Great community college! This is my third semester attending the school, the professors are great, the campus is small and easy to get around. I absolutely love attending the school, they offer really great programs.
Review Iowa Western Community College
This college is great with their students. They have always been willing to help us out with anything and are always concerned for their students. The satellite centers are great too!
I grew up not far from Iowa Western, and was always told that it is where the "losers" go to. But I find that far from the truth. This school has pushed me academically in ways that I did not expect. I have also met many great people that are fast becoming life long friends. Overall, I would recommend Iowa Western to anyone.
