Being in the music program at Southwestern Community College, my schedule is different from the average student. Music is what I do all day, and with around 20 credit hours per semester, there isn't time for much else. I feel like being forced to work is preparing me greatly for what is next to come. There is also a wide variety of classes, many of which are required. This leaves every student with a assortment of skills, from arranging, to teaching abilities, even studio engineering. Among the skills I have acquired thus far through the variety of classes, working hard is probably the most valuable of all. There is no other way to graduate this music program, and I think the syllabus is well-suited for young musicians. Although I am excited to graduate soon (the music program only lasts 2) I will greatly miss my classmates and teachers, both of whom I have grown very close with. Everything I have learned here will surely be utilized throughout my career in music, and life in general.

At Southwestern Community College I participated in volleyball, which gave me a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. I would recommend going out and meeting people to make the experience more enjoyable. After volleyball, this current semester I am taking all my classes online so I can work full time. Not something I would recommend, it is difficult not getting to grow a relationship with a professor. Although the classes are thorough it is not the same as a face-to-face class.
I truly have no complaints about this school. I do not care for the scheduling for my particular program, but that doesn't mean that the school is a bad place to go to! I think the staff are all educated and very student oriented. I would recommend to a friend.
