    Iowa State University is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. The atmosphere on campus is amazing and it feels like your home away from home while you are there.

    Iowa State has great academics, amazing staff, and places all over campus to help you feel welcomed. Campus is huge, but with tons of outdoor space to sit down between classes, you'll be glad. Definitely a great school.

    I really enjoy going to school here, there are many opportunities to work and volunteer in areas associated with your major. The professors seem to be interested in the success of their students and I enjoy the community. I am not too thrilled with the dorm life or food services and am moving to an apartment next year.
