You may just be here for classes, but Iowa City has so MUCH more to offer than just lectures, labs and tests. Iowa City is immersed in Midwestern culture, entertainment, and wicked awesome food. Whether you spend your night watching a Broadway musical at Hancher or meet up at Black’s Gold Grill with some friends for lunch, there is sure to be something on campus for you! Here are some resources on how to find what’s happening in Iowa City!
Our campus features many diverse and delicious meal options both on campus and in downtown Iowa City! Here are the links to the places to eat on campus (Potentially with your meal plan!)….
…and off campus! (Yelp is pretty awesome because it features both photos and reviews from other people who have dined at the restaurant PLUS gives you directions!)
There is a lot to do on campus for fun. The University and downtown area have many opportunities to attend sporting events, musical performances, and much more!
If sports are your thing, rest assured that you only need to pay to get into Men’s Football Games and Men’s Basketball. Everything else is $free.99! To buy Basketball or Football tickets, check out
If you are more into music or the fine arts, make sure to check out the upcoming shows hosted at Hancher (which offers discounted tickets to most shows for students!)
Do yourself a favor and don’t go all four years without checking out the museums on campus and the Athletics Hall of Fame! Nothing better than displaying how awesome we are and all that we have achieved behind glass! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
