What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’ve had a good time so far. Some campus culture can be improved for sure, but I love being here. I love how politically active most of my peers are and that when there are questionable actions made by the university the students aren’t afraid to say something.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After being at the University of Iowa for only a semester, I do not regret my decision one bit. There is always something to do here at the university, whether that being involved in intramurals, clubs, etc. While attending the university, you will find support everywhere here on campus and many resources provided. For only being a public college and compared to many private colleges, you get the most bang for your buck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa is a great place for students, faculty, and the public to explore and be a part of a community that values academics as well as the community surrounding the university. The University of Iowa is very diverse and does a great job of including people of all backgrounds in academics, activities, and so many more things. It is a safe place for students to explore and expand their passions and have the opportunities to get involved in clubs, events, and activities where they can make a difference. I am very proud to be a student at the University of Iowa. My experience in my first has been nothing short of excellent. I have gotten so many opportunities to get involved, to be part of a community that really cares about my opinions and success, and to be the very best hat I can be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Iowa is a mixed blend of things. From first view, it has a beautiful campus, with amazing state of the art facilitates, and many organizations to join. Though diving in slightly deeper, some of the dorm halls are not as modern as others, and some are located quite far from the actual campus. Class sizes and professors are a plus, many classes have small student sizes and professors take their jobs seriously and seem extremely invested in the education of their students. University of Iowa does have a lack of diversity and open-mindedness, and the partying scene is a large part of the culture, and is really the only culture here. Overall, the rating of 3 our of 5 starts accurately sums up my experience here at University of Iowa, not awful, but not great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Iowa is a great school that has challenged me academically. The campus is very walkable and the facilities are pretty decent. I've met a lot of people here and it was nice seeing familiar faces through the semesters despite it being a large campus. Socially, the athletics are a big deal and game days were always something to look forward to. Greek life is available, but the social scene is not consumed by it. Many people get involved on campus through student orgs and that has been a great way to get unique opportunities.

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.
