Southwestern Oregon Community College is a public, 2-year institution established in Coos Bay, with a satellite location in Brookings. Founded in 1961, SOCC was Oregon’s first community college, and it now serves a student population of over 14,000. SOCC offers over 80 academic programs, which include subjects such as Public Safety, Culinary & Baking, Education, and more. Students can also earn credit hours for prior learning and life experience.
The atmosphere and scenery is different than other college I had visited. It keeps me both relaxed and focused on my academics. I am very happy I choice Southwestern Oregon Community College to continue my education.

SOCC has a very large and inviting campus for being located in such a small town.
Another perk, is that SOCC offers student housing that happens to be relatively inexpensive. SOCC thrives on their sports programs, and lucky for them (and both present and future students) Swimming has been added to their sports programs as of this academic year.
