The city of Ames is a friendly and welcoming place for new students. A small college town of 60,000, it is often characterized as ''clean and green'' due to the hundreds of acres of parks, recreational facilities, and bike paths it offers, and the fact that it has no polluting industries. Ames has been consistently listed in many ranking lists including the ones for the best college towns, the most liveable small cities of the US, and the best places to live in America. The city-wide bus system CyRide offers reliable fare-free transport for students. Ames is 30 minutes away from Des Moines (the capital of Iowa), and 3 hours away from Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha, thus our students often travel together to the ''big cities'' during their campus breaks.


Ames has dozens of churches or communities of worship, including Protestant and Catholic Christian churches, a synagogue, and an Islamic center. A Hindu temple is located in the nearby town of Madrid.

Restaurants and ethnic markets

Ames has a wide variety of ethnic restaurants and food markets, including Asian, British, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Korean, Mexican, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisine. In addition to the mainstream supermarkets, Ames also has international grocery stores, organic food stores, and Asian food stores.
