Overall

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.

Academics

Freshman and Introduction classes are huge, most of my classes have 200+ students in them. This makes it really easy to skip classes so if your not motivated to wake up and come to class or have a tendency to zone out and not pay attention in class you might want to consider a smaller university or attending a community college for your gen eds.

College Life

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.

Overall

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!

Academics

Since i am a current high school senior I dont know much about the classes at the University of Iowa. My admissions consouler informed me that the lectures are about 100-200 in class sizes and the discussion groups contain only about 20 people

College Life

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

Overall

First off, the university is set in a beautiful area. Iowa city is one of the most beautiful cities in the great state of Iowa. One of the things that I like most about the school is the pride that the students and the entire state of Iowa has for its athletics. It's like nothing I've ever experienced before. Now, I'm from Chicago, one of the most celebrated sports cities in the entire nation and I've have yet to experience the intensity that oozes from every inch of kinnick stadium on a Saturday afternoon. One tip I would give students would be to come into the school with a completely open mind and embrace every experience that comes your way.

Academics

I'm a prospective student, but I just recently visited the campus and met with an advisor for my prospective major,athletic training, and they were very well put together and informative. The core classes that they provide are those of the most high quality classes offered anywhere.

College Life

The student slash campus life is one of the factors that really sold me on this university. I have not had one negative interaction with one person the total of 7 days that I've visited all together. I've felt completely safe and secure every minute that I've been on this campus. There are a surplus of clubs and organizations that the school provides for literally every interest that someone would have. I play ultimate frisbee at my high school and would hate to not play anymore. I don't have that problem because Iowa has a club ultimate frisbee team. And every other club you could think of. The athletics at this school is nothing short of amazing. The Saturday mornings before the games are magical.
