“Iowa City is a semi - small town centralized around the University and conjoined Hospital. All of the amenities necessary are easily accessible. Iowa City holds an excellent night life and has an emphasis on local everything (coffee, food, etc..). As UIowa is a large university, there are endless activities to be had. The new rec and numerous trails satisfy your exercise and outdoor craving needs. Coming from the larger city of Pittsburgh, I would equate the cultures as both outgoing and open-minded. A more positive aspect of Iowa City over a larger city is the slower feel to the town. Graduate life can be very stressful, so the safety of the town and lack of a dense population make an already busy life easier to manage. ”
