List of the Smallest Colleges in Iowa

The big college experience is not for everyone. That's why Iowa is also home to a good number of small colleges, to accommodate students who prefer personalized attention from professors and advisors. The small college experience also gives students the opportunity to be more hands-on with their learning. Because the class sizes are so much smaller than those of bigger colleges, students really get to know one another on a personal level. If this all sounds appealing to you, proceed to browse through our list of the smallest colleges in Iowa to find your perfect fit.
