The Student Center is the hub for student life on campus, whether students are looking for a quiet room to study, or well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of college life. With cozy fireplaces and comfortable seating, the Student Center provides students with the perfect space to unwind and replenish.
Giving students free access to advanced technology is a priority at Iowa Western. You won’t find rows and rows of bookshelves in our library. What you will find are rows and rows of computers, and a collection of netbooks you can check out to use anywhere on campus. This means you’ll have access to the more than 400,000 digital documents and media resources available anywhere, anytime.
We built the Cyber Library knowing that our students needed a comfortable place to study and hangout. That’s why you’ll find cushioned seats and lounge tables to relax by yourself or with friends. Students looking for a quiet room to study or work on a group project can reserve one of the private study rooms.
Student Life Center
We help students grow. Education goes beyond the classroom; it includes things like student clubs, government, leadership activities, service-learning projects, and even intramurals. These experiences help you develop the skills you'll need when you leave Iowa Western, like leadership, decision-making, and communication. Our students spend a lot of time with us, and we’re committed to making their experiences at Iowa Western ones to remember.
We’ve made getting involved on campus easy; just stop in to the Student Life Center and ask. While you’re there, challenge a friend to a foosball match, a game of pool, or a game on the PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii.
College bookstores are a necessity, considering most classes require textbooks, and books can be expensive. To help make paying for college easier, we offer used books and book rental options that can save students 50-75%.
Books are important, but at the College Store we keep the books off the shelves and behind the scenes to make room for things that college students need every day, like snacks, drinks, pens, paper, organizers, and of course, plenty of Reiver Gear. When you need a late night coffee fix or a new hoodie for the big game, the College Store is the place to go.
Students are our priority, and their needs are diverse. We offer counseling resources, disability services, free academic tutoring, assistance with college resources, and academic advising. All in one convenient location.
Let’s face it; college cafeteria food has earned a bad rep…but we’ve done something about that. At the Galley, you’ll find all the things you love every day like burgers, salads and soups, in addition to daily specials, made-to-order sandwiches, and pizzas fresh out of the brick oven. Our desserts are made in house every day. Need some ice cream with that? Our soft-serve ice cream machine allows you to create your own flavor combinations on the spot.
