Why Iowa

With more than 30,000 students, the University of Iowa delivers the energy and opportunity of a leading university, but remains one of the smallest and most affordable universities among its peer institutions. In addition, Iowa City frequently ranks among the best and most-livable college towns in America. Graduate and professional students comprise about a third of the university's total enrollment.
