Hills Fest: August 7, 2020

Due to the continued concern for the spread of COVID-19 amongst large gatherings, Indian Hills Community College has made the decision to cancel the annual Hills Fest event planned for Friday, August 7. 

Despite the cancellation of the live event, students who need assistance with completing the online application for admission, registering for courses, or filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can still meet virtually with an Indian Hills staff member. 

Joni Kelley, Executive Dean Enrollment Services & Registrar, stated, “We are disappointed that we won’t be able to have students on campus for Hills Fest, but we are still open and available to assist students in applying to Indian Hills, registering for classes or completing the FAFSA.  We look forward to serving as many students as possible in small groups, by phone or virtually via Zoom.” 

Members of the Indian Hills OneStop, Admissions, Advising, Educational Opportunity Center and Financial Aid offices are available to meet virtually or in-person from 7:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday-Thursday.  Students who would like to schedule a virtual or face-to-face meeting should call the OneStop at (641) 683-5262.


As with nearly everything these days, Hills Fest 2020 will look slightly different this year.  The annual event full of fun, food and all things Indian Hills will now focus on helping prospective students complete applications, apply for financial aid and enroll in Fall 2020 classes.  But don’t worry, it will also include food trucks and a little fun! All attendees will be entered into a drawing for 2 - $1,200 Admissions Scholarships!
