The only thing Dubuque does not have that Iowa City does is UI.

I don't see having most bars in the Midwest such an honor. Means there are a lot of drunks or not a lot to do but go to bars.

Dirty Rapids? Cedar Crapids? I've never heard of these names before. I grew up in Cedar Rapids. And I had a wonderful time. It was clean when I was there. Of course there are bad parts of the city, but ALL cities have bad parts.

you should see the cesspool that southeast IC is becoming. They just need to bulldoze that whole area and start over.

Ames is not lame. Cedar Rapids is not crappy. Iowa is one of the best states in this country, if you don't like it, then move.

this post is nothing but a ill informed opinion containing little if any fact. Except for the fact that Iowa is one of the best states.

You're kidding right? I grew up in Ames. I lived just off of 24th Street. It would only take me about 10 minutes to walk to Iowa State. Iowa State is a more liberal school, and is harder to get into, IMO, than Iowa.

Iowa State is also a college for Engineers and Scientists. Iowa is for more Service career paths (teaching, business, etc.,) I got a degree in business at Iowa.

So who the heck do YOU think YOU are to tell me that I don't know my stuff.

I do not have a biased opinion, nor do I have a fabricated one, I have an experience opinion, if there is such a thing...

I am confused, you say you grew up in Iowa and got your business degree from U of Iowa. Below is a post you made in 2006 where you say you are in high school and moving to Dubuque.

We are moving to Dubuque from Cartersville, Georgia, about 40 minutes N of atlanta on I75. My grandparents live in the Dubuque area, and the rest of my family as well either lives down in Bellevue, IA, or in northern Illinois, so the move to Dubuque I hope will be a pleasent one. I am only in high school so, I know a lot about Dubuque, I spend a lot of time there, it is very scenic, and KKK activity,there may be a few nasty looks. But, its mostly gone. There are a few crappy neighborhoods by the colleges downtown but thats it. CRIME; almost unheard of... which will be a BIG change from Cartersville because atlanta has influxed its way up to Norhwest GA, almost to Rome. WELL, I hope Ive helped.

Pharmacy, law, medical and their own engineering program= more service jobs? No way. Are you sure you're not talking about UNI? U of I has more stringent admissions standards than ISU as well. I'm an ISU grad, but when you compare the two colleges and the two cities, my loyalty stops at backing Cy in football or basketball. Iowa City is a helluva great college city. Ames is a livable community, but lacks a lot of what makes places like Iowa City so great.
