I love the campus. NICC is compact, easy to navigate, and very organized. The staff is friendly and helpful. Most of the educators are exceptional, and I feel like my first degree at NICC was a worth while investment in my career. The parking lot is very large, but during busy spouts finding a parking place is difficult. The college does not offer housing. The intermural sports are scarce, but the social activities are very abundant. NICC offers a lot of great opportunities by having different recruiters visit the campus, and by offering a free learning center for enrolled students.

I have had an excellent professor who is extremely patient and makes sure we have to opportunity to ask question if we are feeling lost. The campus is welcoming and easy to navigate. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Overall I'm excited to continue my education here!
Northeast Iowa community college is a very helpful starter college. I am getting my AA for much cheaper than other colleges, and they are helping me tremendously with transferring on to another school.
