  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    This university has a really low ACT median, which at first made me think it might be too easy for me. BUT when I visited, I got the vibe that this is a very academically rigorous school. They have lots of well-regarded programs which range from health science to creative writing. Don't think of U-Iowa as a safety school! This is probably one of the best schools in the country. My tour guide suggested to bring a mini fridge and a microwave to your dorm.

  • I am a current student here

    I am a current college student, but I do advise you take advantage of your resources. This school is full of so many resources that you would be surprised with what is offered. I always learn something new every week because I tend to find out that we have different resources to help with many situations. Whether you need tutoring help or counseling services, you can easily find a place to help you. Most students always forget that a lot of the resources on campus are free for us too since we pay to go to school here. Not only that, but studying is another thing you should keep in mind. With all the different organizations, events, and social gatherings going on, you can easily distract yourself. However, you do not want to get too involved and loose track of your studies. Balance both school work and the activities/organizations you will attempt to be a part of.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Attend campus, talk to current students, and learn to study smart! From what I've heard from my future peers, some of the more intensive classes can be less stressful if you take extra time to study before the lectures.
