    I have enjoyed my time here at Iowa State. There are lots of clubs (over 300) and events here to get involved in. The biggest event on campus is probably VEISHEA which is a week long showcase of all things Iowa State. It is an annual tradition.

    The campus is designed for the students. It's in a nice sized town with a great bus system to take you wherever you want to go. Teachers love to teach here, the opportunities are endless. The dorms are comfortable, the students friendly and the food is off the charts. There's a place for everyone at ISU.
