Coeducational from the beginning, Iowa State University was established in 1858. It was the first land-grant university and is now affiliated with the Iowa space grant consortium, too.

ISU is a member of the Association of American Universities, given the distinction of “very high research activity, and is a certified “Innovation and Economic Prosperity University.”
Iowa State is a large university with the small college feel. It has many students but everywhere I go, I see people I know, and that are in my classes. Everyone is very nice and the professors know what they are teaching.

Iowa State has a beautiful campus during all seasons. The professors are all super helpful and encouraging. There is always something to do on campus.
