I worked at Iowa State University as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The professors care about the students, and it is a great way to get a taste of what the life of research is like. The staff took all the students on many fun trips, and were pleasant to work with. They have some of the coolest equipment for HCI research I've seen anywhere.

Cons

Iowa State is located in Ames, IA. If you are used to living in a big city, this will be a big change. There are a few bars open, but not much else to do in the town. It is very much a campus town and is quite quite in the summers.

    Need to find a way to attract and keep more professors.
    Not a very convenient location, potential challenge for outer state internships and jobs.
