This would be a great school for someone that likes a college right next to a state prison and for someone that wants to experience what it’s like being in the south side of ghetto Chicago. Other than that this school is probably not for you ..

Any college that would allow someone who sexually assaulted other high school athletes to play football is sick and needs new leadership, I wouldn't send my daughter to this school for any reason

Iowa central has the worst WiFi i have ever had in my life, honest to god the worst WiFi. The food is not great, has made me sick a couple of times, but the teachers at iowa central clearly care. It is a great school. But don't expect to have any fun gaming or watching videos because you can't even load Netflix on the WiFi without it buffering!

I dont like the coaching staff they try to humiliate players on the team. These kids pay for school and they should be able to enjoy every portion of their educational experience.
