Student satisfaction ranges from sheer hatred to adoration, and a majority of the students at ISU seems to fall in the middle of that range. While a few students do profess hatred of their teachers and subject material, most students tend to be content with the quality of education these teachers are providing. Cultural differences seem to be the biggest problem teachers and students have with each other, but these kinds of differences better prepare students for life in the real world. They may, eventually, be glad they were forced to strain and decipher foreign interpretations of English—it could help them in the workforce someday.
Of course, different people will have differing views on what makes or breaks a teacher, and this is no different at ISU. Some students are warned by friends that certain teachers are Satan incarnate, while others adore them. Iowa State has enough educators to offer variety in education. In most cases, if you get stuck with a teacher you hate, chances are, you can drop the class and take it later with a different instructor. These options are not always available at smaller schools.
