Ames is more than just a college town

Most people think of Iowa State University when Ames, Iowa is discussed; however, the college town offers so much more than just entertainment for college students.

Yes, it is home to one of the oldest land-grant universities in the country; but, there are many other great attractions in Ames.

Any who have seen the vibrant publications that are printed by Reiman Publications would understand why Roy Reiman would want to donate money to the university for such a beautiful place as Reiman Gardens.
