    The instructors are always willing to help you if you are willing to help yourself. Job placement is one subject Kirkwood is great at. They will help you write an incredible resume, help you find a job, and help you succeed, if you are willing.

    Kirkwood is a community college so it is very cheap. It works out well to transfer to a four-year college. Your general education classes should be out of the way when you transfer. This saves you a lot of money.

    Kirkwoods a lot cheaper then a four year college and you complete at least two years before having to transfer. you can also get scholarships from activities like Phi Thetta Kappa, theater and sports.
