Kirkwood Community College Reviews
Review Kirkwood Community College
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.
Kirkwood has phenomenal instructors that are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach. They are interested in whether or not you are learning the material, and they are supportive of your life outside of school. The classes are interesting and challenging. You get such a good education for such an incredible price; it's a shame they don't offer 4 year degrees!
For being a 2 year community college Kirkwood is amazing! I attend the Iowa City campus, and have loved every moment of it. There can be some bumps in the road, but the faculty are all very friendly and personable. You have plenty of people you can ask for help! There are free tutoring services and we now have transfer agreements with not only The University of Iowa, but a newly established agreement with Mt. Mercy, and optimally many more to come in the future! I believe it is around 1/3 of the price of a class at the University and to be completely honest it will be a much better setting for those coming right from high school or have never left home before. The classes are smaller, and you have more of an opportunity to get to know your professors or ask them for help if you need to. We also have professors at Kirkwood that also teach at the University of Iowa, so they are definitely not lacking in employees with adequate credentials. I would definitely recommend this school.
