I enjoyed how the town was built around the college... Great atmosphere! Fun bars/places to eat & many Iowa paraphernalia shops. Great views of the old capital.

excellent school all the way around. this makes iowa city the town it is. good to be a hawkeye.
you can tell when a student is from the university. very intelligent and comes out with common sense. ok, maybe i am a little biased, but it's the truth :)

My wife currently attends school here, it is a great school, great city, and seems easy to get around, good location, and lots to do in the area.

Beautiful Georgian and early Victorian architecture, done in granite and consistent throughout. The buildings of this university are lovely, but I found the people in the city and university were kind and friendly, too. The combination of lovely old stone, and a welcoming social situation, is what gives this university a special attractiveness. Be sure to visit the Museum of Natural History--and the the University Special Collections and Archives. Iowa City was once the capital of the state, and the history of the state is made instantly visible in the university and in the specialized institutions I have just named.
