LASC is such a great turn around college, I have taken classes there for years and seeing the campus being remodeled to a beautiful campus is amazing. It finally matches the people that work there. I absolutely love that any time I go to get help, if it is with counseling or admissions, I can tell they are really trying to help me succeed and not just trying to get me out of the office. It's in a location that is easy access to many people of color and low socioeconomic status which means the students are really relatable and diverse!

From what I’ve experienced in this college so far, some professors makes classes very easy because there’s a minority majority in this college. Professors have the potential to do a good job, but students are the problem here, they don’t fully commit to study, they just want to earn a degree to start working and earn more money than what they currently are earning. The classes that I’ve most enjoyed in this college are math classes, mainly because they are the “most” challenging classes in this classes, everything else is very easy. In this college you can raise your GPA very easily.
As a non-traditional student, I find Southwest College to be very convenient. I am able to obtain classes at a time that I am able to go after work. I am also able to choose classes that I need in order to transfer out. The only downside is the lack of resources that the campus has; bathrooms are constantly out of toilet paper and soap is always out by the time the Evening classes starts. Projectors or computers in class are often not working therefore making class presentation more difficult than it should. Bookstore is not opened extended hours.
