This would be the Biggest Hole in theSuper BrilliantFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
This would be the Biggest Hole in the wall....The reason why in your housing contract you can not bring your own pet, that is because here at Iowa Western - you Automatically get a free Rat/Mouse. in between the dirty floors, no hot water. the elevators and Pipes are always breaking.

When i first moved in I thought the dorms were made of Cheese, it looked green and Smelled like cheese too, turns out the whole place is made of Mold. to which you get to pay for the damage of it at the end of the semester.The Teachers and students were the only one's who actually seem to care.

This college is one joke, after another.Art & Design Department
This college is one joke, after another. the only thing good about the place is the students. the Housing department does not take care of anything. the housing is usually a garbage pit with mold and is unsafe. moving in/out, try the stairs, the elevators if not stuck will start smoking. the siding at last check on the suites were torn off in a lot of areas, nails were on the roof and shingles broken off. water pipes shake and break open. staff members are too drunk to do their jobs. half of them drive their 4 by 4's up hills side ways almost tipping over or do strange things like drive them into the water sprinklers completely soaking the whole cart.

The kind of fun the staff have planned for all students is usually clowns and children's games. as we all are/were adults.

the food in the college cafe has gotten much better, it used to be undercooked raw food now it is quite nice, the dishes were usually dirty, they are clean now.

Most teachers don't know how to use the Online campus system : ROC, which ROC is usually broken to most students and staff. but IT seems to think broken means it working right. so they won't fix it, and if you complain they show you that there are tons of errors but they think its normal.

Volunteering on this campus : it peasants work if your at the art center volunteering for the theater. they don't count you as a team member. and does not count as volunteering, it won't go on your record for volunteering and won't help get a job later on in pay for an education and only get ripped off here. you do get to make a lot of friends though.

This College needs to be renamed, Iowa westernArt & Design Department
This College needs to be renamed, Iowa western kindergarten Community College. this is no College, just a bunch of High School kid Jock filled students. the staff here is like a joke,they drive go cart like utility vehicls at top sppeed about 30 MPHwith out stopping almsot hitting people and cars or tipping over,the maintence crew is only good for waste. you could build a house with all the nails and screws they drop on the road, which puts every person at risk on the road.

if you have a problem they will look and say They dont see any problems even if its a major problem. if you have them fix it they get mad saying they have no time for this or that they hurt because its too much work.

the teachers give athletes the top grades and teachers let them skip classes.
the PC"s are like junk based, IT only updates them once per century. and you cant clear off any personal data. or staff will jump on you and tell you off. the PC's are insecure and unsafe. there is no privacy, and passwords are easily handed out to students or anyone who uses them.

in the dorms, you get ripped off. its $4500 a semester and there is no heat, only A/C 24/7. temps range from 65 degrees F to 70 Degrees F. the campus does not have anyone hired on weekends and the place is a real garbage dump. bags of garbage in the halls, elevators,stairs. washing clothes is even more fun. when people abuse your clothes by placing stuff in them and etc. The haunta virus might be lurking here and the staff would rather party.

the Pipes freeze on this campus and the staff call it a act of god. even though they are the ones who burst the pipes.

thefts, assaults here happen all the time.the staff puts a note on the door saying it happened. IWCC does not use called text alert's. most students I know precive this campus as a very unsafe campus to be at. the students are just like prostitutes, that is basically what you can read on most dorm room outer doors.

this is a children's playground, all the staff do here is build childish games and events. are there any adults here to run this campus? someone please tell me this!
