Behind the tulips is the OC or Old capitol building, located at the heart of the Pentacrest, this former state capitol building was given to the University by state legislators when they moved Iowa’s capital from Iowa City to Des Moines in1857, all this and much more you can learn by visiting it's museum.
We also walked past the bar Airliner where the famous actor, Ashton Kutcher was discovered by a modeling agent. In case you are wondering, Ashton was no longer a student when I enrolled so it didn't have anything to do with my decision to enroll, although it would have been kinda cool to have run into him.
The Colleges of Law, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Public Health are across the Iowa River, along with the U Of I Hospital which I might mention is recognized as one of the best hospitals in the United States and Iowa's only comprehensive academic medical center. Maybe with this tour Beli will be interested in becoming a Hawkeye. Too early to tell? I agree.
