Iowa State University campus life

<p>Hi, I am international student gonna start my master in engineering @ ISU. I am curious about campus life and the environment in general in Ames IA. I know it is small city and some people say it is kinda boring city, but do you think Des Moins is great place to have fun during weekends or it is dull city? What about people in Ames or Iowa in general, are they friendly?</p>
