Making ice cream is a sweet job for ISU students

Students at Iowa State have an opportunity many of us dreamed of as kids. Working at a creamery making ice cream. The Creamery provides students a hands-on experience in food safety, pasteurization, and retail. Some students even work on creating new flavors. All of the ice cream is handmade, with students adding toppings, flavors, and packaging the ice cream on-site. It's a unique opportunity, with only around 20 other universities having on-campus creameries. Each year the Creamery produces around 5,000 gallons of ice cream and nearly 600 pounds of cheddar cheese and cheese curds.
