Campus Visits

All college campuses look alike, or do they? You might begin to think differently after stepping foot on Iowa State's campus.

Nestled on more than 1,900 acres you'll find one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country. And we're not just saying that!

College campus or national park?

Iowa State's central campus was one of only three colleges to receive the American Society of Landscape Architects medallion award given to outstanding landscape sites. The book, The Campus As a Work of Art, proclaimed Iowa State to have one of the 25 most beautiful campuses in the country.

You'll discover more than just nature's beauty on a walk through campus. Iowa State has the largest public art collection in the nation with an estimated 2,000 works of art on campus.

The Campanile. Morrill Hall. Lake LaVerne. Stephens Auditorium. Reiman Gardens. The Memorial Union. Those are just a few of our campus treasures. See what else you can discover.

The Soults Family Visitor Center, located in the Memorial Union, provides a wonderful front door to the more than 24,000 students and family members who visit campus each year. This 2,500 square foot facility includes a multimedia theater that seats up to 90 guests, large flat screen monitors, computers for guest use, and a sophisticated lighting and sound system.

We recommend planning your visit at least 2 weeks in advance so that we can arrange the appointments you have requested and send you confirmation materials, travel instructions, and parking information.
