        If you are looking for a college to attend Iowa State is your best choice. It has a world-wide reputation for excellence. When you earn a degree from Iowa State University, it is worth a great deal. When I attended from 1973 - 1978, it was not an "easy" school by any means. But life in the real world is not "easy" either. ISU prepared me for the real world. I highly recommend this institution.

        Between the quality education, campus experience, and quality of living I can't express how much I feel ISU has benefitted my professional career. I have two daughters now in college and all the campus visits I've been on don't match up. We live in Lancaster, PA and if distance had not played a major role, both girls would have attended ISU. I personally liked the conservative Greek system and their values they instilled on the entire Fraternity/Sorority system.

        I received a very thorough education in the field of Exercise Science at ISU! As a Fitness Presenter I often travel to other colleges and universities and prepare students in the field to take their Personal Trainer exam. I feel that I received one of the best educations out there. The depth of the program and variety of topics covered prepared me to work with clientele of all different ages and physical situations. In addition to the educational benefits I gained at ISU, I also received a lot of support from my faculty/staff in my professional career search. While ISU may be a large school, the small town feel of the surrounding community made me proud to call it home for 4 years!
