Welcome to Iowa State – Iowa State Daily


Welcome to the State of Iowa; on behalf of the Iowa State Daily, we’re glad to have you!

The Iowa State Daily is here to highlight the diversity of thought that comes with a college campus. Each day, the Daily Dose will be in your email filled with news and entertainment tailored to the Ames and Iowa State community. We are a nonprofit, student-run publication with the goal of sharing information that helps you make informed decisions.

So, while you’re here to learn more about your chosen field, I encourage you to take advantage of the Iowa State Daily, as well as local news in general, to learn more about the events happening around you. . Even though we all specialize in specific areas of study, college should be a time when our knowledge grows as a whole.

Halfway through the semester, after many late nights, parking tickets, and ramen dinners, you might wonder why you signed up for this. I always try to remember that education is not a sprint. It’s a question of endurance.

In addition to taking notes and going to class, building relationships with my peers has always helped me navigate the many steep inclines that come my way through college.

There is so much to learn inside and outside the classroom in Iowa State. An academic setting should present the beauty of differences and the opportunity for debate. Expect to interact with people who will challenge your beliefs.

If you find any holes in our content, contact us and join the team. Any student, regardless of experience or specialization, can join The Daily. We have opportunities in writing, advertising, photography, public relations and more. Otherwise, we are always looking for advice; you can email me at [email protected]
