I absolutely love the faculty at Southwestern College! They're amazing! Everyone including student services staff, counselors, teachers and students. The campus is amazing, safe and presentable. There are so many classes offered and the graduation rate is encouraging. I am sad I will one day have to leave. However, I am confident that I will be prepared for my next journey.
Review Southwestern College - California
Southwestern College is a great school to be a part of. This school has numerous amounts of resources to assist students succeed. Professors and administrators are very helpful and supportive with students. From my personal experience, I like this college because the campus has programs that help you achieve academic success. The school provides athletics and clubs that welcome students of any type to be a part of something they desire and find interesting within school. Overall Southwestern is a great community college that will assist students towards their goal of obtaining an associates degree or transferring to a four year university.
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!
