Well, we were there during a cold spell, but, overall, not as polished as some other, maybe more metropolitan B1G universities I have visited. Would probably not be my first choice of schools, if I had to go back!

Whether dining in one of the residence halls or at one of many catering events held on campus, foods at the University of Iowa are innovative, flavorful, and well presented and served. The "dorm" dining centers are open to the public and the place to go before an athletic event. The menu is bountiful and provides the best value in... More

I would like to thank the professors who let me into their lessons and let me be part of the lesson when I visited my penpal three years, I enjoyed doing my voiceover for the Canterbury Tales project.

One of the major reasons I decided to attend Iowa was the campus. It's beautiful, especially on the Pentacrest. For the most part, the campus is its own entity, making it easy to get from class to class. Overall, this university is beautiful, always has something going on, and is a great place to get a college education.

Well, I was born on campus, and my father played football here...so I am a little biased when it comes to reviewinf this campus!! But to know it, is to love it! The students have made it the #1 party school. which frankly disappoints me...because it is so much more than that!

Not a happy trip, but had to make an emergency trip to Iowa City for a detached retina. I was really impressed with the department for vision. Everything went great. Would highly recommend for major eye problems.

I've been to all the Big Ten campuses. This one is special. It's like a big city condensed into a small town. The arts, the restaurants, the shopping are great. I visited a friend in his downtown highrise condo. It is the biggest, best, little city in the Big Ten.

A great University with a small town feel. With a student population of around 33,000 and the University integrated with the city itself. The University has a health sciences campus that is fabulous with Nursing, Dentistry, Public Health, Pharmacy and Medicine.
