I would like to introduce myself. My name is Gage. A. Ruppe and I’m in the diesel program at Iowa Western Community College. I chose this college for a few reasons. My best friend’s dad went through this same program and through this education he has been able to provide very well for his family. He did push me to go to this college because it was good to him and that you learn the same stuff and so much more than paying for say like Wyo tech or UTI. I’ll admit I wasn't doing the best that I could the start of the school year but my teachers didn’t only come here to teach us and go home. They made it an effort to push me and motivate me to be the best in my class. If I ever need help on or need extra help in any class not just diesel they are there. I choose this college because it was close to home and it was affordable for me. I hope if you are reading this you too can make one of the best decisions in your life and your career.
