SMCC has been a great experience for me! I am very grateful for the memories and friendships made at this community college. I went to SMCC off of a softball scholarship. This experience allowed me to call 21 other teammates my family. SMCC has great school spirit, professors that are willing to help you, and good down to earth people! I enjoyed my experience at Southwest Mississippi Community College!

I enjoyed my time at Southwest Mississippi Community College. It was my first time being enrolled at a college campus and a lot of my high school classmates were there with me. I enjoyed to food in the cafe, basketball, and football games. I loved how the teachers cared for their students and how they went the extra mile to make sure we learned everything that we possible could. The only thing I would change is that I would allow student to get loans at the school because even though the school is affordable, your day to day living expenses sometimes is not and the students may need a little more assistance.
The faculty and staff are very helpful. My instructors are great and very hands on. They have an open door policy, you can reach them at any time and are very responsive, i love the education i am receiving thus far at Southwest Mississippi!
