My experience at NIACC was absolutely amazing and unforgettable. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to be apart of the NIACC Student Ambassadors Club. Through this opportunity, I was able to meet many new friends. There are also many adult mentors that work all around campus that are huge role models to myself and many other NIACC students. The instructors are some of the best I have ever had. They care about their students, wanting to meet and get to know each and every student as they spend the semester with them. Also, the instructors are always looking for ways to improve their curriculum so all of their students succeed. NIACC is a great place for anyone. There are so many options students may take and proudly, NIACC is willing to step out of their way to make each individual feel they are getting the best education they can.

My experience at Niacc has been amazing, being international is always hard but here they made me feel welcome. There are so many different sporting activities and schooling event, you never get bored. You get to meet so many other international students and learn about their background. They offer tutors which has helped me a lot and I would highly recommend using these.
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.
