The faculty at the University of Iowa is very qualified and interacts well with their students to provide them with a great educational experience. In a school the size of Iowa, both discussion sections and lectures are the predominant forms of learning. With discussion sections being smaller, the more intimate setting makes for lively conversation and more individual attention. Lectures, on the other hand, are very large, with sometimes over 500 students in attendance. However, I have found it comforting to know that despite the class size, the professors are readily available via office hours, email, or directly after...

    The University of Iowa is probably the most modest and inviting college I have ever heard of. They make sure safety is a priority along with education. They have events everyday of the week so when you aren't studying or doing homework, you have places to be, people to meet, and things to do!

    From tailgating, downtown Iowa City, and a beautiful campus... The University of Iowa is the PERFECT college town. The professors care about you, even in a class of 300. There's so many opportunities, you WILL find the place you fit in.

    I have never heard someone who attends this school say, I hate it here, which goes to show how amazing of a school it is. Everyone who I have come across during my time here so far has so much hawkeye pride, including myself of course, and enjoys every minute of everything there is to offer. Iowa City can never disapoint and I am so glad to call it my second home.

    Iowa offers something for everyone. We have hundreds of clubs, sports, and organizations so you're bound to find one that fits you! Not only do we strive in our academics, but we also have a very spirited student body that livens up every athletic event, and our town never gets boring with hundreds of dining, shopping, retail, night life, and recreation options.

    The English department at this school is a very well-developed program. The countless classes offered provide students with fantastic opportunities to pursue the things they love regarding English. Professors are all concerned for the well-being and success of each student and are all willing to work with students in order to help them reach their full potential.
