Best Iowa State Athletics Team – Men’s Basketball

Best Thing to happen at ISU this year – Men’s Football Program

With Matt Campbell, former head coach of the University of Toledo, as Iowa State’s new head coach, this year’s football team was one for the books. This season included several high points that showed the team’s progress, including several near upsets and a blowout win over Texas Tech with a score of 66-10 at Jack Trice Stadium. With a promising class of recruits, the Ames and Iowa State communities are in for another heart-pumping season from this team next fall.

Best Fitness Facility – State Gym

Best Thing to happen in Ames this year – Panda Express

By the long line at the lunch hour, it is clear how much Iowa State students love Panda Express. Now with a second location on Duff Avenue, there is greater access to orange chicken throughout all of Ames.

Best Chiropractic Clinic – Rebarcak Chiropractic Pain Relief Center

Best Sorority – Delta Delta Delta Sorority

The purpose of Delta Delta Delta has and always will be to create unbreakable bonds of friendship and help each member grow and develop in every facet of their lives. Founded in 1888, Delta Delta Delta is a sorority built on the idea to “be kind alike to all and think more of the girl’s inner self and character than of her personal appearance.” Ever since then, Delta Delta Delta has created moral leaders, selfless philanthropists and life-changing friendships.

Best Fraternity – Farmhouse Fraternity

Best Nonprofit – ACCESS, Inc.

ACCESS, the Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support, started in 1974 because of the need to confront and combat the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence in Story County. Originally a rape crisis center, ACCESS’ services were expanded over the years to include a 24-hour crisis hotline and shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. The people of ACCESS live every day to give a sense of compassion, community and respect to the people who need it most.
