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!
Tips for prospective students
BECOME INVOLVED! It is never too late to join and serve. The SGA is the perfect way to start! Not only does it look good on resumes but you learn to become involved in giving back to the community and help this school to become an even better campus!
Academic Rigor
The teachers genuinely care. They want for you to succeed, thrive, and grow! They will do everything in their power to make your learn even if it involves homework
Dorm Life
SOWELA now shares apartments with McNeese State University! Get yours now! ;)
Food and Dining
We have an on campus cafe that has EVERYTHING for a reasonable price of $5 for an entire meal. Not to mention that once a month our Culinary department will cook Gourmet lunches to attend also at a reasonable price!
What to do for fun
SOWELA believes in giving back to their students! From a small tuition fee of $5 from each student, the SGA is able to put on festivals in both the fall and spring semesters to show just how important their students are!
Bang for the buck
SOWELA puts more money into their teaching programs than they do creating a Dreamy College Campus I have found that it is because they focus more on their education that the money is not only worth it but it's CHEAPER THAN OTHER COLLEGES!

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!
Tips for prospective students
I went to 2 different universities. Big universities. Being on this small campus feels welcoming. If you are a high school student, please come to class. Coming to class is going to be your best friend. The teachers give TEST and EXAM reviews!! Some even give you the exact questions. You will miss important information to help you pass.
Academic Rigor
The classes are easy, yet hard. Depending on your teacher. In all the classes I take, I feel like I am learning and retaining the information that is given. Some teachers make you think. Some teach by the book, and some toss the book out. BTW, those are the best teachers. They teach you real life experiences out in your field.
Dorm Life
No dorms here on this community campus
Food and Dining
They have a little hanger that they have food in. I have yet to go to it, but others say it is yummy. BTW, they only take cash!
What to do for fun
They have an activity every week. They also have different types of sessions to attend to better you as a person and as a student.
Clubs and Activities
A lot of different clubs. If you have an idea to start one up, present it to them. Majority of the time it is accepted!
Campus Safety
We always have officers on campus. The campus is also located on an old air force base. It is also just a couple minutes from the State Troopers Unit and the Sheriff's Department. It would be very hard to feel unsafe or have a situation happen. Very safe campus to be on.
