Meet Us


We’re excited you’re considering Iowa State ! You now have the opportunity to join one of the most comprehensive design institutions in the country, located on theĀ west side of campus in Ames, Iowa.

You have multiple options when arranging your visit to Iowa State’s College of Design. You can go with a visit organized through the Office of Admissions or contact us for something individualized. Your options are below:

  • Office of Admissions

The Office of Admissions provides visit programs nearly every day including both virtual and on-campus opportunities. The College of Design participates in these visits Monday through Friday. All visits scheduled through the Office of Admissions on a weekday will include a virtual session with the College of Design.

Register for your visit now!

  • College of Design

The College of Design is not currently offering in-person visit opportunities during this unprecedented time to safeguard our faculty, staff, students, and our prospective students and their families. We know this is disappointing to everyone, but we are available to connect virtually while all faculty and staff have been directed to work off campus.

In an effort to meet the needs of our prospective students, the College of Design can:

  • Answer individual questions by email
  • Arrange video chats through Zoom or Webex with members of recruitment and advising staff
  • Connect you with College of Design alumni in your area for email, video chat, shadowing opportunities, or other forms of engagements
  • Schedule phone calls to address your questions and concerns
  • Provide College of Design presentations with commentary
  • Connect you with a current student for email or video communication

We appreciate your patience and flexibility during this extraordinary time and we look forward to welcoming you to campus once normal operating status is resumed.
