Always love visiting Iowa State. Stayed on campus at the Iowa House - a fraternity converted into a bed and breakfast. Lovely and so convenient! Highly recommend... Iowa State has provided a terrific education for our son this past 4 years.

Our daughter enjoyed going to the Cheerleading clinic this past weekend and even had more fun being down on the ball court during half-time on Saturday at the game! Keep up these excellent opportunities for getting our youth involved!
