We’d Love to Meet You

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 visits virtually during the winter and spring of 2021. Choose the remote option that works best for you:

  • We are hosting virtual visit days. Discuss your major(s) of interest and specific questions by email, phone, or video chat. You can contact us at hs@iastate.edu or 515-294-0865 to schedule a time.
  • Text your questions directly to (515) 203-3539, and we will respond during business hours, 8a.m.-4p.m., Monday to Friday.

We know how disappointing and disruptive this is to your process of choosing a college and major, and we look forward to welcoming you to our campus soon.

When we are able to resume in-person programming later on in 2021, we will once again have these options available:

Day in the Life allows you to experience college life, with class and faculty introductions based on your interests. You’ll also have the chance to tour our classrooms and teaching labs. This is a second campus visit for high school seniors who have been offered admission.

Group Visits provide school classes, clubs, or organizations of 10 or more a taste of what the College of Human Sciences has to offer.
