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!

One of my teachers is listed on the Iowa Sexual Predators list and yet the college is not doing anything about this teacher. One shooting a few weeks ago and now windows were shot out. no one told me this until an RA told me.

Students here also get good grades for two semesters and then IWCC makes you take tests using ROC - Then they manually drop your grade to F on purpose.

the Tour this year of the Dorms looked good since you get to see the first apartment near the elevator, what you did not see is the damage done by burst pipes when the staff did not turn on the heat. there is tons of mold in the place and pipes that are damaged.eletrical outlests and light switches are not good at all, they have shorts and usually start to smoke if not get hot. a lot of times they just dont work.usually the PC are not updated or working properly. and IT forces students to use Google Chrome since the college is being paid to solicit the product. if you use another Browser, check your statements on how much you pay. It looks like they might be charging for non google services.

The college is feat in most places but the teachers fail you
Here, just use a computer on campus. All you can do is watch porn. The websites are often blocked and IT stares that your a cheater.

The pc's are never updated and give you the blue screen of death. iT is neglecting.
Roc the online campus system will give you a F. For taking tests/quizzes/homework. Most students experience this, and IT only gives wrongful help. The IT staff obviously only know two things to clear cache and the word "virus" but not knowing what a virus is, apparently.

Go up and talk with them and they will say that no one reported issues, even though probably 50% of the student body has reported issues.

The campus has had some shootings on campus with one person wounded. And windows on campus shot out. The staff is not replacing any of the windows shot out.

There is no heat during the winter or cold days. Which you pay for and instead have the pipes burst. The pipes burst over spring break and the college used an act of god as a reason not to pay for the damage the college insure the students and repay them.

Our light switches buzz and often don't work. Vandalism is a massive problem here. Walls are often punched through, ceiling tiles are often pulled down an broken, ... $3000 + books+ classes/fees = about $4000 A semester. This college is worth only 1/2 that if it's worth it at all. Don't expect much from here.
