Hawkeye Community College Reviews

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.
Review Hawkeye Community College
Hawkeye CC has a rapidly growing campus and has unusually abundant resources and opportunities for a community college. There are many program tie-ins with the nearby University of Iowa, including shared access to many clubs and student activities. Would recommend for people seeking affordable tuition for a rewarding college experience.
Overall I am so happy I choose Hawkeye. I knew when I went on my first visit that this would be a great fit! It is also great they have housing right across the street, although not associated with the school, they do provide cheep small apartments for students and have apartments where you get assigned roommates like a dorm. You also have the option to room at UNI in their dorms and can participate in their school activities.
