Home of the Iowa State University Cyclones!! Go Cyclones!!! Ames is a charming town. And ISU is one of the oldest land-grant universities in the country. When the lilacs bloom in the spring, it is truly one of the most beautiful places. Iowa State's main campus has been acclaimed to be one of the 3 most beautiful campuses in the country. The central campus was designed by the same guy who designed Central Park in New York City. It's very beautiful! If you're ever in the area...be sure to take a drive through campus!

Gamedays are Great!

ISU Football Games are a blast, especially when the football team actually scores! ;-) But college football is HUGE in the state of Iowa, so people come just to come! It's pretty cool! And there's a great picture of the Varsity Marching Band spelling out 'Cyclones'.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of international students/faculty in a small Iowa town...
  • Cons:It's a small Iowa town...nothing to do...
  • In a nutshell:HOME OF THE CYCLONES!!
