    SWIC is a good option for someone to just explore their interests and options without having to deal with high tuition. There are plenty of areas to explore including certificate programs. I really enjoyed my time here and have met some really awesome people.

    Southwestern Illinois College is a lot like high school without the reminder to finish your homework. I did not find it any more difficult than high school either. However it is a great school if you want to get your basics done.

    I've had some great teachers! Equipment within the classrooms could use an upgrade. The Granite City campus needs a cafeteria, or at least more veggie options.

    SWIC has a very nice approach to it. The teachers are very helpful and are all ears when it comes to answering questions. The tuition is cheap, and it saves people a lot of money for future college references.

    Going to SWIC to receive my Associate's Degree was the smartest decision I have made regarding my education. The class sizes are fairly small, and the teachers there genuinely care about their students- assuring they understand the information being presented to them. Because it is a junior college, the tuition rate is much cheaper than a four-year university; if that wasn't enough, Southwestern Illinois College offers TONS of scholarship opportunities for academic excellence and through the foundation office.

    As far as community colleges go Southwestern Illinois College, known as SWIC, is one of the better ones. The staff is knowledgeable and aren't afraid to push you to achieve your best. The small size allows for closer knit classrooms with more teacher to student interactions. Your not going to find the the crazy four year university experience, but you'll be able to earn a degree inexpensively from qualified teachers.
