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.

Southwestern Community College was a good choice for me. I was able to go outside of my comfort zone and experience a lot of new things in a way I would not have if I went elsewhere. I was able to excel in my learning experience thanks to the staff who go out of their way to help you succeed. There is a lot of diversity at SWCC and I was able to become friends with people from all over the world. Living on campus, I was given the opportunity to participate in all different types of activities with dorms that are sizable and clean. My experience overall was very positive and I am glad that I made the right choice for myself.
I am in music program and I want to practice everyday even weekends.
College gives a privilege to open few hours for music program students but it is not enough. And, the college cafe is not so cheep but not enough amount of food. The dorms are so expensive to live so I needed to find a room by myself out of campus.
