What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion for being a community college North Iowa Community College is a good place to be. It is far enough out of town that we have space to do what we want but be able to go to school. The price is better than going to a private or state college and compared to other community colleges I feel safe.

I love NIACC! There is no other college I would prefer to attend! It's completely worth the hour drive every day! I love all my instructors! They are very committed to helping each and every student no matter what the have to do. Even if it means taking time out of school to help a student.

North Iowa Area Community College has been good to me in the aspect of working with me when life situations got in the way. They not only worked with me when I had to drop out of classes but they have given me a second chance which I am very grateful for!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC, as it is commonly referred to), has a great academic reputation, number 14 in the nation for community colleges in fact! They also have wonderful and knowledgeable instructors for the most part. The only down-side really that matters though, is that the other employees, such as those in administration, are very unfriendly and sometimes even belittling. It's truly a shame to have a counselor / adviser who honestly doesn't want to be there, and who gets irritated when asked for advice, while openly complaining. However; if a student is willing to learn, and make the most of their time at NIACC, it is a wonderful and affordable stepping-stone in the path to a higher education, and I truly am happy to have spent my first two years of college there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NIACC is a terrific community college. The class sizes are small. The tuition is very affordable. Nice campus. You get to know the professors and other students. NIACC is a great place to start your college education. You won't go broke the first two years of college and also get to mature before moving on to perhaps a big university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

North Iowa Area Community College is a great place to get started on your college adventure. It's not too big but there are still things to do and people to meet. The awesome thing about being in a small school is that you get to know everyone really well, including your professors. NIACC professors are super awesome and are always willing to help you succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of NIACC is that it's a very safe community to live near. My fellow classmates and professors and other staff are very polite to one another. Help is always offered to those who need it. It's a great place to start out before going to a 4 year college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending NIACC. It was easy to meet and work with a guidance counselor, and I feel relieved knowing that I am taking the right classes to get me a degree in early childhood education. I have a handicap, so I find it a smooth transition to commute from home to college every day. All the professors are very professional, helpful, and accepting when it comes to understanding and aiding me through disability services. Overall, NIACC is a wonderful college to start out with. I will definitely recommend attending school here to my younger siblings and friends!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

My school has many students from different backgrounds, including international students, and nontraditional students that are going back to school. The professors are willing to spend time with you to make sure you understand the content because they care about their students and will continue to talk to you in the halls, even whne you are no longer in their class.

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

I would tell myself to make friends early, especially ones you can study with. After I made new friends and we began studying together, the nursing program became a little easier. It was still tough but we support each other and help each other learn the topics at hand. I think that has been what has been the most beneficial to me. I would also tell myself to apply for more scholarships. Receiving some scholarships really makes it easier on you when you don't have to worry about working to pay for school and you can't receive any if you don't apply.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants to further their education should attend this school. It doesn't matter your age, race, religion, or economic status. Everyone is very welcoming and willing to help you.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

NIACC was the starting point for me, and it will be one that will help me through my life. I would not change this decision for the world, being that this school was one that will help me on my journey through college to get my degree.

Describe the students at your school.

It feels like the same as high school, just with more people, bigger settings, and so much more to learn.

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

"Hold on!!" "Slow down!!", "You have more time then you think!", "Life is to short to be worrying about things like college." , I would scream at myself. I believed that when I left high school, I would go strait to a four year college, no exeptions. When the time came, though, I turned into a complete mess. I didn't have anything I could work with, and I didn't know where I was going. That is when I decided to go to North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC for short). I don't regret it, but I wish that I would have calmed down in high school, I could of figured out what I was doing with college. Even so, NIACC was still a great college and I made the right decision to stick with a two year college first. If I told my high school self to calm down and breath, life might be different, and I could of started college with a clear mind, instead of the jumbled up mess that became my first year of college.
