    • A Message from School
    • Greetings from Iowa!
      Thank you for visiting our profile on ApplyESL.com. The Culture and Intensive English Program (CIEP) of the University of Northern Iowa is located in the clean, safe city of Cedar Falls, Iowa. The university has a beautiful, open campus. CIEP students have their classes in university classrooms and live in the university dormitories. The CIEP instructors are experienced, energetic, and very dedicated to their students' education. Our students can use all university facilities including the library, computer labs, cafeterias, and sports centers. Outside of class, we organize trips for education, culture, or just plain fun. The university plans a trip to Chicago every year. You can also visit the Mall of America's about 4 hours away by car. Please contact me if you have any questions. I am sure that you will love the experience of living in the Midwest of the USA. I hope to see you in Iowa!
