Hi, my name is Keyahna and this upcoming fall semester at will be my last year at Southwest! There are so many amazing characteristics about Southwest that I could list but I will only recall a few for time. A huge factor I focus on with going further in my career are teachers and Southwest has truly blown me away with their instructors. These men and women truly care for their students and help in any way they possibly can, and with the demand of life around us all today, it's nice to have some reassurance in college. Along with the teachers, Southwest has the best "college atmosphere". I have truly made life long friends and most of them are not even going into the same profession that I am! One thing that I would change about Southwest is a new women's dorm to make room for all the incoming young ladies!

From personal experience, I love attending Southwest. The campus is small, but it feels like home and it’s beautiful. The staff and students here are nice as well. The campus living is pretty good. The dorms are newly renovated, and a new dorm building was built almost a year ago for the boys. If you don’t want to eat in the cafeteria, there’s a restaurant on campus called “The Grill”, and it is delicious. There’s also many activities/organizations you can participate in or join during your time there. Southwest is the perfect community college to attend. GO BEARS!!!
I like how the classes are small. It is easier to talk to the instructors after class or to contact them. Also, most of the teachers are great! The instructors I had were nice and it was easy to understand what they were teaching. In other words they made leading easy.
