Did learn a lot
Heartland helped me figure out what I wanted to major in. Some of the teachers are also employed at ISU so you know they are knowledgeable. Even the ones that aren't are really, really good at what they do. Each class I had turned out to be fun and a joy to go to while still learning things in the process!
Did enjoy being here
I really enjoyed my time at Heartland. I loved the feel that I felt when walking around campus. It has helped me tremendously in my academic life as well as my personal life. I know what I want to major in. It took me awhile but I'm glad that the teachers made each class inviting and fun. This helped me with my decision. The teachers are very kind and caring. The small class sizes made it really easy to approach my teachers if ever I needed help with anything. They were extremely accommodating to my needs and I felt they didn't just care about me as a student, but as a person as well! Most, if not all of my credits transferred to my 4 year school. (60ish). They are really good at transferring credits if you decide to go on to further your academic career!
Bang for the buck
Heartland is extremely low in regards to cost compared to a 4 year school that's for sure! However, This does not lessen its value as an academic institution. Some of Heartland's teacher are employed by ISU as well so I consider it to be a really good deal! It's kind of like going to a 4 year school and getting the education you would there but for way less money and in most cases, a smaller environment.
Tips for prospective students
I would highly recommend going to Heartland! Don't be afraid to approach your teachers as they are there to help YOU! It took me a long time to figure that out.
Great for these types of students
ANY! It's amazing to get your general education requirements out of the way. If you already know what you want to do if and when you decide to move on, that's even better!

Am learning a lot
I am able to get my general education classes taking care of and I learn a lot in each class. The classes are not huge which means that the professor is able to spend more time to get to know each student and they are able to help him or her more easily.
Am enjoying being here
Heartland has a very nice setting. There isn't too much going on, the classes are generally in one area so it means less walking and easier to get from class to class. People are very nice, both students and teachers.
Bang for the buck
The college gives a student the education he or she needs in order to go further in his or her education or to just further it from an high school education. This is also a great choice because it saves a college student so much money and they get the same education students at Universities get.
Tips for prospective students
My tip is to relax. College may be overwhelming at first. This is because the teachers at the beginning list the things that will get done in that class. Something to remember is that all those things is going to get done in 16 weeks not 4.
Great for these types of students
I think this college is great for any type of students. It's an easier transition from high school to college, it's a lot cheaper, and it gives a student the same great education.
