Hawkeye has a diverse choice of majors and programs. It’s a tight-knit community for people from all over to come together to learn together and get to know one another. There’s great one-on-one with professors and TAs, so anyone has a less likely chance of falling behind in classes. Love the school, love the people!

I think Hawkeye Community College is a great school. It prepares you for the workforce immediately during or after you graduate. I think the teachers there are very good. If any student isn’t sure of what college to go to and time is running out, I would recommend Hawkeye Community College. They have a good transfer program. I was working part-time during school months and full-time during vacation months. The teachers helped me find a well-paying job, which I am still currently at. I think the campus is gorgeous. The buildings are all very clean. The food is kind of expensive but its good.
I was a little intimidated going back to college at my age. I started going back to school at 28 years old, and I felt comfort from day one. All of my insecurities and inhibitions melted away and the staff has always been friendly and eager to help me on my educational journey. I believe the Hawkeye Community College excels in the advancement of students while giving them a safe environment to explore him or herself. The only thing I feel that HCC could change is making advertisement for the school more engaging. I didn't get a real feel for the school from any ads, I actually had to go to the school to experience it for myself. Overall, I feel like Hawkeye Community College is a very under rated school and a diamond in the rough.
