For the most part, students enjoy their Iowa State experience. Iowa State is a large school with a beautiful campus and a reasonably diverse population. The first year can be difficult for many students, especially those who are not from the Midwest and are away from their families. It can be hard adjusting to college life, but once friends are made, the experience improves. Lifelong friendships are formed at Iowa State. Ames is a town that supports the college atmosphere, and students can quickly feel at home here. Iowa can have a few too many seasons for students not used to such dramatic weather, but students who can survive the first year find that the rest of their time at ISU gets easier.
Iowa State is a university of science and technology, so students in other fields may want to thoroughly investigate their fields of study before enrolling at Iowa State over another institution. You get out of college what you put into it. No matter where you are, if you are determined to learn, to make friends, and to succeed, your college experience will be fun. Iowa State has a lot to offer to every student-the question is if it is the right choice for you. Iowa State is large enough to be able to have great athletics and a huge social scene, but small enough that students get individualized attention in their classrooms and are easily able to make solid friendships. Students generally seem very satisfied with Iowa State-and why shouldn't they be?
everyone supports the teams, even if theyre loosing, which is good for morale, but sometimes the school seems like they give different priorities to athletes than they do the rest of the student population
theyre average some places are really old because of the age of the school, like the dorms, but other than that theyre great.
Its ok, but if you have a car, there is not way youre going to find a parking spot. This sucks if you are living far off campus and dont have any other way to get there.
It is hard to get scholarships. They just expect my family is helping out and even though I receive no help, ISU still will not give me extra help.
Drugs are bad and people know this. The few who do drugs do them occasionally.
