe area. While visiting all my questions were answered and I never felt rushed or out of place. This is a place that I can see myself living in for four years plus it is a fairly large city but it has an extremely cozy feel.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an extremely welcoming environment. Students don't fight or target each other. It's a really close community. When tragedies occur that affect large groups in the community or our university as a whole, everyone supports one another. There's a very large amount of activities to do on campus whether it's sponsored by the university or through business in the downtown area. Football is huge to Iowa so weekends when we have games, the school spirit is through the roof. It really is a place that makes you feel at home. I was worried about the cost of attending but I received so many scholarships from the university to help pay my out of state tuition that the cost wasn't so intimidating. Academics are excellent. My teaching program is teaching me things I don't think I could ever find in another university's teacher education program.
