What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think that NCC is a great college to start out at. I think that their automotive, powerline and nursing programs are the strongest, but since I was only taking generals, I feel like I didn't see the best sides of NCC. Regardless, I am very glad that I started at NCC, I feel I got a good education at an even better cost.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Northwest Iowa community college is an affordable great place to go to advance yourself in a career. It has a great campus culture, people are easy to get along with and everything is close together. There is a weight room, walking track and basketball court. Perfect for the occasional exercise some want to do. The food is great because its fresh and not loaded down with grease. They offer on campus housing and its apartment style. I haven't stayed in them, but they looked very up to date and clean. The instructors are great because you can call or email them when ever you have a question. It helps that the class sizes are small, because you get more one on one time. The one on one time helps drastically when you're stuck on a question and need help. Overall NCC is a great school and the town it is in is pretty great as well. close knit and low risk of danger. Perfect for anyone looking for the small town feel and saftey.

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

As a non-traditional student, this is a fantastic question! I would advise myself to consider all the possiblities and career choices that are available. Attending a two-year college, such as NCC, allows you to complete a two-year degree while exploring possible careers. You can then transfer to a four-college if that is your goal. BUT while attending NCC you can experience college life, which can teach you so much about life, that is not in a textbook! I would also advise myself "Don't settle!". Try to figure out what you want out of life and go for it. You can reward yourself with an education and a career but it doesn't stop there. You can continue or you can go back later and life for a new career and education opportunities available at two-year college's such as NCC are absolutely great places to accomplish these goals. You can never learn too much whether it is from a textbook, in a hands-on lab setting, and interacting with other students. These are fabulous life experiences!! Make sure you grab as many of them as you can as you go through life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Definitely a student who has no desire to better themself! If you are attempting to "just be a number" at an institution you don't belong at NCC.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Northwest Iowa Community College is a small college. The staff, faculty and students interact extremely well. As a student you receive great interaction and feel like you "belong". The cost of attending is NCC is economical therefore saving you money; especially if you intend to transfer to a four-year. NCC is a close-knit group and everyone who works at NCC wants a student to succeed and have a positive experience as a college student.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The school I chose to attend is best known for the quality of education that it provides. The faculty takes a personal interest in every student in and out of the classroom and even after graduation. The facilities are small, but well equipped and up-to-date. The college is well established in the community and has a great reputation for the quality education provided.

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

Hey, Steve, listen to me carefully. What is it that makes you get out of bed in the morning? What excites you? What I'm trying to say is,"What are you passionate about?" That is what you should do for a career. This is America, nail 2 pieces of wood together and someone will buy it. That means you can do whatever you want. If you are passionate about something and are motivated to work at it, you can make a carrer out of it. To be successful surround yourself with successful people. Do some research and find the best place to develop your passion. Now, do some more investigating; the "best place" might not be the "best place for you." What do you like? What makes you feel comfortable? Find a place that is appealing to you and you feel comfortable at from the beginning. Don't worry, you will find you niche. Next, when you get there don't waste time. Plan a schedule and stick to it. Schedule time for studying, sleeping, and of course fun. You could be receiving the best education available, but it isn't fun unless you are having fun. Be yourself.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Community college is a great place to, get ahead through jointly administered courses with a high school, or to start your education when you are unsure the direction you are taking. If you are positively sure and have a strong desire and motivation to study a very specific industry or subject matter, then I would direct you to someplace else. There are many private schools that focus on specific industries and have well developed connections and partnerships that provide cutting edge curricular opportunities. Universities also provide 4 year plus learning schedules that feed dirctly into industry.
