  • I knew for a while that this was the university that was right for me. Now that I am here, it's even more evident. Diverse and challenging courses, capable professors, many help and rec centers, food options, a beautiful campus, friendly and safe students and so much more.
  • My son is a Cyclone!!! Great University.
  • I absolutely loved attending Iowa State! I graduated in 2013 and have enjoyed being a fresh alumn thus far. It became my home for a time, my educational institution, and my pride. If you're a high schooler considering coming to ISU, I strongly recommend a college visit and then this school for continuing your education! Enjoy your adventure at Iowa State!
  • I just visited my friend proffesor here for two days. The atmosphere felt like it is a place where you cant do anything else but sit and learn. I believe it is one of good universities
  • I thought Iowa State University was a very good place to go to college. I graduated in 1995 with a BA in English Literature. Iowa State has a beautiful campus.
