All Categories
Internet:
Wifi is usually always available except in the far classrooms in the AV trailers

Teachers:
Excellent always willing to help students

Services:
Not many services offered to students, it could be more of a push to have more groups and services offered to students.

Students:
Many of the students are commute students who are there to take classes and leave. Unfortunately there are also alot of students that are combative with teachers and there to just waste time.
Review Los Angeles Southwest College
It was a trying time at Southwest. Academic wise, the school is ok. I attended LASC prior to all of the improvements that make it look fancy. The bathrooms were always dirty and foul smelling. The bathroom floors were always sticky. There were several occasions where the school's safety was compromised. The food trucks on campus are hygienically dirty, overpriced, and will give you some sort of food poisoning.
Overall my experience has been pleasant. The campus has been renovated and there are plans for more improvements in the works. There is no cafeteria,unfortunately the only place to get a hot meal is the food truck. Class offerings are limited but students are able to register in classes within the other seven colleges in LACCD. Student life is beginning to take off with many events scheduled for the upcoming fall semester and student clubs are on the rise.
