I was attending DMACC for paramedics and the instructor there was one of the least helpful teachers I have ever had the privilege to know. He taught everything from a power point that he would just read off of word for word, which was straight out of our book that I was already reading. I feel it was not enough knowledge for the field I was wanting to go into. Which heavily impacted my decision to transfer schools.
I've had a very good experience at IWCC! The people are great, and whenever I have any questions, about anything, someone have been there to help. My financial advisor has been very helpful also. I have been doing online classes but I am very excited to start a class on campus!
The class sizes and the interaction with the professors is one of my favorite aspects of Iowa Western. The classes that i have been in are small. The range of students have been about 15-30, which makes it easy to do group activities in class. The teachers make time in class and in their spare time to meet with students and help students to the best of their ability. I have never had a teacher turn me away when asking for help, they want all of the students succeed and remember all the students personally.
