Those efforts have included trumpeter swan rehabilitation working with Department of Natural Resources biologists. “Because of Hawkeye I have a well-developed resume, with certifications and experience.” Most in-person classes average about 14 students, giving instructors the opportunity to not only know you by name, but know your goals, your struggles, and how to help you succeed. “You don’t feel like a number, you feel like somebody,” said Sydney Mahoney, a graduate of the Human Resource Management program. “I’ve made a lot of friends in my program because it’s a small group. Being able to go to them for anything is great - you get lifelong friends here.” For many students, Hawkeye is the local, affordable stepping stone to a four-year degree. Beginning the bachelor’s degree journey at Hawkeye lets students explore career paths, tackle general education courses, and avoid a university’s big classes and big price tag. “My brother recommended Hawkeye because of the direct transfer partnership with UNI,” said Allyssa Stephens, a 2019 Liberal Arts Transfer graduate from Des Moines. “The class sizes were right for me, the campus size was right for me - it’s a benefit in time and money. It’s just generally a good fit.” Hawkeye has transfer partnerships with dozens of colleges and universities in the Midwest, including the University of Iowa, the University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University, and Upper Iowa University.
