One of the biggest assets of the College is the beauty of the campus. Year-round, Iona makes sure the grass is as green as it can be, and every little thing is tidy and in order. The buildings have consistency because most are brick buildings with some stone ones interspersed. Academic-wise, the school tries to keep pace in its field. In 2011, the business school added a trading floor for students, and recently, the school renovated Ryan Library. Support in these areas is not lacking at all, and students aren't disappointed.
The athletic center, however, is not up to par with larger schools. The basketball gym is at a high school level, and there is also no track for the nationally-ranked distance program. The fitness center for students is also small, and it could be a lot better considering how much Iona students pay in tuition. The lack of space at Iona does hurt the facilities, overall. Iona always has a new project on the table, but the only problem is that it takes time to finish the project. A student could go four years with no changes to the campus or not even get to experience a new project that is almost done. Even though athletic infrastructure is not up to par compared to other schools, it is a good sign that facilities for academics are excellent and are continuing to improve.
