Southwest Texas Junior College Reviews

I have little bad things to say about Southwest Texas Junior College! I was a dual credit student through high school then an on-campus student for the past two years as I complete my dual Associate degrees, there has ever been a bad experience to put me off. There are student-oriented clubs to select from, all active and engaging in their own right, and a variety of degree plans fitting for individuals choosing to stay local or transferring to a larger school.

Enrichment is average with a student lounge with an active and engaging staff. There is a gym for all students to utilize, open at fair hours, as well. Dorm life fairs similarly, with nice dorms (if you keep them clean) and active resident assistants willing to help when on duty.

Overall, I would recommend SWTJC to any student wanting to attend a junior college in the Southwest Texas area - with campuses in six different SWT cities for long-distance and in-person learning.

Great school! Great students! Great teachers! The campus is so close at heart makes for great connections between students and teachers. The location for the campus is great as well close to main places of the town. The dorms are amazing as well, and security on campus makes me feel so safe!
My overall experience at SWTJC, Southwest Texas Junior College, has been amazing. The college is a community college so there is less people than normal, so the students and myself get more of a one-on-one experience with the professors. What many of the professors do is to motivate their students to continue with school after they are done at SWTJC. The atmosphere is easy going, everyone talks to everyone, whether the subject is school related or personal. The School sets up activities for all the students to participate, and how I said my overall experience at SWTJC has been amazing.
