Iowa State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
Loved the campus & all the different activities available. Engineering program is very good. Would like some of the classes to be more hands on & discovery based.
ISU is a great school with so many options to choose from when it comes to degree programs. It can definitely get overwhelming, but if you put yourself out there and ask for help from people, you will receive it. However, if you are looking for a lot of personalized attention from your professors, then you may wish to look into going to a smaller school.
I loved Iowa State. The campus is absolutely beautiful, the administration cares about the student experience, and you just can't beat the people of Iowa. If you want a bargain degree, spend two years at a community college and transfer in. If you want to learn more, you can take four years (or more!) all at ISU. Go Cyclones!
Great state college, gives the full college experience with a great education as well.
I love Iowa State's community-like feel. The people are warm and inviting and the campus is beautiful and state of the art.
Iowa state was a great place to prepare me for my career. I made lots friends and had leadership opportunities with the many groups and organizations on campus.
College is not only a place for learning, but a place to grow up. To learn who you are, what you believe, and how to live on your own. Going to school and being extremely broke taught me to find a way to make it. I look back and I have no idea how I did it, but it gave me the push I needed to know what kind of lifestyle I wanted. I studied hard, made life long friends, and before I graduated I had a great paying job in another city and had bought a house.
Great school and terrific department. Faculty well-versed in every aspect of the science. Beautiful campus.
Excellent education, decent location (one of the better college towns and 30 min from Des Moines), and reasonably priced compared to other engineering schools
Its really hard to beat Iowa State University for the price paid. Its definitely not up to the same quality as top engineering programs like Stanford or MIT, but if you do well in the school the name won't hinder what you can do after you graduate. I was looking to pursue my PhD after graduating and I had offers from University of Michigan, Northwestern, Georgia Tech, and others. I will really look fondly on my time at Iowa State and would recommend it to anyone who is looking into a STEM degree.
