  • One can live on or off campus. I lived off campus so I cannot elaborate on dorm life. I can elaborate on living off campus and that is a struggle…

    The food is pretty good. The lines are really long and the cafeteria gets crowded. The cooks sometimes are skimpy with the food.

    Southwest Tennesse Community College has a cafeteria on site and has an open kitchen for breakfast and lunch. Also, there is about four or five resaurants including McDonald's, Tasty Sub, Dominos Pizza, Burger King and Arby's. I love to go to the cafeteria on taco Thursdays because you can eat like a pig for about five bucks off of one plate. Southwest Tennessee Community College has employed very good chefs and workers and these ladies and gentlemen grow on you very easily. I love the whole atmosphere of the cafeteria as well as the dining hall where you can be yourself and no one will complain! There is also snack machines and soda machines throughout every building so it is easy to have a bite to eat almost anywhere on campus.

    I enjoy the Dining at Southwest. The dining area you have vending machines with reasonable prices. In the dining area you can meet you with class mates after or before class to discuss work. Rating is a 6.

    Phi Theta Kappa is the best choice that I have made since I have been enrolled in school. I have been allotted numerous scholarship opportunities as well as being scouted by at least twenty universities across America. There is $37 billion dollars in scholarship opportunities awarded to those who qualify. As a member of Phi Theta Kappa, I have scholarships just for being a member because the Honor's Society is that of the elite of the student body. I have been inducted and received quite a few honors and awards at Southwest that I can present to recruiters as well as use for higher educational opportunities. I have a 4.0 GPA and have made it to the honor's awards ceremony as well as receiving the John P. Bacon award in addition to the induction to the Upsilon Delta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. PTK has made my transition to a university one-hundred times easier and now I have the confidence that I need to pursue higher education.
