Southwest Texas Junior College Reviews

Overall it was a good journey to have experienced after graduating high school. The majority of the teachers were amazing and did their jobs right. All of the students felt encouraged by the faculty and staff in order to continue getting a higher education. My personal favorite teacher was my social studies instructor who taught all of my history classes. I hated my art appreciation class and educator with a passion due to the fact she never explained anything well enough for the students to understand which made everyone angry, especially when it came to regular tests and the final exam. Thankfully, all of the sections at the admissions office were very beneficial and never failed to help the students in need.

My experience at SWTJC right now has been amazing. Everyone is so friendly and the teachers that I have are great! As of right now, there is not really anything I would change. It's a very friendly environment.
I like the school because it makes getting a degree a very attainable goal, especially for those of us stuck in a small town. Like any school it could use some changes; there are certain aspects already being worked on, but one thing I have yet to notice an awknowledgable change in is the online system they have set up. Yes, they've been "working on it", but it's been a few years now and it's still down every other day, or the links don't work, or some other technical issue (blame the IT guy in charge of it). As fast as technology has been moving in the past decade you would hope that our education system would take advantage of it all and help us to continue to move forward. Like, at least let me register for classes online without having to physically go to school and seek help from a counselor who is always busy.
