I love Southwestern College, my experience has been great since day one. I love going to school every morning because it excites me to be around such great people. The clubs that I am a part of make the experience of being on campus 100 times greater. It feels like a home away from home!
Online learning has been a difficult shift from in-person lectures. So far my professors have been attentive and willing to work with my personal predicaments. It has not been easy but my professors have been understanding and kind throughout the entire process. Online learning is a great way to still get your schooling and attend to work and life.
So far this is my first year at Southwestern College. I have to say that I'm really glad I decided to give this college a chance, since this isn't my first throughout my college experiences. So far, all my professors have been amazing, especially Emily Meyers, If you are in need of English 115, please take her class. My academic writing has drastically improved with her help and guidance. Anyway, I've also attended a couple workshops that I found on the Academic Calendar, and again I have to say that the counselor I was able to speak to was amazing asl well. I truly believe that Southwestern is here to serve their students. If I ever have questions, I'm sure to find them on their website, or someone is always willing to help you with the click of an email. I feel great here and I hope others take a chance like I did.
As an online student with quite some experience, I have to say that Southwestern College has surprised me with the amount of effort they put into their online programs/resources for students. I'm new to CANVAS, but I really really enjoy using it for school. I like how my courses are easy to find, and which a click I'm able to see all my assignments that are due, my grades, my to-do lists. Its user friendly and if you have questions, your teachers are available on there as well to send a message. So far, I'm quite happy with my online learning.
Taking classes online was really different compared to face to face. I honestly don't prefer online because it's easier do things and it doesn't really challenge you as much. But still there are some teachers who do challenge you and give you tuff work to do so it really depends on the teachers and the effort you put in.
Due to the pandemic the professors were very kind and encouraging with the hectic schedules of their students. Southwestern college professors were extremely flexible and understanding when it came to assignments or even taking extra time aside from office hours to help their students.
Southwestern college is a very humble and helpful college. Because of it's more intimate structure you really are able to get the one on one help you need.
This is a great community college with a huge diversity of students. Everyone is so friendly, and they have a lot of resources for you to continue studying.
My online experience was great, all professors try their best to maintain students engage with the classes. Canvas is super easy to navigate and find all the information.
I started attending SWC at the age of 15 while duel enrolled in high school. I was a full time student for my high school and was part time at SWC. SWC had a large campus and I would compare not only the size of the campus to a university but I would compare the education to that level as well. SWC had free tutoring services, extensive library hours, and other great resources. The professors I had the chance of knowing at SWC were amazing. They truly cared for their students and went out of their way to make sure we understood the material being taught. Overall it was a beautiful campus and although I am grateful for being able to attend such a lovely school I am saddened that I have reached the point where I must leave and transfer to a university. It's such an amazing school and I think its better then a lot of universities out there.
It was a shaky start with this school. After returning after 20 years and working full time, I jumped right in. I was able to get most of the classes I needed, and I was connected with an excellent counselor who led me in the right direction and gave me excellent advice. Up until the pandemic, I had taken all of my classes online, and then all classes in March 2020 had transitioned to online, which for me was wonderful. Most of the teachers I've had have been very helpful, and I feel ready to successfully transfer and feel prepared for the next chapter of my education.
During the pandemic, all classes were transitioned to online only. For me, this was wonderful, as I was able to take classes I ordinarily wouldn't have been able to take online. I decided to take advantage and loaded up on classes in order to finish sooner in order to transfer. The platform used is Canvas, and it's pretty user friendly for the most part.
I took classes online at SWC, and the professors were nice. Students can earn degrees and certificates in 32 different fields. Popular programs include: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies and Humanities, and Health Professions and Related Programs.
I felt comfortable with commencing my college experience at southwestern college, especially when we were on a pandemic. My academic journey allowed me to foresee what challenges are yet to come in the future. At southwestern college I had the opportunity of enhancing my education in psychology, English, and mathematics.
Great school with professors and people who take interest in your future. The cultural orientation is amazing. This school enhanced my self-confidence and opened my eyes to opportunities and doors waiting to be opened in my future. I felt comfortable with the people there as well as the classes. There is always someone willing to help you out whenever obstacles are in your way.
I love that they're interested in my future and will do whatever is necessary to see me succeed! This college has so many opportunities and many degrees to choose from.
The professors at Southwestern College make online easy, fun, and are always accessible whenever you need them.
