New Rochelle Community
Community Beyond the Campus
At Iona University, we believe in the power of community, and our community extends well beyond our campus.
Through multiple services and educational opportunities, Iona strives to be a good neighbor to our neighbors in New Rochelle and beyond.
From tutoring for students in grades K-8; exciting classes for adults who, like all Gaels, are life-long learners; access to our renowned art gallery; services offered through our Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic, and much more, Iona serves, strengthens and celebrates our community.
