On my first year at Southwestern College I was in the Transfer Institute Program, which is a one year program designed to increase the number of students transferring to a university. Being in the TI has been a awesome experience and also very helpful. The teachers that I had in the TI were the best teachers that I ever had, they really care about us and our progress.

    Its a solid college campus with a very welcoming vibe. There are many places to study including the library, which is a great quiet spot with computers you can use. There is also a mini arcade to help you unwind with friendly peers joining in.

    Southwestern College is pretty much what you should expect from a community college. The staff are always very helpful and are always willing to know you personally and help you with your goals. The students are not the brightest in the world, but they are there to learn.

    pretty decent community college very clean, professors and staff are pretty knowledgeable, offers a lot of different resources to help the students out. there are plentiful numbers of clubs and organizations you can join that is dedicated to your liking. i would rate the swc 8 out of 10 because parking can be quite a hassle to find especially in the mornings.

    Despite being a community college, this institution provides a plethora of resources to at reasonable costs. The student body and professors alike are very easy-going but extremely hard-working and determined. This school can help anybody jump-start their future, regardless if they are fresh out of high school or returning to school to start a new career.
