    Accepted to ISU as a transfer student!

    I'm Edd from the UK, and as you can tell I'm new to this forum, the reason behind this is, I found out I'm coming to Iowa State next year!

    So I've come here to get the lowdown on the place (past the research I've done on all of the academic issues and stuff you would read on there website!)

    Whats the party scene like? Which halls should I go for? What are the girls like? I hear theres a pretty big gender imbalance.

    (sorry about the second thread, forgot you americans say transfer to mean something different to exchange!)

    Campus is about 57% male. Adjusted for engineers with no social life, it's pretty close to 50-50.

    If you have a British accent, you will have no shortage of women to choose from.

    That's what I was going to say! It's a bit presumptuous of the original poster to say he's from the UK and we are to assume that he means Great Britain.

    Haha, sorry guys, yeah I am from England, from Birmingham (no Alabama!), I'm going on an exchange program next year (didnt realise you americans said transfer to say something else), Im really excited about it though. How do you guys go out? Do you all drink etc.? Its gonna be a bit of a culture shock suddenly not being bale to drink or anything.

    After doing a survey with 178 guys and 1 girl, I estimated that there is only 1 girl for every 178 guys

    Drinking is encouraged, we have an entire week devoted to it.

    Friley Hall is a good time, but you'll have a good time in any of the dorms. And as already mentioned, you will do very well with the ladies with a British accent

    If you believe college will be like Van Wilder, American Pie, or any other college movie prepare to be disappointed.
