DO NOT LIVE IN THE DORMS.Not so brightAccounting
DO NOT LIVE IN THE DORMS. There is nothing but drugs and blacks hitting on you constantly. I never really felt safe at night and regret ever attending this school. Mason City does not cater to the college life. Pick any other school, but this one.

I have transferred to niacc in order toQuite BrightCriminal
I have transferred to niacc in order to finish the classes needed for a criminal justice degree, definately not the smartest move because the so called teachers are the worst i've encounterd yet. they teach things that have and can be deemed as racial disharmony and have the nerve to get upset when students question their sources. most of these so called educators and staff members are only there to get a paycheck but don't want to do their jobs. i actually had a councelor tell me that he didn't have time to look over and change my class schedule but he has time to go to the bank and spend the money that i and other students have paid the school who in turn pays him. many of the councelors have no idea about the classes we need in order to graduate so we the students end up paying more money to the school for mistakes made by incompitent jack holes who make it hard for the very few good teachers who deserve to be respected. for the people out there who are thinking of coming to college in order to gain essential information for a degree, niacc is not the place. you would be better off learning from Sesame Street because the school and the staff are filled with immature children. if the president of the school did her job then maybe the underlings would follow.

The dorm life is suck!AverageBiology
The dorm life is suck! If you are going to live in the dorms, seek other community college. As other students mentioned, RA does not work at all. There is NO Rule in the dorms. They play music loudly, shout and sing over the night almost everyday.

The academics at NIACC are excellent. Not only the instructors but also the learning center stuff members and counselors are qualified.

So, I do not recommend NIACC unless you live in north central Iowa
