Absolutely beautiful. One of the prettiest campuses in the Midwest. Just walking around the campus you get the feeling the students really like to go there.

No issue here! My kid was dropped off and she loves everything about it. She heard complaints about her Dorm, as it turns out it's fine and the location is awesome.

Iowa State Is very beautiful through all the seasons. Huge campus, lots to do especially during football season. I went to this school and loved it. I would recommend visiting and walking around campus. Every building is unique architecturally but also what they offer inside. Some places to see are central campus, Memorial union, Cat Hall, Farmhouse museum, Engineering building,... More

The campus is very Pretty. Reminded me of Windsor Hall at Purdue or Rodger Williams University. The gardens are very nice and it is very walkable.

Enjoyed seeing much of the campus and reading the history. The grounds were well kept and beautiful, we loved the Campanile and the accompanying lawn where we attended a beautiful outdoor wedding! The reception was held in the Scheman building, very very nice!
