Student Life

Every Hawkeye is part of a family that spans the globe. But that doesn’t mean you’ll get lost in the crowd.  

At Iowa, you'll find everything you’d expect from a Big Ten school: an awesome campus, exciting gamedays, and lots of school pride. But from the first time you witness the Hawkeye wave, you’ll see that being a big family doesn’t stop us from caring about every single member.  

With hundreds of communities and clubs, dedicated student support resources, and the perfect college town to call home, there’s a place for everyone at Iowa. We want to help you find yours.
