Attending Southwestern College was not only an excellent idea but also a really memorable experience, I graduated high school on 2015 and I wanted to attend San Diego State University right after leaving high school, but after viewing all price ranking and comparing I decided that SWC was the right choice for me. Not only prices are better and it gives the opportunity for low income students like myself, I will never regret attending Southwestern College because the education level is amazing and there is excellent professors that lead you to the right pathway for success. Not only that, but SWC is an amazing college that can make you feel right away at home, every faculty staff truly cares for the education of their students and they will do anything for us students to succeed. Southwestern Community College is where your pathway to succeed starts and where all of your educational questions will be answered.

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 finished my first year at Southwestern and the College got good impressions from me. It helps to know that you have a great academic team behind you. At every moment by email or on campus you see information to each instantante about the services that you have as a student.
There were situations that complicated you but there were free services and programs that are of great help to you to be a better student. The facilities are very good and the green areas are large. There are many places where you can spend much of your free time, whether in the big football field, the three-story library building (with many services inside), the three cafeterias inside the school or the Student Union Center where there is a game of pool or video game, or whether sitting on the grass. I even feel safe because inside the school there are policemen circulating in their cars at all times and there are security systems.
