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.

I am currently attending Kirkwood Community College. I enjoy the classes and the professors and have completed two successful years. Kirkwood has a great tutoring program. Kirkwood is a two-year comprehensive community college with the main campus located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa The campus includes a working farm, 27 buildings in addition to having has its own hotel. All buildings are very accessible and easy to get to your classes. Student parking is good also. I was pretty impressed by how large the campus was. It feels more like a university than a community college.The Kirkwood campus also have a variety of apartment buildings for student housing which is walking distance to the campus. The security is good for your safety.
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!
