    Iowa State's College of Business is shooting through the roof in undergraduate programs in most magazines, a lot of which I think is due to Gerdin.

    7-8 years ago, if you wanted business you went to UNI or Iowa. Now it's a closer margin.

    I thought that the ISU business school was just for people who dropped out of engineering and architecture.

    7-8? Heck, 3-4 years ago still when I was scoping out colleges. I have people to this day ask why I went into accounting at Iowa State when Iowa and UNI both have better business colleges. Iowa State has the top undergraduate program in this state, Iowa has the best graduate program. UNI has taken a hit as Iowa State's College of Business has grown. Iowa State has better faculty, better facilities, etc. A few years ago, UNI would've been the better school. Iowa State's effort to establish the CoB has gone extremely well.

    Is this the time when we bring Harrison Barnes into the thread, or does that cue come later?

    Yeah, it's got its own campanile and central lawn and everything...

    I just completed my accouting degree at Iowa State, and it was very challenging... glad to see it's finally getting some recognition
