With a campus located between San Diego and the US/Mexican border, Southwestern College is the only 2-year community college in the southern part of San Diego County. In order to serve this well-populated region, Southwestern offers over 320 degree and certificate programs, including a Horticulture program that studies numerous plants and flowers housed at the nearby South Bay Botanic Garden. Southwestern’s Center for International Studies offers several study-abroad opportunities and recruits numerous students from outside the United States.
On a scale of one to ten... I would give SWC a 8 points. Everything you need is there. I wish there were more music and dance programs as well as extracirricular ones.
