“I love Iowa City more than I can say. The general ambiance is utterly amicable. Iowa City is crawling with cultural and artistic outputs. Every day there are poetry readings, musical seminars or dance workshops for the general public to take advantage of. Everyone is so friendly and you can't beat the science!! :)”
