The university of Iowa is an experience you will never forget and very similar to the crazy party schools generally portrayed in movies and TV. Iowa football games are amazing, the whole whole town pretty much turns into a giant tailgate party.
I love the campus, it looks great and is filled with great people surrounding it. The most I liked about the campus is the recreation workout center, it is a beautiful place to be, and looks just as a good as any workout place in the nation!
