    Look for housing early! Housing is quite limited in Ames and goes quickly. Also, watch out for the parking police on campus. They are rather ridiculous and LOVE giving tickets - they check each lot around every hour or so.

    It's only my first college acceptance so far, and I'm not even a full fledged senior yet. From I've learned thus far, just do every single thing you can in high school. Volunteer for everything, and don't be stingy on tasks. Be in every club that you can be in, and take every extraneous class you can take whether you're good at the subject or not. Find something your good at extracurricular wise, and stick to it. Mine was JROTC, and my accomplishments in that program have won me a bunch of brownie points. Bottom line... Achieve all that you can, and strive for everything that you want.

    It would be a good idea for the students to research every bit about the university including their programs, accommodation , conveyance etc. Ames, the city where the college is located has extreme weather , so students should be prepared.

    The best way to do well in school is to study what you are interested in. Meet new people. Be yourself.

    First For the students who are not from Iowa or even the Midwest, like myself, mind the weather. It is very extreme, very, very cold in the winder and extremely hot in the summer. Second, you have probably heard this before, but Iowa States faculty and staff are very nice and approachable. Go talk to your professors and advisor. They are always happy to help you or just talk to you and get to know you. Third have fun. This is college. Get involved and you will not feel homesick!
