Hawkeye Community College Reviews
HCC offers a wide range of study, from transferable Liberal studies, to 2-year associate degrees, that get you working right out of college. The student body has a range of ages, from right out of high school up to older aged folks like myself. The application process is super easy. HCC has given me the freedom to be a parent & a student - excelling at life and school! They have some of the best instructors around - who not only care about your schooling, but your home life as well! Hawkeye Community College is the BEST option for Iowa's ccolleges in a 2 year format!
Hawkeye Community College is a great alternative and cheaper route if you wanna save some money and still get a good education. The campus is very nice and the buildings are all close together. This makes it very easy to get around and when it is cold out you will not be outside for long. Hawkeye offers a lot of different programs and extracurricular activities for a community college. The campus is also just outside of town so you will not have to worry about much traffic. However, Hawkeye is located in northern Iowa and the weather here can be very unpredictable. Overall, Hawkeye Community College is a great college.
Hawkeye Community College has been great to me so far. I would highly recommend any incoming students to take the College Experience class the first semester as recommended. I was planning on transferring rather than graduating, so I didn't take the class until right now, which is my last semester. There is so much information in that course about different services around campus that I didn't know existed, and I wish I had taken advantage of that sooner!
