Everyone you meet is your friend. Seriously the only thing I would change are the winter walk to class, although I never have to walk that far. Iowa State is DEFINITELY NOT a small school, but we aren't huge either. We are slightly above just right! When I go home and talk to my neighbors, parents colleagues, other professional, I always hear amazing stories of when they or their friends attended. Not once have I heard a bad story about Iowa State University. To prove my point...the most recent controversy was over setting a limit for students to attend VEISHEA! First big flashing sign, Iowa State Students have so much fun during our annual tradition that no student wanted another to be left out. Another recent change was the adoption of a team of faculty members and two students to assist President Geoffrey in making our Campus more sustainable. This came after students voiced their concern for our planet. Just goes to show that Iowa State really is an adventure that the STUDENTS decide!
Academics are hard at Iowa State, but they are worth when you leave and have discovered just as much about you as you have about your major and have Iowa State on your resume! Students are always encouraged to participate in class, and especially in my department, Microbiology Pre-Med, students are encouraged to learn through hands on techniques. Teacher/ student relations can differ from class to class and major to major, but eating dinner with your professor is not unheard of. I just went out to a professors house this past weekend for a club event.
