Lucas - 11/21/2023

I love Indian Hills Community College. My teachers never leave a question unanswered, and never make me feel as if I am asking a dumb question. They all have let me know their exact expectations for assignments. They are quick to reply to their email. One teacher in particular lets me hang out in her classroom between classes even though she does not have to. All of my teachers attempt to make the experience enjoyable. I like the small-campus feel. Overall, I like the college a lot.

Carlos - 09/22/2023

I think that Indian Hills Community College is an excellent school for people who aren't able to pay for expensive tuition at a university or people who want to continue their education. They offer a great class size for the most part and instructors are always fast with responses through email and are always willing to help you with anything.

Hunter - 06/21/2020

I love the environment and how well things are organized. I enjoy the health sciences building, the professors and students around make you feel welcomed and we all know we are all there to learn and move on with our careers. The professors and instructors are there to help us succeed and not out to get us.

Olivia - 03/12/2020

I wish the Centerville campus was bigger but Ottumwa campus is amazing! There is lots to do there and its lots more fun I think then Centerville campus. Plus Culinary is taken at Ottumwa campus and their food is AMAZING! In my opinion the teachers are very interactive with their students and try their very best to help us in everything we do and need. If there is info we dont know there is a center on both campuses to help us.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Hey Cortney! Wow, it's pretty crazy--you're a high school senior. As you get ready to enter college this fall, I just want to tell you that you can stop worrying so much. You're classes and teachers are an adjustment, but it's defintely not something you can't handle, and I know that for a fact! And don't think you're going to get there and not know a single person!! There are people from all over that you know, but lots of other people left to meet. And guess what?! Some of those people will become your best friends. So when August finally arrives and you get settled into your new room, don't worry about whether you'll find your classes on time, if the teachers are easy to get along with, or who you'll sit with in the cafeteria because everyone else is thinking the exact same thing. So just relax and enjoy your last few months of high school because college will work out great. You're gonna love it! Best of luck, Cortney 1-11-10

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    I think the best thing about my school is that it is small and more community oriented. The classes are also smaller so that instructors can have more time to help and be more acquainted with the students. It's a great please to start out if one is a bit nervous about the whole college experience because there is more one-on-one time with the insturctors.

  4. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish I had known that college isn't anything like high school. There isn't near as much pressure on academics, athletics, and you are free to be your own person with out having to conform to the preconceived idea of who you are supposed to be. There are lots of people and different types of people that you can befriend. There are so many more opportunities than high school so it just takes a matter time to find your own unique niche.
