Iowa State University wordmark.svg

Iowa State University of Science and Technology (Iowa State University, Iowa State, or ISU) is a publicland-grantresearch university in Ames, Iowa. It is the largest university in the state of Iowa and the third largest university in the Big 12 athletic conference. Iowa State is classified among "R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity"[5] and is a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU).[6]

Founded in and coeducational from its start, Iowa State became the nation's first designated land-grant institution when the Iowa Legislature accepted the provisions of the Morrill Act on September 11, , making Iowa the first state in the nation to do so.[7][8]

Iowa State's academic offerings are administered through eight colleges, including the graduate college, that offer over bachelor's degree programs, master's degree programs, and 83 doctoral degree programs, plus a professional degree program in Veterinary Medicine.[9]

Iowa State University's athletic teams, the Cyclones, compete in Division I of the NCAA and are a founding member of the Big The Cyclones field 16 varsity teams and have won numerous NCAA national championships.[citation needed]



In , the Iowa General Assembly enacted legislation to establish the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm. This institution (now Iowa State University) was officially established on March 22, , by the General Assembly. Story County was chosen as the location on June 21, , beating proposals from Johnson, Kossuth, Marshall and Polk counties. The original farm of acres (&#;km2) was purchased for a cost of $5,[10]

Iowa was the first state in the nation to accept the provisions of the Morrill Act of [10][11] Iowa subsequently designated Iowa State as the land-grant college on March 29, [8][11] From the start, Iowa Agricultural College focused on the ideals that higher education should be accessible to all and that the university should teach liberal and practical subjects. These ideals are integral to the land-grant university.[10][12]

The institution was coeducational from the first preparatory class admitted in The formal admitting of students began the following year, and the first graduating class of consisted of 24 men and two women.[10]

The Farm House, the first building on the Iowa State campus, was completed in before the campus was occupied by students or classrooms. It became the home of the superintendent of the Model Farm and in later years, the deans of Agriculture, including Seaman Knapp and "Tama Jim" Wilson. Iowa State's first president, Adonijah Welch, briefly stayed at the Farm House and penned his inaugural speech in a second floor bedroom.[10]

The college's first farm tenants primed the land for agricultural experimentation. The Iowa Experiment Station was one of the university's prominent features. Practical courses of instruction were taught, including one designed to give a general training for the career of a farmer. Courses in mechanical, civil, electrical, and mining engineering were also part of the curriculum.

In , President Welch and I. P. Roberts, professor of agriculture,[13] held three-day farmers' institutes at Cedar Falls, Council Bluffs, Washington, and Muscatine. These became the earliest institutes held off-campus by a land grant institution and were the forerunners of 20th century extension.

In , the first courses were given in domestic economy (home economics, family and consumer sciences) and were taught by Mary B. Welch, the president's wife. Iowa State became the first land grant university in the nation to offer training in domestic economy for college credit.[10]

In , the School of Veterinary Science was organized, the first state veterinary college in the United States (although veterinary courses had been taught since the beginning of the college). This was originally a two-year course leading to a diploma. The veterinary course of study contained classes in zoology, botany, anatomy of domestic animals, veterinary obstetrics, and sanitary science.[14]

William M. Beardshear was appointed President of Iowa State in During his tenure, Iowa Agricultural College truly came of age. Beardshear developed new agricultural programs and was instrumental in hiring premier faculty members such as Anson Marston, Louis B. Spinney, J.B. Weems, Perry G. Holden, and Maria Roberts. He also expanded the university administration, and added Morrill Hall (), the Campanile (), Old Botany (now Carrie Chapman Catt Hall) (), and Margaret Hall () to the campus, all of which stand today. In his honor, Iowa State named its central administrative building (Central Building) after Beardshear in [15] In , reflecting the school's growth during his tenure, it was renamed Iowa State College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts, or Iowa State for short.

Today, Beardshear Hall holds the offices of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Registrar, Provost, and student financial aid. Catt Hall is named after alumna and famed suffragetteCarrie Chapman Catt, and is the home of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Beardshear Hall celebrating Sesquicentennial in

In Iowa State had its first Homecoming celebration. The idea was first proposed by Professor Samuel Beyer, the college's “patron saint of athletics,” who suggested that Iowa State inaugurate a celebration for alumni during the annual football game against rival University of Iowa. Iowa State's new president, Raymond A. Pearson, liked the idea and issued a special invitation to alumni two weeks prior to the event: “We need you, we must have you. Come and see what a school you have made in Iowa State College. Find a way.” In October Iowa State marked its th Homecoming with a "CYtennial" Celebration.[16]

Iowa State celebrated its first VEISHEA on May 11–13, Wallace McKee (class of ) served as the first chairman of the Central Committee and Frank D. Paine (professor of electrical engineering) chose the name, based on the first letters of Iowa State's colleges: Veterinary Medicine, Engineering, Industrial Science, Home Economics, and Agriculture. VEISHEA grew to become the largest student-run festival in the nation.[15]

The Statistical Laboratory was established in , with George W. Snedecor, professor of mathematics, as the first director. It was and is the first research and consulting institute of its kind in the country.[17]

While attempting to develop a faster method of computation, mathematics and physics professor John Vincent Atanasoff conceptualized the basic tenets of what would become the world's first electronic digital computer, the Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC), during a drive to Illinois in These included the use of a binary system of arithmetic, the separation of computer and memory functions, and regenerative drum memory, among others. The prototype was constructed with graduate student Clifford Berry in the basement of the Physics Building.[18]

During World War II, Iowa State was one of colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission.[19]

Maturity as a university[edit]

On July 4, , the college was officially renamed Iowa State University of Science and Technology. However, the short-form name "Iowa State University" is used even in official documents such as diplomas.

Official names given to the university's divisions were the College of Agriculture, College of Engineering, College of Home Economics, College of Sciences and Humanities, and College of Veterinary Medicine.[20]

Iowa State's eight colleges today offer more than undergraduate majors and fields of study leading to graduate and professional degrees. The academic program at ISU includes a liberal arts education and some of the world's leading research in the biological and physical sciences.

Breakthroughs at Iowa State changing the world are in the areas of human, social, economic, and environmental sustainability;[21] new materials and processes for biomedical as well as industrial applications; nutrition, health, and wellness for humans and animals; transportation and infrastructure; food safety and security; plant and animal sciences; information and decision sciences; and renewable energies. The focus on technology has led directly to many research patents and inventions including the first binary computer, the ABC, Maytag blue cheese, the round hay baler, and many more.[22]

Located on a 2, acres (&#;km2) campus, the university has grown considerably from its roots as an agricultural college and model farm and is recognized internationally today for its comprehensive research programs. It continues to grow and set a new record for enrollment in the fall of with 36, students.[23]


Colleges and schools[edit]

Iowa State University is organized into eight colleges and two schools that offer Bachelor's degree programs, Masters programs, and 83 Ph.D programs, including one professional degree program in Veterinary Medicine.

ISU is home to the following schools:

  • Greenlee School of Journalism and Mass Communication (within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences)
  • School of Education (within the College of Human Sciences)


Classified as one of Carnegie's "R1: Doctoral Universities - Very High Research Activity,"[34] Iowa State receives nearly $ million in research grants annually.[35]

The university is one of 62 elected members of the Association of American Universities, an organization composed of the most highly ranked public and private research universities in the U.S. and Canada.

In Iowa State university became part of only fifty-four institutions in the U.S. to have earned the "Innovation and Economic Prosperity University" designation by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.[36]

The agriculture and forestry programs was ranked 16th in the world by QS for [37] The statistics program is ranked tied for 20th in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report for [38] In engineering specialties, at schools whose highest degree is a doctorate, Iowa State's biological/agricultural engineering program is ranked first, the mechanical and civil are ranked 9th and 16th nationally in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report.[citation needed] Almost all of the engineering specialities at ISU are ranked in the top 30 nationally.[citation needed] ISU's chemistry and physics programs are considered to be some of the best in the world and are ranked in the Top globally and in Top 50 nationally.[39] ISU's Greenlee School of Journalism and Mass Communication is one of the top journalism schools in the country and is notable for being among the first group of accredited journalism and mass communication programs.[40] Greenlee is also cited as one of the leading JMC research programs in the nation, ranked 23rd in a publication by the AEJMC.[41]

The National Science Foundation ranks ISU 78th in the nation in total research and development expenditures and 94th in research and development expenditures for science and engineering.[42] Currently, ISU ranks second nationally in license and options executed on its intellectual property and #2 nationally in license and options that yield income.[citation needed]

In , ISU's landscape architecture program was ranked as the 10th best undergraduate program in the nation, and architecture as the 18th best.[43]

Parks Library[edit]

W. Robert and Ellen Sorge Parks Library

The W. Robert and Ellen Sorge Parks Library contains over million books and subscribes to more than 98, journal titles. Named for W. Robert Parks (–), the 11th president of Iowa State University, and his wife, Ellen Sorge Parks, the original library was built in with three subsequent additions made in , , and The library was dedicated and named after W. Robert and Ellen Sorge Parks in [44]

Parks Library provides extensive research collections, services, and information literacy instruction/information for all students. Facilities consist of the main Parks Library, the e-Library, the Veterinary Medical Library, two subject-oriented reading rooms (design and mathematics), and a remote library storage building.

The Library's extensive collections include electronic and print resources that support research and study for all undergraduate and graduate programs. Nationally recognized collections support the basic and applied fields of biological and physical sciences. The Parks Library includes four public service desks: the Learning Connections Center, the Circulation Desk, the Media Center (including Maps, Media, Microforms, and Course Reserve collections), and Special Collections. The Library's instruction program includes a required undergraduate information literacy course as well as a wide variety of subject-based seminars on the effective use of Library resources for undergraduate and graduate students.

The e-Library, accessed through the Internet, provides access to local and Web-based resources including electronic journals and books, local collections, online indexes, electronic course reserves and guides, and a broad range of subject research guides.

Surrounding the first floor lobby staircase in Parks Library are eight mural panels designed by Iowa artist Grant Wood. As with Breaking the Prairie Sod, Wood's other Iowa State University mural painted two years later, Wood borrowed his theme for When Tillage Begins Other Arts Follow from a speech on agriculture delivered by Daniel Webster in at the State House in Boston. Webster said, “When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers therefore are the founders of human civilization.” Wood had planned to create seventeen mural panels for the library, but only the eleven devoted to agriculture and the practical arts were completed. The final six, which would have hung in the main reading room (now the Periodical Room) and were to have depicted the fine arts, were never begun.[45]

Intensive English and Orientation Program[edit]

The university has an IEOP for foreign students. Students whose native language is not English can take IEOP courses to improve their English proficiency to help them succeed at University-level study. IEOP course content also helps students prepare for English proficiency exams, like the TOEFL and IELTS. Classes included in the IEOP include Grammar, Reading, Writing, Oral Communication and Business and various bridge classes.


Birthplace of first electronic digital computer[edit]

Iowa State is the birthplace of the first electronic digital computer, starting the world's computer technology revolution. Invented by mathematics and physics professor John Atanasoff and engineering graduate student Clifford Berry during –42, the Atanasoff-Berry Computer pioneered important elements of modern computing.[18]

On October 19, , U.S. Federal JudgeEarl R. Larson signed his decision following a lengthy court trial which declared the ENIAC patent of Mauchly and Eckert invalid and named Atanasoff the inventor of the electronic digital computer—the Atanasoff-Berry Computer or the ABC.[18]

An ABC Team consisting of Ames Laboratory and Iowa State engineers, technicians, researchers and students unveiled a working replica of the Atanasoff-Berry Computer in which can be seen on display on campus in the Durham Computation Center.[46]

Birth of cooperative extension[edit]

The Extension Service traces its roots to farmers' institutes developed at Iowa State in the late 19th century. Committed to community, Iowa State pioneered the outreach mission of being a land-grant college through creation of the first Extension Service in In , the Iowa Legislature enacted the Agricultural Extension Act making funds available for demonstration projects. It is believed this was the first specific legislation establishing state extension work, for which Iowa State assumed responsibility. The national extension program was created in based heavily on the Iowa State model.[47][48][49]

VEISHEA celebration[edit]

Main article: VEISHEA

The VEISHEA Battle of the Bands

Iowa State is widely known for VEISHEA, an annual education and entertainment festival that was held on campus each spring. The name VEISHEA was derived from the initials of ISU's five original colleges, forming an acronym as the university existed when the festival was founded in

  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Engineering
  • Industrial Science
  • Home Economics
  • Agriculture

VEISHEA was the largest student run festival in the nation, bringing in tens of thousands of visitors to the campus each year.

The celebration featured an annual parade and many open-house demonstrations of the university facilities and departments. Campus organizations exhibited products, technologies, and held fund raisers for various charity groups. In addition, VEISHEA brought speakers, lecturers, and entertainers to Iowa State, and throughout its over eight decade history, it has hosted such distinguished guests as Bob Hope, John Wayne, Presidents Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan, and Lyndon Johnson, and performers Diana Ross, Billy Joel, Sonny and Cher, The Who, The Goo Goo Dolls, Bobby V, and The Black Eyed Peas.[50]

The VEISHEA festivities marked the start of Iowa State's year-long sesquicentennial celebration.

On August 8, , President Steven Leath announced that VEISHEA would no longer be an annual event at Iowa State and the name VEISHEA would be retired.[51]

Manhattan Project[edit]

Iowa State played a role in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II as part of the Manhattan Project, a research and development program begun in under the Army Corps of Engineers.[52]

The process to produce large quantities of high-purity uranium metal became known as the Ames process. One-third of the uranium metal used in the world's first controlled nuclear chain reaction was produced at Iowa State under the direction of Frank Spedding and Harley Wilhelm.[53][54] The Ames Project received the Army/Navy E Award for Excellence in Production on October 12, , for its work with metallic uranium as a vital war material.[55] Today, ISU is the only university in the United States that has a U.S. Department of Energy research laboratory physically located on its campus.[56]


Ames Laboratory[edit]

Main article: Ames Laboratory

Iowa State is the only university in the United States that has a U.S. Department of Energy research laboratory physically located on its campus. Operated by Iowa State, the Ames Laboratory is one of ten national DOE Office of Science research laboratories.[57]

ISU research for the government provided Ames Laboratory its start in the s with the development of a highly efficient process for producing high-purity uranium for atomic energy. Today, Ames Laboratory continues its leading status in current materials research and focuses diverse fundamental and applied research strengths upon issues of national concern, cultivates research talent, and develops and transfers technologies to improve industrial competitiveness and enhance U.S. economic security. Ames Laboratory employs more than full- and part-time employees, including more than scientists and engineers. Students make up more than 20 percent of the paid workforce.[58]

The Ames Laboratory is the U.S. home to Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner Dan Shechtman and is intensely engaged with the international scientific community, including hosting a large number of international visitors each year.[59]

ISU Research Park[edit]

The ISU Research Park is a acre development with over , square feet of building space located just south of the Iowa State campus in Ames. Though closely connected with the university, the research park operates independently to help tenants reach their proprietary goals, linking technology creation, business formation, and development assistance with established technology firms and the marketplace.

The ISU Research Park Corporation was established in as a not-for-profit, independent, corporation operating under a board of directors appointed by Iowa State University and the ISU Foundation. The corporation manages both the Research Park and incubator programs.[60]

Other research institutes[edit]

Iowa State is involved in a number of other significant research and creative endeavors, multidisciplinary collaboration, technology transfer, and strategies addressing real-world problems.

In , the Biorenewables Research Laboratory opened in a LEED-Gold certified building that complements and helps replace labs and offices across Iowa State and promotes interdisciplinary, systems-level research and collaboration. The Lab houses the Bioeconomy Institute, the Biobased Industry Center, and the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals, a partnership of six universities as well as the Max Planck Society in Germany and the Technical University of Denmark.[61]

The Engineering Teaching and Research Complex was built in and is home to Stanley and Helen Howe Hall and Gary and Donna Hoover Hall.[62] The complex is occupied by the Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC), Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS), Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Engineering Computer Support Services, Engineering Distance Education, and Iowa Space Grant Consortium.[62] And the complex contains one of the world's only six-sided immersive virtual reality labs (C6), as well as the seat 3D-capable Alliant Energy Lee Liu Auditorium, the Multimodal Experience Testbed and Laboratory (METaL), and the User Experience Lab (UX Lab).[63] All of which supports the research of more than 50 faculty and graduate, undergraduate, and postdoctoral students.[64]

The Plant Sciences Institute was founded in [65] PSI's research focus is to understand the effects of genotype (genetic makeup) and environment on phenotypes (traits) sufficiently well that it will be able to predict the phenotype of a given genotype in a given environment.[66] The institute is housed in the Roy J. Carver Co-Laboratory and is home to the Plant Sciences Institute Faculty Scholars program.[67]

There is also the Iowa State University Northeast Research Farm in Nashua.[68]


Main article: Campus of Iowa State University


The medallion located in Central Campus, immediately to the west of Curtiss Hall

Iowa State's campus contains over buildings. Several buildings, as well as the Marston Water Tower, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[69] The central campus includes acres (&#;km2) of trees, plants, and classically designed buildings. The landscape's most dominant feature is the acre (81,&#;m2) central lawn, which was listed as a "medallion site" by the American Society of Landscape Architects in , one of only three central campuses designated as such. The other two were Harvard University and the University of Virginia.[70]

Thomas Gaines, in The Campus As a Work of Art, proclaimed the Iowa State campus to be one of the twenty-five most beautiful campuses in the country. Gaines noted Iowa State's park-like expanse of central campus, and the use of trees and shrubbery to draw together ISU's varied building architecture. Over decades, campus buildings, including the Campanile, Beardshear Hall, and Curtiss Hall, circled and preserved the central lawn, creating a space where students study, relax, and socialize.[71]


Main article: Campanile (Iowa State University)

The campanile as seen from the north

The campanile was constructed during as a memorial to Margaret MacDonald Stanton, Iowa State's first dean of women, who died on July 25, The tower is located on ISU's central campus, just north of the Memorial Union. The site was selected by Margaret's husband, Edgar W. Stanton, with the help of then-university president William M. Beardshear. The campanile stands feet (34&#;m) tall on a 16 by 16 foot (5 by 5 m) base, and cost $6, to construct.[72]

The campanile is widely seen as one of the major symbols of Iowa State University. It is featured prominently on the university's official ring[73] and the university's mace,[74] and is also the subject of the university's alma mater, The Bells of Iowa State.[72]

Lake LaVerne[edit]

Named for Dr. LaVerne W. Noyes, who also donated the funds to see that Alumni Hall could be completed after sitting unfinished and unused from to Dr. Noyes is an alumnus. Lake LaVerne is located west of the Memorial Union and south of Alumni Hall, Carver Hall, and Music Hall. The lake was a gift from Dr. Noyes in

Lake LaVerne is the home of two mute swans named Sir Lancelot and Elaine, donated to Iowa State by VEISHEA [75] In , , and cygnets (baby swans) made their home on Lake LaVerne. Previously Sir Lancelot and Elaine were trumpeter swans but were too aggressive and in were replaced with two mute swans.

In early spring , Lake LaVerne welcomed its newest and most current mute swan duo. In support of Iowa Department of Natural Resources efforts to re-establish the trumpeter swans in Iowa, university officials avoided bringing breeding pairs of male and female mute swans to Iowa State which means the current Sir Lancelot and Elaine are both female.[76]

Reiman Gardens[edit]

Iowa State has maintained a horticulture garden since Reiman Gardens is the third location for these gardens. Today's gardens began in with a gift from Bobbi and Roy Reiman. Construction began in and the Gardens' initial 5 acres (20,&#;m2) were officially dedicated on September 16,

Reiman Gardens has since grown to become a 14 acres (57,&#;m2) site consisting of a dozen distinct garden areas, an indoor conservatory and an indoor butterfly "wing", butterfly emergence cases, a gift shop, and several supporting greenhouses. Located immediately south of Jack Trice Stadium on the ISU campus, Reiman Gardens is a year-round facility that has become one of the most visited attractions in central Iowa.

The Gardens has received a number of national, state, and local awards since its opening, and its rose gardens are particularly noteworthy. It was honored with the President's Award in by All American Rose Selections, Inc., which is presented to one public garden in the United States each year for superior rose maintenance and display: “For contributing to the public interest in rose growing through its efforts in maintaining an outstanding public rose garden.”[77]

University museums[edit]

The university museums consist of the Brunnier Art Museum, Farm House Museum, the Art on Campus Program, the Christian Petersen Art Museum, and the Elizabeth and Byron Anderson Sculpture Garden. The Museums include a multitude of unique exhibits, each promoting the understanding and delight of the visual arts as well as attempt to incorporate a vast interaction between the arts, sciences, and technology.[78]

Brunnier Art Museum[edit]

The Brunnier Art Museum, Iowa's only accredited museum emphasizing a decorative arts collection, is one of the nation's few museums located within a performing arts and conference complex, the Iowa State Center.[79] Founded in , the museum is named after its benefactors, Iowa State alumnus Henry J. Brunnier and his wife Ann. The decorative arts collection they donated, called the Brunnier Collection, is extensive, consisting of ceramics, glass, dolls, ivory, jade, and enameled metals.

Other fine and decorative art objects from the University Art Collection include prints, paintings, sculptures, textiles, carpets, wood objects, lacquered pieces, silver, and furniture. About eight to 12 annual changing exhibitions and permanent collection exhibitions provide educational opportunities for all ages, from learning the history of a quilt hand-stitched over years ago to discovering how scientists analyze the physical properties of artists' materials, such as glass or stone. Lectures, receptions, conferences, university classes, panel discussions, gallery walks, and gallery talks are presented to assist with further interpretation of objects.

Farm House Museum[edit]

Main article: The Farm House (Knapp–Wilson House)

Located near the center of the Iowa State campus, the Farm House Museum sits as a monument to early Iowa State history and culture as well as a National Historic Landmark. As the first building on campus, the Farm House was built in before campus was occupied by students or even classrooms. The college's first farm tenants primed the land for agricultural experimentation. This early practice lead to Iowa State Agricultural College and Model Farm opening its doors to Iowa students for free in under the Morrill Act (or Land-grant Act) of [80]

Many prominent figures have made the Farm House their home throughout its years of use. The first president of the college, Adonijah Welch, briefly stayed at the Farm House and even wrote his inaugural speech in a bedroom on the second floor. James “Tama Jim” Wilson resided for much of the s with his family at the Farm House until he joined President William McKinley's cabinet as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. Agriculture Dean Charles Curtiss and his young family replaced Wilson and became the longest resident of Farm House.

In , over years after the initial construction, the Farm House became a museum after much time and effort was put into restoring the early beauty of the modest farm home. Today, faculty, students, and community members can enjoy the museum while honoring its significance in shaping a nationally recognized land-grant university. Its collection boasts a large collection of 19th and early 20th century decorative arts, furnishings and material culture reflecting Iowa State and Iowa heritage. Objects include furnishings from Carrie Chapman Catt and Charles Curtiss, a wide variety of quilts, a modest collection of textiles and apparel, and various china and glassware items.

As with many sites on the Iowa State University Campus, The Farm House Museum has a few old myths and legends associated with it. There are rumors of a ghost changing silverware and dinnerware, unexplained rattling furniture, and curtains that have opened seemingly by themselves.

The Farm House Museum is a unique on-campus educational resource providing a changing environment of exhibitions among the historical permanent collection objects that are on display. A walk through the Farm House Museum immerses visitors in the Victorian era (–) as well as exhibits colorful Iowa and local Ames history.

Art on Campus Collection[edit]

Iowa State is home to one of the largest campus public art programs in the United States. Over 2, works of public art, including by significant national and international artists, are located across campus in buildings, courtyards, open spaces and offices.[81]

The traditional public art program began during the Depression in the s when Iowa State College's President Raymond Hughes envisioned that "the arts would enrich and provide substantial intellectual exploration into our college curricula." Hughes invited Grant Wood to create the Library's agricultural murals that speak to the founding of Iowa and Iowa State College and Model Farm. He also offered Christian Petersen a one-semester sculptor residency to design and build the fountain and bas relief at the Dairy Industry Building. In , 21 years later, Petersen retired having created 12 major sculptures for the campus and hundreds of small studio sculptures.

The Art on Campus Collection is a campus-wide resource of over public works of art. Programs, receptions, dedications, university classes, Wednesday Walks, and educational tours are presented on a regular basis to enhance visual literacy and aesthetic appreciation of this diverse collection.

The Elizabeth and Byron Anderson Sculpture Garden is located by the Christian Petersen Art Museum at historic Morrill Hall. The sculpture garden design incorporates sculptures, a gathering arena, and sidewalks and pathways. Planted with perennials, ground cover, shrubs, and flowering trees, the landscape design provides a distinctive setting for important works of 20th and 21st century sculpture, primarily American. Ranging from forty-four inches to nearly nine feet high and from bronze to other metals, these works of art represent the richly diverse character of modern and contemporary sculpture.[83]

The sculpture garden is adjacent to Iowa State's 22 acres (89,&#;m2) central campus. Adonijah Welch, ISU's first president, envisioned a picturesque campus with a winding road encircling the college's majestic buildings, vast lawns of green grass, many varieties of trees sprinkled throughout to provide shade, and shrubbery and flowers for fragrance. Today, the central lawn continues to be an iconic place for all Iowa Staters, and enjoys national acclaim as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. The new Elizabeth and Byron Anderson Sculpture Garden further enhances the beauty of Iowa State.


Iowa State's composting facility is capable of processing over 10, tons of organic waste every year.[84][85] The school's $3 million revolving loan fund loans money for energy efficiency and conservation projects on campus.[86] In the College Sustainability Report Card issued by the Sustainable Endowments Institute, the university received a B grade.[87]

The Memorial Union at Iowa State University opened in September and is currently home to a number of University departments and student organizations, a bowling alley, the University Book Store, and the Hotel Memorial Union.

The original building was designed by architect, William T. Proudfoot. The building employs a classical style of architecture reflecting Greek and Roman influences. The building's design specifically complements the designs of the major buildings surrounding the University's Central Campus area, Beardshear Hall to the west, Curtiss Hall to the east, and MacKay Hall to the north. The style utilizes columns with Corinthian capitals, Palladian windows, triangular pediments, and formally balanced facades.[90]

Designed to be a living memorial for ISU students lost in World War I, the building includes a solemn memorial hall, named the Gold Star Room, which honors the names of the dead World War I, World War II, Korean, Vietnam, and War on Terrorism veterans engraved in marble. Symbolically, the hall was built directly over a library (the Browsing Library) and a small chapel, the symbol being that no country would ever send its young men to die in a war for a noble cause without a solid foundation on both education (the library) and religion (the chapel).

Renovations and additions have continued through the years to include: elevators, bowling lanes, a parking ramp, a book store, food court, and additional wings.


The Choral Division of the Department of Music and Theater at Iowa State University consists of over choristers in four main ensembles – the Iowa State Singers, Cantamus, the Iowa Statesmen, and Lyrica – and multiple small ensembles including three a cappella groups, Count Me In (female), Shy of a Dozen (male), and "Hymn and Her" (co-ed).

Sorocis, was established only two years later, in I.C. Sorocis later became a chapter of the first national sorority at Iowa State, Pi Beta Phi. Anti-Greek rioting occurred in As reported in The Des Moines Register, "The anti-secret society men of the college met in a mob last night about 11 o'clock in front of the society rooms in chemical and physical hall, determined to break up a joint meeting of three secret societies." In , President William Beardshear banned students from joining secret college fraternities, resulting in the eventual closing of all formerly established fraternities. President Storms lifted the ban in [95]

Following the lifting of the fraternity ban, the first thirteen national fraternities (IFC) installed on the Iowa State campus between and were, in order, Sigma Nu, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Beta Theta Pi, Phi Gamma Delta, Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Sigma, Theta Xi, Acacia, Phi Sigma Kappa, Delta Tau Delta, Pi Kappa Alpha, and Phi Delta Theta.[96] Though some have suspended their chapters at various times, eleven of the original thirteen fraternities were active in Many of these chapters existed on campus as local fraternities before being reorganized as national fraternities, prior to

The next day, the Chicago Tribune's headline read "Struck by a Cyclone: It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town."[98] The article began, "Northwestern might as well have tried to play football with an Iowa cyclone as with the Iowa team it met yesterday." The nickname stuck.

The school colors are cardinal and gold. The mascot is Cy the Cardinal, introduced in Since a cyclone was determined to be difficult to depict in costume, the cardinal was chosen in reference to the school colors. A contest was held to select a name for the mascot, with the name Cy being chosen as the winner.
