Cardinal Eats

Media Production


Cardinal Eats is a food publication at Iowa State with the purpose of building a community of food lovers at Iowa State and the Ames community. Cardinal Eats has three main goals: (1) share our love for food through a print publication and online posts (2) give ISU students real life experience in journalism, online media, photography, design, marketing and events (3) gather together to enjoy food at events hosted by Cardinal Eats. These goals are achieved through four teams that include editorial, photography, design and marketing. Our publication covers the entire dining experience. From the most delicious places to eat in Ames, to how to prepare homemade creations. Cardinal Eats maps out a guide for students and visitors of Ames to get their food fix.


This organization has no affiliations.
