Kirkwood Community College Reviews
Kirkwood is a great place for anyone looking to pay for college for less. The professors are excellent, interested in actually teaching the class, and are always willing to help you learn. Advisors are kind want to assist with practically everything in your life! The school is incredibly diverse when it comes to race and age and prides itself on that. Kirkwood collaborates with UoI often which means you get a lot of university things for community college price. The only downsides are that there are not a lot of clubs or student life, and that classes can be split between the CR and IC campus which, depending on your degree/class interests, can be annoying. Otherwise, this school is fantastic for anyone looking for a cheaper and shorter route through college.
Overall I liked my experience here. I met many great students and teachers. A majority of the teachers are will to meet with students outside of class to help them. I found that this school gave me the assistance I needed in class. I am sad that this is only a two year school because they have amazing staff and facilities. The education is very affordable and they offer so many scholarships, that most students leave after two years with no college debt!
Kirkwood Community College is definitely one of the most affordable colleges in the state of Iowa. This means that education can and will be more accessible to many people, which is important for our society. I think that Kirkwood Community College is great because there are smaller class sizes so you feel as though you aren't one out of a hundred people sitting in a lecture hall. Buildings also aren't very spread out, which means that students can easily walk to different classes using the provided sidewalks.
