Coming right out of high school going to southwestern was a very smooth transition. I had fairly easy classes with great teachers! At times you may feel like you are still in high school. Depending on the professor they will kinda hold your hand like your still in high school. It can be a good thing because you aren’t getting blindsided by all kinds of work and very little help. Southwestern provides varies different tourtoring and proffesers offices hours for help on assignments essays ect.

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.
Southwestern opened an opportunity for me to be able to study something amazing and well paid, without having to have gone to a lucrative university. There's something for everyone here, no matter what their interests may be. There is an excellent blend of cultures and people of all backgrounds which I sincerely think helps create a peaceful and productive atmosphere. I am personally trying to get a career in the medical field and I can only say good things about the college's medical program. I have worked with professors who have motivated me to give the best of myself and who have inspired me to continue pursuing my career goals. If you live in the San Diego area, I heavily recommend Southwestern College if you are looking for a community college that will help you find your path in life and succeed every step of the way.
