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.
Review Your College
Overall my experience in LASC has been a pleasant one. There are counselors that care about your academic progress, the school has several good professors in each subject, and there are several programs available that help students achieve their academic goals. The school does have its flaws for example, it suffers from non stop technical difficulties in class rooms and there is a big problem when concerning restroom cleanliness but other than that the school is good and they have made many improvements throughout the campus during my time there.
The professors are extremely passionate. They care about the students success, family and their community. Most give us students extra attention and time with them if needed. All of the counselors and staff too give their all.
