Life as a Hawkeye
Life as a Hawkeye is closely tied to living in an amazing college town like Iowa City. Downtown is located directly across the street from campus, giving our students access to more than 100 restaurants, cafes, music venues, theatres, and more. There's no place quite like Iowa City, a friendly, tight-knit community bursting with creative energy and Hawkeye pride.
Iowa students are responsible citizens and future leaders, dedicating their time to have an impact through research, volunteering, study abroad programs, and community outreach.
Dance Marathon, our largest student organization on campus, has raised more than $30 million to support pediatric cancer patients.
A healthy lifestyle is critical for success both inside and outside the classroom.
Hawkeyes have access to countless leisure services at our Campus
Recreation and Wellness Center (CRWC), such as fitness training and massage therapy. Our Student Health, Student Wellness, and University Counseling Services are always available to support your emotional and personal well-being.
