I really liked the "family" atmosphere of this school. The size is perfect for more intimate class size. I really would like for more faculty members and other employees to be more concerned with students than with the money they make off of these students. It seems that they sell you something great and once you accept they don't care. Be careful about housing, they lie about availability and stick you in Eastchester Apartments, which have a mice problem and no Campus Security! I tried to get in touch with my child on a weekend and security said that you need to call the police department because there was no one to contact. Billing is very confusing. Food is terrible my child has stomach problems.

I love Iona! There are so many opportunities to take advantage of and all of the staff I've come in contact with is super friendly and understanding. There are opportunities to work on campus, clubs to participate in, nation and international mission trips each aimed at helping communities in different ways, a career building center, tutoring center, and more!
Iona College is a great, small, Catholic college in the New York Metro. The campus is beautiful, with 45 Acres for the students to explore and learn. The food is okay, normal cafeteria food, but there sometimes is a surprise in the dining hall. I've made a lot of friends here, and we are like a family. The professors are always there to help, and are very approachable. I am a Criminal Justice/History Major. I picked the school for it's famous Criminal Justice program. I believe that I will have the right materials for my career(s). I do however can say that Loftus Hall, the freshman resident hall, is outdated, and does need a renovation. Security is on another level, being the best I've ever seen. I do also believe that the heating and air conditioning in Loftus could be fixed, as well as a MAJOR renovation for the bathrooms in dorms.
Despite that, I really love being at Iona. I can stay here during the week, and be able to get home Via the Metro North and LIRR in 2 hours.
