College Life Rating

There are many clubs and organizations, but most undergraduates tend to go Greek. However even if your not in a Sorority or Fraternity there are still plenty of parties and alcohol. Partying starts on Thursday night and it is not uncommon to show up to class still hung over on Monday morning. Downtown Iowa City is right across from campus and it is always packed on Friday nights. The campus turns into party city on the weekend, but if that isn't your thing the university does a good job providing fun/free nonalcoholic events and movies on the weekends.

While talking to to all of the graduating seniors, most of them told me that the best thing aobut going to the University of Iowa is that there is so many different organizations that are offered to students at Iowa
