Iona College - Comments and Student Experiences|
Iona's social life is lacking, and Iona's Academic environment isn't warm. Iona isn't a close-knit community. There are nice people at Iona, and the food is good, but Iona is lacking in a college life. I can't afford to take out big student loans to attend Iona College. Sad to gave to write, but Iona isn't worth the money.
I learned the hard way. The last few weeks I have done extensive research on colleges. In the Spring, 2017, I wll enroll at a college - that is ranked on the affordable list, ranked as a Top College.
Iona College was a let down. I learned, while here, there is high employee turn-over, so many Professors are Adjuncts-not full-time, and I sensed,while here, staff are not happy.
Iona is just not managed effectively, and Iona is all about the Money. I'm writing to inform high school students to do homework and research, and don't base your decision on a college tour, open house, or samples of the food. Do detailed research-it's your money, and your time.
When you start attending, you learn Iona lacks cohesiveness.
Iona'a advisement is poor and unorganized. Iona's tutoring center is so understaffed, poorly maintained, and lacks management.
An Academic Learning Center, to me, should exude QUALITY and an enriching environment. Iona's Center is limited in academic support services and tutors,and
it lacks direction and a motivational learning atmosphere.
The college life at Iona is poor, academically and socially.
To me, Iona doesn't offer a quality Academic learning experience.
I'll be transferring, after this semester, to a University that made the Top 50 Colleges in NY-Iona didn't make the list.
Now, after being provided, with the opportunity, to see, first- hand, how Iona functions, I know why Iona didn't make the Top Best list. Iona's Administration needs to devise a plan to turn Iona around so it can provide Quality services to students. Iona sure charges you enough - to attend, and Iona should ensure student services are Bar-none. I was dismayed all- around with Iona's support services.
Iona cares about expanding with real estate and buildings, whiled Iona's educational support services, including Academic support, Student Advisement, and Career Advisement, are very poorly managed and understaffed.
Iona cares about MONEY - and charging big fees to ensure they exceed their budget and enrollment numbers, but Iona lost the main focus - of providing a quality education for all students.
Do your due diligence and ask questions. Iona also didn't make the list of affordable/quality colleges to attend.
