I’ve had an okay experience here. Yes, there’s study space, exercise equipment, and other things. But when it comes down to teachers, there is no student assessment of the teacher to let the teacher know how they’re doing. Also the administration has been lacking on communication with students this entire pandemic. Yes, this situation is unique but it’s has also been over a month or 2 since any one has heard what is going on and what the plan is for fall term. Communication between students and teachers, and students and administration lacks.

Study there is quite and instructors and staffs are committed to teach what they know to change everyone's life if interested to. There are many oppotunities to do so, from non credits courses to credits courses, through advanced training. There are many ways to ask for help. For example, students success center, SSS, library staffs, all of them are opened hands to help students, adding to their instructors. In addition, to teansfer from there to a four years college is easy and excited because the college books for the campus visite and the trip helps to interacte with other students.
This is my second term at Indian Hills. My first term I took three classes and this term I am taking four. I have noticed that some teachers are a lot more helpful than others. The financial aid department is kind of a hot mess. One day you will get told one thing, the next day someone completely different than the first. Academic advising is the same way. I made an appointment to explore my options if I wanted to transfer to a four year university and the adviser I had my appointment with wasn't very helpful at all. I feel that I ended up leaving with more questions than answers. Other all, Indian Hills is an OK college.
