Hello everybody, I am a freshman at Iowa state and i couldn't be more happy. Overall first impressions in my first week is that everything here is amazing and i can see why 36000+ other students attend here. Everybody here is so kind and polite whether it is a student, professor, or local resident, i have never been around a place with this many nice people. The amount of things you can get involved in here at ISU is unbelievable. They have over 800 clubs if if you can't find one for you then you can start your own! You will always feel like you fit right in here and there is plenty of opportunity to explore your interests further, or even explore new ones. The professors here are fantastic and the make sure you get every pennies worth of your education that you paid for. ISU sets you up so its makes it harder to fail, rather than pass. There is so much help offered here whether it is by teaching assistant, professors, tutors, or even your friendly classmates.
