Los Angeles Southwest College is a good junior college especially if you want to go to school. The classes are not as filled up compared to other colleges. They offer many classes as well. However, they do need better staffing, mainly pertaining to the nursing department, but overall there are many staff members. The campus if continuously under construction and hopefully the new building currently being built will be a science building. Other than having no cafeteria, it is a decent school.

SouthWest Community College overall is a great school however, can use a few improvements. Beginning with the good parts, SouthWest has a few professors who really care and take passion in their job which is great for the student. I also find the campus to be very appealing and clean, on the outside. I also like how there is a sheriff station on campus which makes me feel safe at all times. As far as the poor factors that come with SouthWest, the first would be the bug problem, specifically ants. During the summer, there is so many ants outside and surprisingly, they are all in classrooms as well which can be a slight distraction. Also, I do feel that some of the students here are not really as dedicated as they should be and they do not really take school serious as a whole. Overall, SouthWest Community College is a good school to attend however, just like every other school, it can use some improvements.
I am a current student here and am now applying to the nursing program that they have here.I love the professors here they are encouraging and want you to succeed ! Most teachers are just there for a check but with most of the professors here, they teach with passion. I am very grateful to come into contact with the souls i have met here on this campus and i have met some long life friends on the way. The opportunities at this school are endless and the resources are far from limited. Counselors are ready to mentor and help with whatever questions. The tutoring office has some of the most welcoming students and are thorough in tutoring. This campus is highly recommended for a jc and when i move on to a university i am really going to miss this campus.
