When I was in iowa state, I wasn't happy at all. That university was lack of diversity.. Some people have bias simply because of your race. Now I left, I didn't even want to go back anymore. The town is super boring, winter is freezing.

Its a good school and good education. It really depends on you and what you want from your college years is what you get. The dinning structure is terrible. Professors are mixed. Classes are challenging. There are many of great people and opportunities to take advantage of and get involved in

The Iowa State University campus is absolutely beautiful. They have been doing renovations, maintaining very nice facilities.

The good: ISU has very strong engineering/science programs. Beautiful campus. Lots to like. The bad: ISU professors grade hard. Average GPA at the end of freshman year is about 2.8. A number of 'weed out' classes - some students take classes at Community College or online to avoid. Eng./computer science typically takes 4.5-5 years to graduate.

I'm really enjoying my time at Iowa State. Because of the clubs and organization and being a big state school, I've gotten to meet a whole bunch of people already, and I hope to meet more.

Beautiful campus on the west side, with fantastic, modern, well maintained facilities. East campus is older, but still maintained enough. Don't live at Towers. They have asbestos in the ceiling. Otherwise, very chill and friendly atmosphere, with a robust and thorough bus system which goes into the city, good for us vehicle-less students

Iowa State has one of the nation's most beautiful campuses. The education you receive is hard to beat. Plenty of things to keep you occupied in your free time. The many fitness areas are simply incredible.

Iowa State University has the most beautiful campus. There isn't much of a nightlife but it is perfect for a person who enjoys the peace and quiet and the beautiful outdoors.

Iowa State campus is beautiful, there is a wide variety of classes within my area of interest (biological sciences). I felt safe living in Ames. There's only a couple bars/clubs on Ames which after a while it gets boring. There's not much to do in Ames either, pretty boring life in particular if you enjoy outdoors.

I am from Minnesota so I was very nervous about going to school in another state but ISU has become a second home to me. I feel SUPER safe at all times, the people are so nice, the food is amazing, the opportunities and clubs are endless, and for as many people that go to school here it still has a small town vibe. I absolutely love it!

Being from Minnesota, I was nervous to go to Iowa State, but I had only heard good things so I decided to give it a shot. Best decision of my life. Greek life is amazing, campus is beautiful, and there are genuine people all around. Could not picture myself anywhere else.

Iowa state is an excellent place to do your undergrad and personally I found it really nice not to be in the middle of a hectic city environment while doing it.

I have one week left of my freshman year here and it feels like I just moved in! Coming from the Twin Cities I thought it would be really boring, but honestly I'd never thought that I would say "I don't want to leave Ames". Amazing professors, beautiful campus, stellar Greek life (61 frats and sororities!), and the best year of my life.

Iowa State is an amazing university. The campus is beautiful, Greek life is one of the best in the country, there are thousands of campus clubs and organizations to join. Being in central Iowa, it really makes a bigger university seem like a small family. Always a familiar face on the walks to class!
