What are your go-to bars/restaurants?
For the full-on Iowa City experience, John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville. Otherwise try Four Shadows or Cortland's Garage.
What should you order?
Get the all-you-can-drink beer special if the place has one. Remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint. You'll thank me later.
What landmarks/places remind you of your campus?
Seriously? I think Iowa City's tallest building could be stacked on itself five times and still be shorter than the Willis Tower.
How would you spend your downtime?
Like I need to tell you. Same way you do in Iowa City, belly up to a bar. If you don't like it, try the one next door.
33, Old Town
