    The people here are so friendly and helpful, far nicer than many helpers I've talked to in city colleges. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and there's plenty of things to do around campus. There engineering program also sounds amazing, probably one of the best in the Midwest.

    The campus is so gorgeous and I love the park like area throughout the campus. The people and the professors here are also so passionate, I met with one of the Biology Major advisors and he was so encouraging and helpful. The location is also really nice because it seems so peaceful and rural but is right next to many places.

    Iowa State has a beautiful campus: a large lake, a scenic atmosphere, and beautiful buildings. I could not believe the outstanding facilities I was able to tour nor the close but large feeling of the campus itself. Definitely ready to start my adventure at Iowa State!
