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!

I take online classes through Hawkeye and so far all of them have been great! The professors seem to really care about their students while providing them with an outstanding education. I feel that I really have learned a lot through my pre-college experiences and cannot wait to take more classes. I feel that Hawkeye offers a wide variety of classes that can benefit anyone. I highly recommend Hawkeye Community College.
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!
