If you’re planning a campus visit, stop in and say hello to the staff in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) office in 2230 Palmer Building. An academic adviser will be glad to discuss course requirements and answer your questions in person, by phone, or via email. We also encourage you to visit the Iowa State University Admissions Office to speak with an adviser.
