I have had an incredible experience while living in Sioux Center as an international student attending Dordt College. The welcoming community, antique, small town America feel allows students and the community to feel safe and welcomed within their daily tasks in the town.
The nightlife options in a small, rural town, always leave room for improvement, but the college definitely helps. The schools are great, the community is vibrantly alive, and it is overall a great place to live and work!
