Ever wonder what it’s like to style a photo shoot? Walk the runway of a fashion show? Or make a famous apparel, events, and hospitality management (AESHM) cherry pie? Visit the AESHM department to do all these things — and more!

Campus visits

AESHM offers three visit opportunities for students interested in studying apparel, merchandising, and design; event management; or hospitality management.

Campus visit: Contact the Admissions Office at 800-262-3810 to arrange for a campus visit. While meeting with an adviser during the academic information session of the visit, you will learn more about each program.

Day in the Life: Find out what it’s really like to be an Iowa State student by signing up for the “Day in the Life” visit day. You’ll attend classes, meet faculty in your area of interest, tour facilities, and get your first Iowa State dining experience.

Behind the Scenes Day: High school students interested in the apparel, merchandising, and design major should check out this visit day, held in early spring. Students will get a first-hand look at the variety of classes offered to apparel majors, and attend the dress rehearsal of the annual Fashion Show.
