Iona College Reviews
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!
Through the few months I have attended Iona, I have been able to get a feel for what the next four years will be like. One thing that will catch one's eyes immediately is the campus. The campus is very well kept and has a mix of modern and neutral style architecture. The professors are serious about their work and are willing to help any student at any time. The only department I see a downside in would be the math department. From my experience and what I have heard, professors seem to be rude, intimidating, and not willing to help. Having difficulty is always normal and always available are tutors for any help with class work or extra help. Students at Iona are friendly, willing to talk and become friends. The only downside I have noticed with Iona so far is the diversity.
What I like about Iona is the resources that they have. The school always makes sure the textbooks for every subject are up to date and have current information. Also, how some teachers and staff members want to see you succeed. They offer extra help and they give lectures and advice on how to deal with the stress for the college atmosphere. How to deal with the stress, balance your time, and give tips on how to study your notes and write your notes for class.
