What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently enrolled in Des Moines Area Community College. I find the environment and students to be extremely friendly. The teachers make the classes entertaining, its not your classical sit down and receive a lecture type of class. DMACC does a fantastic job by providing their students with tools to succeed in their career choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am extremely glad I chose DMACC versus a 4 year college in my state. The smaller class sizes make it so much easier to talk to your instructor about things one on one. The small campus feels like home and makes it easy to make friends. This may be a community college but there are so many degree options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Des Moines Area Community College has given me a great opportunity to explore future options for a career. The college is strategically set up with many locations throughout Iowa to provide a well-rounded college education to students. My experience at this college has credited me with the knowledge of aspects in Mathematics, Science, Sociology, and other courses. The housing locations that are positioned by the campuses are well maintained and provide a safe distance for commute to classes. Also, there have recently been great additions to the food and activity centers that have easy access for students to use! One aspect of the college I have particularly enjoyed is that the class sizes make for a one-on-one interaction with instructors. The instructors are super friendly and very helpful when questions arise about an assignment or activity. I believe it is important to have a plethora of degree and program options open like DMACC. Students are very engaged in this type of setup because college is one of the last steps we take before our career. Having room to explore your options with a wide program range is the best way to go! Overall, I would say this college and the staff does its best to ensure a quality education in preparing students for the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very business like. Everyone is there for an education to either transfer to another college or to fulfill there graduation requirements. There big age differences between classmates. It’s a good step into a college atmosphere. Around 4-5 classes a semester will be around 2000 a semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my experience at DMACC has been gleamingly positive. My professors are competent, and always willing to assists and coordinate on projects. Class sizes are manageable; and curriculum is challenging without being too arduous. The resources for students requiring remediation, extra academic help, or tutoring are comprehensive, vast, and free. DMACC also provides fantastic support to their STEM and medicine programs. DMACC offers fantastic job opportunities and a wonderful collection of extracurricular and volunteer activities. There is an essential focus on diversity here at DMACC that is wonderful for minority students. By the same token, differently abled and non-traditional students are provided a true home for their higher education here. DMACC’s focus on those with low-income is also much appreciated for students that operate on grants or loans. Students that may not be of the largest financial means are always made to feel at home with DMACC offering free financial aid counseling and hosting food drives for underprivileged students. Attending DMACC is also very cost efficient. The fees, books, and tuition are all exceedingly reasonable in price. But, more than being low-cost, they are high-value! DMACC has many benefits for full-time students as well. Full time students have access to a comprehensive gym and wellness center, complete with an aquatic rehab area. My experience at DMACC has been absolutely great. And I look forward to completing my associate’s through this fine organization. I would recommend DMACC to anyone seeking to attain their associates degree. As DMACC is a perfect way to plan for you future. Affordable costs, high value, great culture, and an opportunity to transfer to four-year institutions. What’s not to love?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just love the friendly atmosphere. Due to the fact that there are no classes that exceed 30 or so students, almost everyone knows each other and gets along. The teachers are friendly and almost always available for help. They also are accommodating to situations that just happen in life. We also have multiple different sources for getting help outside of the teachers including the academic achievement center and library. The coaches for the sports teams are also very academically aware. They want their players to do well in school and in life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

DMACC is a great college. I feel as if I am receiving an awesome education, with readily available resources for almost anything. The class sizes are not too big or too small, the professors are always there to help, and I have built some great friendships with my classmates. I have three semesters left before I transfer, and I feel totally prepared for everything coming my way. Go Bears!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy it, feels a lot like high school though. People pretty much show up for classes and then leave after. There is not much of a social scene and there are no parties because most people live with there parents still. You will learn a lot and the teachers are very interactive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that it is very good in terms of community colleges. However since it is a community college it is not going to have things that big universities have like sororities, sports teams, or music plays. For me I enjoy the small class sizes so this fits me perfectly and allows a lot more interactions personally with your instructors that I really enjoy. However, even outside of class my instructors have office hours almost every day that I can go to if I need help. Along with this there are also tutors available that are very good at helping you with your classes when you need it. Overall I think that DMACC is a very good college that just is missing some of the things that big universities are, but is still good as it is.
