What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
U of Iowa is an institution that invites young minds to grow and develop with the help of highly educated leaders. Family values are important within the administration and add value to the environment within the grounds of the university. Service is important and enhances the experience here, whether it be through religious institutions, athletics, arts, or any other types of curriculum.
