What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
Southwest is not only a good choice, it's the best choice. They have at least several locations and they have a diverse student population which stands out as an example saying that everyone from whatever background, is welcome! Most people start off at community colleges and Southwest is one of the best college choices. Most graduates work for many health agencies and you could too if you take the chance!
Natashia from Byhalia, MS
Get yourself into high gear and pass all of your classes the first time so you do not have repeat a course that financial aid may not cover. Get involved in the school and with community and through volunteer work. Keep your GPA high so more opportunities will be awarded to you and the possibility of special higher educational scholarships as well as financial opportutnities will arise. It is great to have fun, meet new people and hang out however; like high school, not everyone you hang out with wants to see you succeed. Be well-prepared and do not waste time. Also, take your required General Education credits here instead of at a university because there is a transfer program that will save you over $20,000 dollars compared to the university.

My tip for any prospective students would be to work hard and put in the effort that you would want your loved one to put in for you.
Jabaree from Memphis, TN
Take notes, get to class on time and communicate with your professors.

Wear comfortable shoes. The parking lots are a 10 minute walk from the school.
Kenia from Memphis, TN
Prospective students should take use of the work facilities provided by southwest. They have tutors on call, computer labs, and libraries all to help with your education. They should also participate in the activities such as poetry, movie night, game tournaments, and guess speakers.
