Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

Iowa State University is a great college with a wide range of diverse majors and minors. The faculty is knowledgeable and friendly and will take the time to help students one-on-one. The campus is beautiful and has several dorms, gyms, dining centers. I loved attending Iowa State and don't regret any part of my education there.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2021

Really wonderful and nice campus in a diverse town that has the small town charm, but many large town amenities. Employees, staff, and professors are great and supportive utilizing a state of the art facility to help teach the art and science of Veterinary Medicine in the Doctorate program. Not a day goes by that I don't feel I didn't make the right choice to be a part of this DVM program.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The program did a great job of giving me a strong background in the classes I needed to feel prepared for entry into professional school. In addition to being prepared for Med/Vet/Dentistry School, it also prepared classmates for jobs in industry or teaching at the university level. The coursework transitioned students well from undergraduate studies to masters level courses and we were allowed to give insight to the professors on the sorts of material we wanted to learn about to be successful later on in our academic careers. We were given hands on dissection opportunities that allowed us to see up close anatomy and understand the physiology of the body as well. The professors were available to help us make the transition to our studies as well. The small class size in the program made it possible to really network with other people in the field and form study groups with like minded individuals. The research project that we conducted in the second semester of the program really allowed us an opportunity to put what we had learned in the program to work in making a project that would help set us apart later on in our academic or professional careers. Talking about my research project with others really gave me a great in when networking later on.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 1974

When I received my Masters degree in Architecture the program was still in the Department of Engineering and the studios were in the attic of the Engineering Annex behind Marston Hall. I feel that the program gave me a sound basis for my career. The instructors had a wide range of experience and challenged us to do our best.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2019

It is a great overall program. Some classes do need to be reassessed as to how they are being taught. Also, they are going through a tough time right now because the surgery program is being redone and that are using the current classes as guinea pigs to figure out how to best teach us without terminal surgeries. I think it is a great thought that they have, because we will get more spay and neuter time but all the quirks are not yet figured out and it can be frustrating for those who are going through the program right now.
