    Upper Iowa

    Yeah I know this is an Iowa State message board. However has anyone ever gone to Upper Iowa University in Des Moines. I am going to go back to school at the age of 35 and I am thinking this might be my best choice.
    how hard are the classes and so on? Thanks.

    I finished my last 2 years taking night classes at the Waterloo campus. Just like anywhere else, it depends what classes you take. Keep in mind that this was 18 years ago.

    I just finished my BS in Public Admin. with Upper Iowa in May at age 49. I went with Upper Iowa because they allowed me to transfer the most credits (87 in my case), so I only needed eleven classes to finish. I took one class per term, taking one term off to get a home repair project done and finished in two years. I took a couple online classes, one extended(through the mail) and the rest at either the WDM or Ankeny center depending on what I needed. The classes were good, some more challenging than others but all the instructors were currently working in the Public Admin field so had lots of practical experience. It took most all of my spare time but taking only one class at a time helped me get better grades. Hope this helps and good luck.
