Culture. ISU has cows and corn, but we also have culture. It's found in the Library, on the Memorial Union lawn, at the Iowa State Center -- just to name a few places. Ames may be situated amongst cornfields, but we haven't been overlooked by the artists. Grant Wood's mural grace our library. Christian Petersen's statues give our campus aesthetic beauty and the Iowa State Center annually attracts prime artists. All of these add to the cultural atmosphere at ISU.
