Iona College Reviews
Iona is a joke. Few professors actually care. Didn't prepare me for a thing. Finance office is just rude. If you live there you count....if not God help you. Athletes get away with everything because they are sports people. Hungover people everywhere but the school pretends not to see it. Drugs....everywhere. If you are a commuter, make sure you park in a different space in the garage every day because they do not like it if you park in the same one every day or close to it. Marked up my tires because I parked in one spot for two days straight. Computer science department is a joke. Avoid G. When you graduate, people actually ask you if you are an Idiot On North Avenue. That's the reputation the school has.
Iona College provided the best of both worlds, while having the proper personnel to make excelling in Finance a lot easier then most colleges. Having access to be able to go to the Financial District with little issues, while having a great campus where I can go and learn face to face with teachers, making learning enjoyable and easier to retain. The professors are all well established and well recognized in the finance world, providing great advice, mentor-ship, and resources to make networking and achieving that first step out of college attainable. Overall, Iona Colleges Business School is amazing, and their finance field is exactly what any top student needs to holistically tackle the workforce and I am so happy I was able to take part in such an fulfilling program.
The school was a great fit, but I don't think a small school is necessarily the best fit for every student. I loved it, but if I had to go back again I would study abroad. I have varied interests, so I might have double majored. Take advantage of everything that you can while you're in school. Colleges have tons of resources for students--everything from social programs to discounts/free arts & cultural opportunities to career help. Do as much as you can! Take the time to have fun!
