Am learning a lot
The professors actually care about the students in their classes and often give out their personal cell numbers so students can call them. Also, smaller class sizes make one-on-one time more available.
Am enjoying being here
There are SO many fun on and off campus events to go to! There are BBQs, Karaoke, discounted or free movie showings, inflatables, root beer floats, and so much more!
Bang for the buck
Iowa Central is very well priced compared to other colleges. Even if you live on campus, you will pay much less for much more.

Tips for prospective students
how many times has someone told you to stay on task and get your homework done? well, it still holds true. like any other school, you have homework and tests, quizzes and research papers. what makes the difference between a failing grade and an a+ is how much effort you put into it. iowa central has many opportunities that you can make use of, including tutors, test help, and extended lab hours.
Academic Rigor

What to do for fun

Bang for the buck
i'm getting three years of college (two a.a.s's and one a.a) for the price of one year at a state institution. i can't complain about the cost of tuition. not to mention, iowa central offers many other amenities for its students.
