    Be sure to sit in on a class when you visit! You will get a better feel for what the student life is like and what the classes are like.

    I went to two other colleges before the University of Iowa and wasn't comfortable at all. I went to visit this school and I had a sense of welcoming that I never felt at the other colleges.

    The school has a reputation of being the #1 party school in the nation, but the University of Iowa is a dry campus and not everyone there is into partying or even drinks. Do notÂ?t fall into the freshman trap, Mayflower. Be prepared for the weather, high temps reaching 101F (108F with the heat index in 2013) and as low as -19F (-55F with the wind chill). Heavy winters and humid summers are the norm for Iowa. So, bring or buy appropriate clothing.

    Take your major coursework, but be sure to take advantage of the wide array of electives offered at the university; they will teach you so much. Get involved! The university is home to hundreds of student-run clubs and organizations, and there really is something for everyone. Don't be afraid to talk to your instructors outside of class. The instructors here are incredibly helpful in resolving problems and making sure you get the most out of their classes (Plus, they love to write recommendation letters for students they know!).

    Party hard but work harder. You are here for your future but also to get the party out of your system before your real life starts.
