    I love Iowa State and spending time in the Midwest. Going away to a big college can be daunting but the resources at Iowa State are the best and are helping me grow as a person and excel with my studies. I am in the middle of my Spring term and I know I made the right choice; extra curricular activities, fun dorm, club sports, sorority, and great professors and interesting classes.

    Iowa State from day one won me over, there is something special about this campus that brings everyone together. While at ISU I have had the opportunity to get involved in so many different groups on campus that truly made me feel like I belonged with them.

    Iowa State University has a beautiful campus and a variety of people. It is a large school that actually has pretty small classes. It isn't too expensive and if you need financial help there is plenty of people that can help you.

    Iowa State has a very diverse campus and you can meat people from all over not just the U.S but the whole world. ISU also has a very active campus and everyone likes to get involved.

    The campus is gorgeous, and the atmosphere is one that makes you feel at home while still feeling like its a school. Most major-specific classes are smaller, while the general classes such as psychology, math, english, etc. are large. Its very easy to find food around campus, whether its a dining center, cafe, convienence store, or street vendor.
