  • To all high school seniors looking at colleges, tour Iowa State! Iowa State was pretty low on my college list but I decided to tour it anyway. Coming from Wisconsin, my first thoughts were it was a college in the middle of no where with an easy acceptance rate...sketchy. But the moment I stepped foot on campus for my college visit I knew it was the place for me. It's a division one school but the beautiful campus and friendly staff made it feel small. Iowa State was the only college I applied to and I am more than happy with that decision. The professors and advisors truly care for every student and want you to succeed. For the university being in a such a small town, there is so much to do at ISU. From intramural sports, clubs, going to sporting events, to even joining greek like, exploring Ames, there is so much to do. Go cyclones.
  • Iowa state is a great university for college students to begin their real life.
  • Great staff, in the math department at least. I wanted to do research and was doing fairly well in my classes, so I sent an email to 30 professors and got 10 offers. Be wary of not being able to understand the foreign teachers though.
  • Great campus with nice bus facilities.
  • Very difficult to pass 300 level classes when you have depression and anxiety, even with help from disability services.
