    Going into college is a pretty scary thing. Everyone will tell you they were nervous on the first day, and if they didn't I promise they were lying. The University of Iowa made everything so easy. They staff is so helpful and extremely nice. The campus is absolutely beautiful. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made and I'm so happy to attend this university.

    University of Iowa has a great atmosphere for both learning and living. The professors care about your education, especially if you are willing to hero to know them and come to their office hours. Education at Iowa is less about competition between students and more about helpin one another succeed.
