  • I cannot say how much that I love Iowa State University. The professors have all been incredible and are extremely smart, compassionate people. There are so many opportunities for students to pursue their dreams both academically and any hobbies that they have. The campus is also extremely beautiful and is rated one of the top 10 in the world.
  • I went here and my perception of the university has soured. I was on a national merit scholarship (free tuition, room and board) and they tried to usher me out in 3 years, rather than 4. I tried to get internships, but I was always told I needed to be in more extracurriculars, despite having a 3.64 GPA. I was able to get an entry level job after graduating, but after I was fired from that job, I haven't been able to find a real college-degree job since. I feel that my Chemical Engineering B.S. degree is worthless. The curriculum hasn't changed since 1910. 6 years after graduating from ISU and I can only get jobs that require a high school diploma. I literally would have been better off becoming a truck driver right out of high school.
  • Beautiful Campus, offers a variety of majors and a multitude of colleges. Very helpful faculty and always friendly people on campus, very welcoming and open environment. Large expansion occurring throughout campus in the engineering and sciences. Definitively recommend visiting in the fall when the leaves are changing or in the spring when all the flowers are in blossom.
  • She's there lol thats why it be amazing u know what im sayin bruv
  • Visited Iowa State to attend Black History event. The speaker was very informative and I learned a lot about e-trade transactions between US and Africa. I am looking forward to attending another this February Black History programs
