Why MyState is Awesome
If you haven’t heard of the MyState app you must be living at the bottom of Lake Laverne. Because, let me tell you, it may be the most useful app you ever download during your time here at Iowa State. Here are the reasons why:
–You can look to see what the CyRide buses are running, when the next bus is coming and look at future buses. This allows you to be able to have great planning and just overall makes life a lot easier.
–Don’t know which dining center you want to eat at tonight? You can check the menus at each of the dining centers and all of the cafes. As well as the hours and distance from your current location.
–If you are living in the dorms, you are able to check the status of washers and dryers. This saves you lots of time because you won’t have to make the trek down a million stair cases only to find that they are all in use.
–You can see the hours and locations of the testing centers.
–In my opinion, the most underrated aspect of the MyState app is the events tab. This allows you to see what events are going on each day on campus! It will tell you what time it’s at and what it’s all about. It also allows you to see certain categories of events. This includes athletics, performances, lectures, and many more.
–Check out the latest news! The Iowa State Daily has online stories about sports, opinion posts, style, local Ames stories, and even the news within your specific college.
–MyState as a directory! You’re able to access information (like email addresses and phone numbers) of Iowa State faculty.
–Within the extras tab, you’re able to properly prepare for all Iowa State athletics! It has a sing-a-long version of the Iowa State Fight Song as well as a pair of the kickoff keys. These even make noise when you shake your phone!
The only thing that’d make MyState better is if we had access to BlackBoard and AccessPlus, am I right or am I right?!
