A dynamic metropolitan area of 105,000-plus residents, Sioux City is located on the banks of the Missouri River where Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota meet. It's a larger community that maintains a "small town" feel, so don't be surprised when people look you in the eye or say "hello" on the street. You'll also appreciate the city's low crime rates, the area's moderate cost of living, and Midwestern hospitality.

The city features respected businesses and service agencies, a top-notch health care community, an outstanding educational system, and much more. Our students enjoy a range of internships and part-time jobs from which to choose — some of which lead to full-time career opportunities!
