    Jim "Mad Money" Cramer is broadcasting from U of Iowa

    He's got the Hawk logo plastered all over and he's doing his show on campus.


    CNBC's Jim Cramer to talk at University of Iowa

    By DAVID PITT 1 day ago
    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) University of Iowa senior Alex Cullen walked by a television set as his older brother was watching a noisy guy bounce around on the screen, decapitating bobbleheads and talking about the stock market.
    It attracted his attention and he started watching Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" on CNBC.
    Three years later, when Cullen sent Cramer a video he posted on YouTube asking him to bring his "Mad Money Back to School Tour" to Iowa City, Cramer said yes.
    Cramer will speak to a few classes Wednesday. A show will be taped in the Iowa Memorial Union for broadcast at 5 p.m. CST.
    Cullen, a 22-year-old finance major from Downers Grove, Ill., is president of the Financial Management Association, a 200-member student group that brings professional speakers to campus and helps students explore the job market.
    "He's the guy that got me interested in investing and in the stock market," Cullen said of Cramer.


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    Why would he choose to do a show at a junior college?

    my guess is they have a pretty good business school and he talked quite a bit about ethanol

    take off the colored shades - this is a good way to introduce students to someone a lot of their clients will be watching on tv.

    Yet ISU has programs that are much easier to get into then the UofI. Just kidding I love the ISU campus and enjoy going to school here. For those reason and those reasons only is why I picked to go to school at ISU!

    Let me get this right, you decided attend ISU based solely on the quality of campus and because it is enjoyable to attend?

    Me thinks picking a school for the education might be more worthwhile.....

    Good point. My last sentence led to the wrong impression. My bad. I liked everything about ISU for school purposes. EDUCATION, campus, housing, the town of Ames, etc...

    Cramer's interesting to watch and has an almost cult following. Not sure how smart he really is, but he is great entertainment.
