The University of Iowa is definitely the perfect school for me. My professors and TAs strive to make my classes interesting and challenging so that I want to learn the material. Beyond academics, Iowa has so many diverse extracurricular opportunities available that it is almost impossible not to find your perfect place here right away.
The University of Iowa is a fantastic place to go to gain a higher education. Many of my family members have attended and absolutely loved it. I am very excited to be attending Iowa this fall.
