Wonderful older well maintained campus mixed with new architecture growing up all around. The tailgating during Football season is a great experience.

This is the 7th university that I haved toured with my 17 year old daughter in anticipation of her college career.

We took the tour on a Saturday, which did not afford us the opportunity to views classes in session. Outside of that, however, we were able to experience most everything the school has to offer. Ames/ISU consistently gets high rankings for quality of life and value of education. After our visit, I can see why. If 2 or 3 cold months don't scare you away from the Midwest, look into ISU.

Oh, and they do pick up lunch in the Memorial Service Building and the food is great.

The campus is beautiful...especially in the Spring. Events at the Iowa State Center are well organized as a whole and people are VERY helpful. After coming to school 42 years ago...we still live here. There is as much or as little as you want to do and being with younger people...keeps you younger! The architecture ranges from greek columns to the modern Design Center, CY Stephens and Hilton.

The directions to the school were easy to follow. The school campus is very nice. We received a lot of helpful information about the school and the potential major for my son.

From student, to family members to children graduating from ISU; it's the best University to attend in Iowa. The campus is beautiful everyday of the year. Administration, Greek Community, the city overall working together to help make the education experience a great memory for all of us to enjoy.
