Moving to Des Moines

February 15, 2011 —

There are so many things to consider when picking your next place to live. Here’s a nice blog on things to consider about your potential new neighborhood!

I know students for the incoming classes are already asking current students for recommendations on where to live. What other info should we share with these new-to-Des Moines students?


Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
