    Definitely go and visit the campus in the spring or fall time because it's absolutely beautiful! Be prepared for an amazing 4 or 5 years of your life. The only issue I have with Iowa State is registering for classes and having the class times I want fill up so you could easily be stuck with 8ams.

    Bring a coat. It snowed most of the year. Also use RateMyProfessor as much as you can, some teachers aren't worth suffering through. If you have a meal plan, get the Unlimited Plan and use it as much as possible. Your wallet will thank you.

    Spend time getting to know the campus and town, decide if the dorm life is for you. I wish I had started in an apartment and skipped the dorms. If you are more mature, the dorms are probably not for you. I worked for a year before starting college and the people in the dorm are still experiencing their first time away from home syndrome and the behavior that goes along with it.
