    We're not sure why it started, but for more than 70 years students have stepped around the Zodiac in Gold Star Hall. Apparently stepping on the Zodiac ensures you will fail your next exam.

  • Iowa State University

    The Memorial Union was built in 1927-28 as a memorial to those who lost their lives in World War I. Gold Star Hall houses the names of all Iowa Staters lost in the wars and conflicts lost since then.

    It is not a five star hotel but I love after a long day walking around campus, I can go to my room. No driving involved. The staff is very friendly and they have great customer service.

    This place smells bad and there's no wifi in the rooms.
