I had an amazing experience at Kirkwood Community College. Although it is a community college, the campus is bigger than most community colleges and the perfect size. The class sizes were small and support is always offered!

Good campus, fun environment, the staff is always friendly and willing to help. Great place to invest your money for a solid education.
I love the feel here! The teachers care deeply about their students and i feel like I learn great in their positive environment.
Kirkwood Community College is a great place to start your post-high school academics. The campus is located in a more rural part of Cedar Rapids where there is not much traffic and is easy to get to. The housing options are great as you do not live in dorm rooms or share a room; you live in an apartment with other Kirkwood students. The housings are also within walking distance of the campus. In addition to this, the actual classes are amazing. There are no lectures halls and all the classes tend to be small and intimate, allowing students to have a very personalized experience. Overall, Kirkwood is a great college to go to whether you plan on transferring to another college, or are getting a certificate.
