Review Your College
Honestly I can't promise you how great or awful school is. It is what you make of it and that's what you get out from it. I can't say school will be easy, you're going to have struggles and moments where you don't know why you're doing this. But all your hard work will be worth it at the end! No one can take your education away from you. Believe in yourself! You can do it!
This school, from its campus structure, its councilors, teachers and services are the best I have ever encountered. Before here, I went to Mesa community college. But southwestern is very different. Their teachers are energetic and up going. They all provide you with so many sources that will help you pass their classes. All the professors in person and online keep you updated with homework, assignments, readings and activities that are occurring on campus. They all show interest and a great amount of knowledge in their field. Aside from that counselors and tutors are all their to help you keep on track to reach your goal in life. After coming here from Mesa, I have learned what a real community college feels like.
