The state of Iowa is sprawling, mostly covered with farmland and plenty of bucolic scenery. It doesn't boast lots of big cities but rather small towns where the people are friendly and life is pretty simple. Colleges in Iowa are pretty much concentrated in and around the capital city of Des Moines; Cedar Rapids, Dubuque or Sioux City. Smaller towns like Fort Dodge or Waterloo are also home to some smaller, independent colleges or campuses that belong to the state university system.

Below are some of our most requested featured institutions that are currently accepting applications from Iowa residents.

That said, the University of Iowa is actually located in a small town - Iowa City - but is just a short drive from Cedar Rapids. This nearly 2,000-acre campus enrolls about 28,000 students and offers 11 different colleges. Most undergraduates are part of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, but Master's and doctoral candidates are found in the other 10 schools, including colleges of Medicine, Law, Engineering, Nursing and Pharmacy.

As is true for much of the Midwest, Iowa is home to many colleges and universities that were founded by various churches, scattered throughout the state. Such schools include those founded by the Catholic Church like Loras College in Dubuque or Briar Cliff in Sioux City, lauded by U.S. News and World Report as an outstanding regional university.
