Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Don't get a huge meal plan or too many Dining Dollars. If you don't use them up, you lose them.
  • Time management skills are very important! Don't get too far behind in your homework.
  • Tuition rises every year, so be expecting an annual increase.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Group campus visits are for groups of 10 or more students who are in sixth grade or older. Groups are given several options, from campus tours to college tours and other opportunities for exploration.
Campus Tours
A daily visit to campus includes an enrollment presentation, campus tour, and a residence hall tour. During this time, students can also arrange to meet with an academic adviser, and special interest activities are also made available. Experience Iowa State is a campus tour that involves an enrollment presentation, a campus tour, and a residence hall tour. It is like a daily campus visit, but you are given the opportunity to sit in on a class and talk to a panel of ISU students.
