Came for campus tour with my daughter. Orientation is ran by students, who did an awesome job. Faculty also supplied us with campus lunch in their "Market Place". Daughter has made up her mind on where she would like to attend "Go Hawkeyes"!!! Thank you

We came for a college tour never having been here before. We liked all of our tour guides and were impressed with the campus. Basta was an excellent restaurant choice in the adjoining town.
