What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
Southwest Tennessee Community College is a campus that feels like home away from home with great leadership and one on one tutoring, Southwest has made my 2-year degree easier to obtain then I could have ever imagined. With several classes and majors to choose from and staff, tutor and mentor availability, I would recommend that all 2-year degree seeking students living in Tennessee consider this school to create a firm foundation with unlimited options and careers for their success in higher education. Southwest, in my opinion, is rated ten out of ten and would love to refer anyone with the mindset of success, leadership and scholar to attend.
