“The University of Iowa is a great place to attend graduate school.  The scientific community is friendly and collaborative, and the Neuroscience program works to create a supportive community among its students.  It's relatively easy to live within a short commute to the University.  Iowa City is also a lot of fun.  I live within walking distance of downtown and everything it has to offer, so I frequent the Farmer's Market, the public library, and favorite restaurants.  ”
