Very helpful teachers that really want you to succeed, that greet you in the hallways, and are always able to be contacted digitally, even on weekends. The school also has a newly built campus, and an especially nice student activity center and cafeteria. The food is also really good for a smaller school such as this. Athletic teams are enjoyable to watch, especially the men's soccer team that always makes it to the national tournament year after year.

I started at Marshalltown community college right out of highschool. It is a very good school and the teachers are very helpful! The class room atmosphere is awesome, its a good place to learn at and plenty of people to study with and ask for help. There are plenty of different places to study within the school area. It is easy to navigate through and it you don't know your way there is plenty of help throughout the district.
I’m an international student from Curaçao that is currently attending Marshalltown Community College. This is my sophomore year and my second year here in the United States. As an international student it was kind fo scary coming to a college in the United States but the instructors have made my experience here very fun and easy. I never had to struggle with finding anything here at the college everyone was/is always there to help you out. I live on campus and it’s wonderfull, I feel safe and the supervisors are doing a job by making sure you enjoy living on campus. I will recommend other students from all over the world to attend Marshalltown Community College, the college is very diverse and will give you a great service.
