North Iowa Area Community College was a wonderful experience. The professors were all very knowledgeable in their fields of study. Taking the time to learn all of their student by name; truly caring about each student and how they were doing in their classes. The dormitory had been rebuilt the previous year, so I was fortunate enough to be the first person to occupy my room. The faculty and students created a very welcoming environment. I would recommend North Iowa Area Community College to other as I am very happy with my overall experience.

What I like most about NIACC, is that wherever you go you will always see a friendly face. Whether it be on your way to class, in the dorms, or just out in the community. Its nice to see such different diversity in one area and everybody is getting involved in some activity, like sports, music, theater, volunteer groups, or just clubs at the college. You can meet tons of new people and make great friends. Overall NIACC has been a great experience so far and I can't wait to see what next year will bring.
The one thing I really enjoyed about going to North Iowa Area Community College, and also the reason why I reapplied to the school this year, was the fact that I was felt welcomed when I first arrived. Being an out-of-state student can be hard, especially when you don't have any family in the surrounding area. But the staff helped me feel like I belonged to a community that cared. An aspect of the college that I would change if I could would be the lack of involvement from the students. I noticed when I went there that no one truly participated in outside activities. Those activities are intended to help others make friends. It makes college a bit easier. But all in all, I loved my experience there, which is why I'm planning on going back.
