Iowa State University Graduate Reviews

8 reviews
Iowa State is the best of both worlds. Strong and challenging academics coupled with passionate and kind individuals. I think ISU is especially good at being a "well-rounded" institution. Interdisciplinary work is encouraged, and the community is very supportive. I've also had some excellent professors!
