University of Iowa Graduate Reviews

The University of Iowa is a great all around school! The team spirit at football games is like no other as well as the opportunities for community involvement. Some of the buildings could use updating and could be closer together. Parking is also very limited and could improve.

I would like to see professors become more student centered verses them having their own agenda. They are instructors and need to learn how to teach what they are experts in. Other items I would change would be the parking at Iowa. Its cheaper to park in Chicago than it is to park in Iowa City. The city has a napoleon complex and pretends to be this "culturally unbiased" institution in which you see the dark sides of a ultra conservative state lay root in the very Pentacrest that this institution prides itself. Other than that...good party school, go hawks.
The academic environment is top tier; however the overall diversity of the school is very lack luster, especially in graduate school programs. Housing is very expensive if you live close to the university but even living outside of the downtown area, you wouldn't be able to live alone on s graduate student salary.
Food and atmosphere is great in this area with lots of things to do on any given day.
