Iowa Central is a comfortable campus full of friendly helpful people! I came here without a single clue as to what I wanted to do besides achieve my AA degree. Now after two years here, I’ve found my major, a plethora of friends and colleagues, and a great number of references! All of my instructors have always been eager to help me whenever I approached them and if I ever needed to talk with an advisor, they always had time to talk with me to help me figure out what came next in my educational journey! I loved my time here and will miss it greatly!

Iowa Central is overall a decent school. As far as community colleges go, I would say it is best in the state. It has more athletics and performing arts and better student life than any other college. There are always activities and such going on, and you actually feel a connection to this place that you wouldn't get at any other community college. Although, the food is not very good. It makes me feel sick every time I eat there. Some of the professors are terrible, too. Some have a different primary job and does not know how to teach. I took a class last semester and didn't learn a single thing. All we did was group discussion all the time, and half the time it wasn't even related to the class at all. Wish I could get my money back for that one. A real waste. Other than that, there are actually some really good professors who actually care about whether you succeed in their class.
I love the welcoming community and the availability of staff to help with any of you needs and concerns. Dorms are awesome! Campus is safe and secure, they always have events going on so you can be involved, mingle and meet new people. They have great sports programs available for those that are interested.
