Most Helpful Review for Southwestern Michigan College

Do what the instructor asks, they usually aren't that hard on their students. The most important part of going to college is actually going to class. It's tempting to skip class because you won't get in trouble, but it will hurt you in the end.

    Southwestern Michigan College has amazing dorms, professors, and course options. The tuition is low compared to bigger colleges. Although it is a community college, it still has a university feel.

    OVERALL: NOT one of the best schools! (its the worst school I've attended & I've been to five different schools, with my overseas military background) The professors are unorganized, they aren't knowledgeable about the topic they are teaching, if you ask one too many questions.SMC does have a decent intramural program to get students involved with sports & activities. The dorms are nice & up to date.

    Will be attending SMC in the fall. I love everything about this school! The campus, programs, people, dorms are all a perfect fit for me AND it's not too far from home!

    SMC is all the schoolwork of college, less the excitement and partying. It is a great place to attend if you plan to transfer and move beyond SMC. It is cheap, and easy to stay focused.

    Southwestern Michigan College really cares about their students - they offer lots of fun activities. The classes are small, and the teachers care about their students and the advisers and beyond helpful! It is also cheap compared to larger universities, but that doesn't mean that the quality of education is less!

    Southwestern Michigan College is a low and affordable community college that is mainly focused on academics and not sports compared to many community colleges.

    Southwestern Michigan College is a great school to go to for a two or four year degree, some degrees available are from bigger name schools like Bethel and Ferris State University. SMC has a very fun and friendly environment and everyone always welcomes each other with a smile and a hello no matter where you are on campus. The faculty are also great, each and every teacher that I have had so far are willing to spend additional time with every student outside of the classroom setting.

    Better than a typical community college, but with that said, a lot of the teachers are not very good. Campus life is pretty fun but theyre strict on drinking.
