I think Des Moines Area Community College is a great school to get a combination between working and going to school. There are many opportunities to take advantage of, and the professors seemed lovely. Through my experience, the school helps you find a plan once you obtain a degree, as well as helping you further your education at a higher-level college.
The professors have regular office hours, are responsive to emails, and ask if we have questions in class. They are available to help support our learning and give us case studies to help develop our critical thinking. The clinical experiences and simulations help prepare us to be great nurses. NCLEX pass rates for DMACC are excellent!
I like it here. Most teachers are family. the school is very nice. The class is not so expensive. The food is ok. I love the library. study are very behaved. This is a good school for two years of college. If you thinking want to get to a college that not so expensive. This school is for you.
I enjoy my experience at Des Moines Area Community College. I like where I like and I typically enjoy my classes. I have struggled with professors in the past but that was not a big deal. For the prices I pay at Des Moines Area Community College, the quality of the education I receive is outstanding.

If I could go back now, I would tell myself to work much harder than I did in high school. I would tell myself that growing up and going to college is not as fightening as it may seem. I know now that leaving my friends and going our seperate ways is not the end of the world. I would make sure to tell myself that it will be much easier to keep my grades up now rather than trying to build them back up later on.
Not overly talkative., most just go to class, sit in class, then leave campus.
Peopl who like smaller classes and lower tution should attend this school.
Des Moines Area Community College is known for its diversity and also how inexpensive college could be. DMACC offers many majors and provides quality education for the surrounding communities. DMACC offers an opportunity for many to start an education no matter what your education background is. I know that people who never recieved a high school diploma has an ability to either recieve a GED or adult high school diploma at DMACC. Without that ability I could see how some people would be discourage to attend college, however, DMACC does offer that chance to any.
Student services people aren't friendly at all, some teachers aren't up to the best standards, but overall, it's an okay school.
It a great 2 year school that you can get the same education in the fields offered as you would at a 4 year school. It is alot cheaper too.
The worst thing about this school is probably how others looks down on it. Others think that DMACC is a slacker school for people who aren't smart, therefore, students aren't proud to say they attend at DMACC.
I don't find that there is anything in particular to brag about. I am attending DMACC to raise my GPA before applying to the university I would really like to go to.
Pretty much was told everything that I needed to know.
Someone who is just trying to take easier classes.
The most popular group to get involved with at the Des Moines Area Community College is the Student Activities Council (SAC). Those who are involved in SAC not only get 1 credit per semester, but they also have a huge say in what activities go on at DMACC. Due to the fact that DMACC is not a university, there isn't a typical drinking/party scene on campus. While there are three different housing units on the Ankeny campus, it is really up to each individual how much partying you're involved with (just like in high school). For the most part, you will not be disturbed by any parties because they are usually taken off campus.
The stereotype of students at DMACC is that we are a bunch of extra poor students who can't afford to go to a university. This stereotype is completely inaccurate. Most students who go to DMACC are simply there because they are choosing to be wise with their money, or lack thereof. In reality, unless your parents are paying your way through college, you are going to be a broke college student no matter what school you attend. However, by attending DMACC, you have the opportunity to have a great first two years of college for a fraction of the cost. This will help you later on in life if you are looking to not acquire debt.
The most frustrating thing I find in my school is that is has many younger students who are there to get their degree, not as much there to learn and gain perspective on life and how the world works. It's frustrating to want more from these students and to be constantly let down, but I have to learn that you can only help people as much as they allow.
