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

Attended a conference held at and around the university and love the atmosphere. We walked everywhere even though we had a car. Got a lot of walking in which was very scenic, especially along the river.
