I love how Iowa is a Big Ten school but it still feels like a close community. I can walk to all of my classes in under 15 minutes and almost always see a friendly face along the way. You can really feel Iowa's sense of community on game days. The west side is filled with students and alumni dressed in black and gold proudly supporting their school. I have learned so much here about myself, others, and my future career that I will carry with me forever.

I absolutely enjoyed my time at the University of Iowa. There was always something to do whether it was related to school or something to get involved in the community. The environment is very diverse, which I loved. The only thing that I would like to see change in Iowa City is the crime rate, which needs to go down drastically to make the town and school safer, especially for female students.

The University of Iowa is a party school - we all know that. There's partying every day of the week if you want it. Pretty much anything you want to get is there. But I don't think that defines the school. The school also has a great academic presence and offers lots of support for whatever you need. The dorms are generally good and the food is certainly more than palatable. Overall, I would very much recommend the Iowa experience.
