It is a great place to start. The student life is fun and exciting, and the food is excellent! I'm super happy that i saved money and am still attending a great school.

A good starter college, SWOCC has classes for most intended majors and good instructors. It won't cost an arm and a leg and the people here are really helpful and friendly. The culinary institute here is amazing and the fact that it's at a community college shouldn't deter you.
