College of Human Sciences Campus Visits

Out of an abundance of caution and to prioritize the health and safety of our guests, we will be continuing to host College of Human Sciences visits virtually during the spring and summer of 2021. In the meantime, we are available to connect with you remotely.

Group Visits

We welcome school groups and organizations, comprised of ten or more students in sixth grade or above, who are interested in an educational visit to explore the opportunities in the College of Human Sciences. We will work with your group to find tours and activities to meet your interests. Some examples include: 

Please note, availability of activities will depend on date of your visit, as well as group size.

Iowa State’s Admissions Office offers group visits that include campus-wide opportunities.


If your visit will be over the lunch hour, you can bring sack lunches or choose from the many places to eat on campus.

Group visits can be scheduled almost any time throughout the year; however, there will be dates that are unavailable due to scheduled events. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays typically work best.
