The quality of services that are provided on campus are very nice. There is counseling and health services offered here at Indian Hills which makes it easier to get the help students might need but couldn't access or afford if it wasn't available. I have severe anxiety and depression so being able to receive free counseling while staying in school helps more than I can say. There is also financial aid help and academic advisors that explain the financial maze and help students understand their bill, what classes they need for their program, etc. There are many more services as well that aid in the success of students here at Hills!
Review Indian Hills Community College
I've really enjoyed my past year here at Indian Hills. The classes are challenging, but it's still easy to get grades. The staff is fantastic: accessible, and very helpful! I've especially enjoyed my American Literature class, graphic design, and Art History classes. The particular professors who teach those classes know how to make the subjects interesting and are able to explain the subjects on the student's level. Indian Hills is unique because it offers a variety of programs at a reasonable cost. Overall, I would definitely choose this school again.
My overall experience at Indian Hills Community College has been great so far. The small class sizes and staff make it easier to get one on one experience with the professors and not make it seem so overwhelming. There are many resources here to help you with things like financial aid, registering for classes, etc. Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming and one of the great things is that it is affordable as well!
