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.
The campus is huge and super beautiful. Here at Iona you really feel at home and there are countless friends to meet. The student community is very friendly and I do not regret being a part of this wonderful institution. The courses are challenging but the resources offered at this college are top notch which makes it easier to handle classes. From the libraries to the computer rooms and even the student lounges, Iona offers many locations to make students feel comfortable while they work or study or even just want to hang out. Iona College has been a truly fun and intellectual experience for me to have.
