SOWELA Technical Community College is a 2-year institution serving five parishes in southwestern Louisiana. Academic programs at SOWELA are divided among five schools offering associate degrees and Louisiana Transfer degrees. The college’s Flight Advising Success Team pairs students with “Flight Advisors” who develop individualized academic plans and provide counseling services. SOWELA’s mascot is the Flying Tiger after the logo from a noteworthy WWII volunteer Air Force flying battalion.
SOWELA has become one of the best decisions of my life. Not only do they do their best to make the student's lives easier but they also believe in giving back to their students. The teachers here genuinely care, and that is something remarkable!

Small classes make it easier to learn. The teachers want you to pass, so they will go great lengths to help you score that A. Such a breeze than a big university!
