College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: At first it seems like a lot, and after you end up eating the same things over and over again, and the only thing open late night is McDonald's which isn't the healthiest choice.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Like said before, the strictness is more lenient towards the minor issues rather than the bigger ones.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a fan of parties, so i stay indoors when they are happening.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had to deal with a lot of issues with my finical aid at the end of the first semester, and it was quite a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some of the food is decent, like the grilled cheese with chicken and bacon is very good, however there is some food that after eating it, you feel bait nauseous.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the non important rules are too heavily enforced rather than the more important ones, ex: I got in trouble once for playing a jelly bean game (Bean Boozled) with friends for being too loud.

Off-Campus Dining: The few places we have are good but can get old

Administration: It is good when it needs to be

3 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food selection is amazing

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think this school is great and the campus is beautiful

Party Scene: The party scene at Iona college is not very large. There are parties here and there that are off campus and I believe that they do help the students to connect, but they are not very often or are not heard of by many people. I believe that the party scene has the same impact that it will have on any other school. Students go out to have fun for a night and may make a couple friends, but there really is no ultimate impact.

Campus Food: The food at Iona College, I believe has more of a variety than you find at most colleges, but often times it is not cooked to the best quality. Our campus has two dining halls so a person can choose to eat at either at almost any time. At both cafeterias the variety of foods a person can select from are unlimited. The options range from grilled cheese and burgers to wings and ribs. There are also different food spots where you can get just pizza and pasta at one or just salads at another. The food offered is healthy as well, there are salad bars as well as sushi bars and you can also make your own sandwich. Lastly there is a new meal served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that is different each day of the week. The dining are very convenient and may be one of the better ones a person will find in a college campus.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Iona college is very great. The atmosphere is very friendly and it is very diverse. The dorm rooms that I currently live in, I believe are the nicest. Every one is close together making it easier to come together as a college community and the rooms are perfect for the freshmen to experience. Most dorm rooms have a double suite, giving each person the opportunity to make new friends as well as contain their own personal space. The first year, as a freshman a person cannot choose who they room with which is an excellent way to ensure students make new friends as well as stay connected with old ones. As a sophomore students may pick their own roommates, therefor the housing process is very unique, but also convenient. As a college student myself I believe everyone should at least dorm one year because it helps you connect with the students and get involved with campus life.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are resources that are available for students who are the victim of sexual assault

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are hardly any parties

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are okay the bathrooms could be refurbished a little though

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I don't really like the people here except for the one's I hang out with of course. People seem like either they hate you or they really like you

4 College Freshman

Administration: The faculty and teachers are nice of course there are going to be those you like and those you dislike. But due to the low diversity there were not many protests or demonstrations at school which I did not like.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The best part of going to Iona is the small community you become a part of. There are so many benefits for students, due to the school's size and location. The small classroom sizes provide students with the opportunities to engage themselves in the classroom on a daily basis. Along with the chance to share personal thoughts in the classroom, students truly appreciate the professors they have had. What makes the professors so meaningful to them is the fact they actually know them by name and they truly believe in their immediate future upon graduating. Many students would choose to go to Iona again if they had a chance to do it over. This is not to say your four years as a Gael will be easy, as you are guaranteed to face many challenges of all sizes, but what makes Iona so special is the community that is there to support you.

If you are thinking about coming to Iona, be sure to be ready to do big things. Although the community and location are ideal, you will have to work. The opportunity for growth through student organizations on campus and the fact that New York City is nearby helps graduating students as they look to move on after college. Your experience at Iona is really judged by how willing you are to do your part. Iona may be the perfect fit for you if you do not want to feel out of place at a big school and are looking to improve or even challenge yourself as an individual.
