What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa overall has a welcoming feel. Most people are nice to each other and the class sizes can be small enough to get to know everyone. Dorms are nice and comfortable. Food in the main dining halls could be better, but other food places on campus are really good. The culture around campus is also a big plus, there are plenty of places to go out to eat or hang out with friends within walking distance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Iowa it is an inclusive school that makes an effort to help every student feel like they belong. In addition, they have many opportunities to get involved on campus, there is truly something for everyone. My favorite part however, is the integration with the town of Iowa City, I don't feel like I go to college in isolation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school as a whole is alright, but can be improved upon. Students on and off campus can be incredibly rude sometimes. There is a huge substance abuse problem at the school that is overshadowed. Classes are over filled and should be condensed. The dorm rooms are alright.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa is a place full of diversity, and by that I don't only mean ethnically but also you can find just about anyone and any place that suits your interest. It's very easy to make friends and find a club or organization to join. Furthermore, there's a wide array of restaurants for whatever your tastebuds desire that day. In terms of on-campus there's a lot of study spaces like the libraries, dorms, and when its warm, the lawn in the pentacrest. Academic-wise, there are surplus of classes to choose from that are highly interesting and unique. Like any university Professors and lectures are a hit or miss but for me the majority have been great teachers. Some classes offer out of class discussions or tutors. If the classes don't provide the latter then you can always find a private tutor to help you out through the university website. In terms of housing, its pretty much up to chance. I lived in Burge my first year and got a big room, but the building was was old and musty. In my particular hall everyone was cooped up in their dorm rooms, and we didn't get to talk to anybody other than our RA. However, on my second year I moved to Currier and it was the complete opposite, our neighbors were nice and talkative, and the halls and rooms were more colorful and lively. Our room that year was small but comfortable. My only complain in Currier was that we were having problems with our heater. In terms of the dining halls. I usually go to Burge or Cattlet. The food is fairly decent, it's obviously not as good as a home cook meal or a restaurant. My main complain is that the vegetable often don't taste very fresh, but I think that is more because they sit out since 12 pm til closing time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love everything about University of Iowa-classes, opportunity for involvement, athletics and especially the teachers and advisors. The staff are always willing to help me out with answering questions I have about a class or assisting me with my class schedule. My academic advisor showed me how to obtain dual credit for my Spanish class. My chemistry teacher took extra time with me to explain a topic that I was having difficulty understanding. The reputation that Iowa has is called, “Iowa Nice”. I have to agree. It seems that everyone whom I have met has gone out of their way to help me navigate the first year at Iowa. I’m looking forward to the next 3, before law school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my opinion of the University of Iowa on a scholarly focused level is that it is definitely above average concerning the advanced education offered, and the on-site accessibility to learning materials and professors engagement. This has been a place for expansion and growth for my learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

you get the best of both worlds, well known with lots of opportunities yet a small community feel. Great academics as well as sports, environmental care while still maintaining a diverse selection of students. The community is very supportive of the University and take pride in sharing in the programs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since this will be my first year there, overall I've had a very good experience. Everyone is extremely helpful and happy to have conversations. People usually would rather stay on their phone rather than hold a conversation but everyone is so engaged at Iowa that it's not a priority.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I had started applying to colleges two years ago, the University of Iowa was not the first choice of my favorite universities. However, as the year progressed, and I learned more about the university, especially how it’s the number one writing school in the nation, the institution quickly surpassed other universities. I’m very grateful to have chosen to attend the University of Iowa because it has proven over the past year to be an exceptional institution. Firstly, the sheer number of courses offered to students is extraordinary. There are so many classes available to fulfill GE credits as well as count towards majors. The teachers are accommodating and always willing to help struggling students during their office hours or scheduled appointments. Secondly, the student life is alive. There are currently over five hundred clubs on campus, and the number of organizations grows every year. There is a club for everyone to find people with similar interests; it’s relatively easy to find a group of friends early on in the year. When football season begins, every student is rooting for the games. The university has an active fanbase not only for football but for every sports team. The University of Iowa is a fantastic university, and I would highly recommend anyone applying to college to submit an application to the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere of all of the midwestern nice kids! The food does get kind of old and the dorms aren't amazing, but unless you're super high maintenance it shouldn't be a huge issue. From concerts to bars to the football games, there's always something to do at Iowa!
