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.
Basically anyone can get accepted, which can be hard and upsetting for those people who are serious about school and who have had to work hard to get to where they are.
I am not happy about the walks of life that are attending Des Moines Area Community College. I noticed that many people are in school for what they call a payday and they don't always apply themselves. It seems like the counselors are not guiding these people toward an academic goal that is realistic. I had a youth in my Liberal Arts math class that didn't even pass pre-algebra in high school. I tutored him the best I could and when he told me that he was placed here at advice of academic advisor I was dumfounded.
The worst thing about my school would be the drive to the school from Ames to Boone that is 15 miles, but in the winter it's treacherous.
