What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
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.
