    Campus Safety

    Southwestern is really safe. There wasn't one unsafe incident while I was there.

    What to do for fun

    I didn't spend a lot of time on campus, so I'm not sure what there is to do for fun.

    Food and Dining

    I never ate in the dining center, so I don't know what it was like.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't live in a dorm, so I don't know what dorm life is like.

    Academic Rigor

    A lot depends on what classes you take. Some classes are more challenging, while others are not challenging at all. Ask your adviser about it, and they should be able to help you get classes of the difficulty you want.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are paying attention when you are setting up your schedule. I ended up in a math class that I took my freshman year of high school because I didn't ask what the course covered. Be sure to ask questions about your schedule!

    Southwestern is really small compared to other colleges. For a liberal arts degree, there is one instructional building. If you're looking for a small college, SWCC is a good choice for you.

    Dorm Life

    I loved the dorms! It was an apt with 4 bedrooms so everyone had their own! Plus there was 2 bathrooms! It was def worth it to pay the extra!

    Swcc is a good school teachers are great and so are the students. The town is too small for my taste. But even after the tornado we are back to school in less than 2 days, its a great place to be!

    I've never heard of a fight going down here, Although there was a tornado a few weeks ago, the dorms were effected, but no one was killed or even severely injured

    All sorts, there's even an excellent music program (primarily jazz) here, that is the program I am enrolled in, and I have grown very much from it

    What to do for fun

    Hang out, check out small town creston, go fishing, hang out at the restaurants.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just remember, you're paying only around 2000-4000 dollars to attend here, that's extremely cheap. Take as much advantage over it as possible, and make sure you don't end up wasting all that money for nothing

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest trying to sign up for that TRiO program. They are very helpful and provide a lot of resources. They have anything from tutoring and mentoring, to transfer help. Become involved in the school, but also know you limits. Do not become so busy that you do not have time to do well in your classes.

    Southwestern Community College is a wonderful community college. It has many opportunities available for students. They try very hard to make it so you can succeed at their school.
