When going to college I though it would be hard and difficult, but Iowa Western changed my mind. The staff here are so helpful its unrealistic! They made sure I was able to participate in the courses I needed to help me graduate! I graduated with my Associates in July and now am prepared to move on to a new school to finish out my bachelors! Would decently recommend for a starter school.

I’m a current student at IWCC and it has been pretty good, students and teachers have been great. The school campus is amazing, I’ve heard their food (buffet) is out of this league! Overall my experience has been really good and I wouldn’t like anything to change, if I’m being honest with you.
I would change nothing about this school, I had the best experience along with the most supportive and driven professors. They guided, supported and allowed me to pursue my true passions while I was there; from the advisors to my wonderful teachers they all assisted me in my journey to greater things. For example my science teacher that I had for 2 years put in so much effort to help me reach my educational capabilities and when I was struggling to solve a equation or concept he broke it down piece by piece to make sure I was solid on that particular topic. Overall this short experience here was not far from perfect and it was a well established community, I just wish it could expand so people would respect community colleges for more value.
