I came to this site to review student
I came to this site to review student comments. I am currently enrolled at Iona College, but I will be leaving at the end of this semester. I will be attending a different college in the Fall, 2016, and wanted to read feedback from their students. I decided to look at the comments about Iona. Sadly, I have to agree with the negative comments.

For a business school, Iona is so poorly managed. Iona needs to restructure and hire staff that no how to Supervise and Manage - and Run a business. So many departments are so mismanaged, don't care, and don't have a clue.

Like others, I'm going to spend my $50,000 tuition money at a college that cares about student life and student success. The comments about MONEY are so important.

It's sad, because Iona's money, is going into Bricks not Brains. Iona doesn't have a college life or a business sense.

So many students - my friends at Iona, also feel the same way. There are nice people at Iona, who do care, but in my perception, they are burned out - working in a unstructured environment.

I hope Iona can fill the rooms in their current dorms, forget about the new ones.
Students can take virtual courses, courses at community colleges, and save so much money. I decided to enroll at Iona because I wanted to experience "COLLEGE LIFE". Life at Iona is more like High School sometimes Grammar school life. There is no life at Iona - social life - and, in some cases, academic life.

Question
I, like so many other posters, will beBrightUndecided
I, like so many other posters, will be leaving Iona College. I know, attending college, learning how to work independently, is very important, but why pay $50,000 a year in tuition for that? I wanted a college-life for my money, I wanted a college, that offers a strong academic environment, one that cares about students. Iona's priority, and only priority is MONEY. When the top Administrators don't care, it trickles down to all staff members. I also read - an article on Iona's ranking -and it's disgraceful, and the graduation rate is even more laughable. What is the President doing to increase retention and graduation? Answer: Not much. All he does is buy property and build dorms.

Who is going to want to enroll at a college with such low rates?
I'm getting out of Iona - asap - in a few weeks, and I can't wait. I made a mistake - I looked at the campus, and didn't look on the inside. Please ask questions.

Iona is mismanaged, "MOVE The World" - so many students are moving out - that's the only moving being done at Iona.If the President and his staff don't care, and their the leaders, morale will be terrible. Some staff members are so unfriendly and treat the students like they are an interruption, and we pay them. Iona won't be getting anymore of my money - for limited services.

Question
This is the worstPsychology
This is the worst possible school to attend, no matter how much money they give you. All aspects of this school are not only unsatisfactory, but also incompetent.
