“Out of all the places I have lived in my life, Iowa has the nicest and friendliest people I have met.  It is really hard to have a bad day in Iowa City.  Among my favorite things in Iowa City are the beautiful campus (yes, even in the winter), the great variety of food, and of course the opportunities that are available at the University of Iowa.  Being a New York native, it is refreshing to live in Iowa City since it is so peaceful and calm (game days aside of course).”
