Southwestern Illinois College Reviews
The environment and class sizes are perfect for a great learning experience. The professors at SWIC truly want to see you succeed, and help you focus on your goals. They have a huge selection of degrees options, they pair with local universities to make sure credit transfer appropriately. The campus is well maintained and enjoyable to take a short study breaks and sit outside with friends. The food is good and SWIC offers a large variety of breakfast and lunch options. There are also many other food options just a short walk off campus.
I honestly love this place. I know at first it seems like "Oh it's just a community college there's never anything big happening there so why should I rate it five stars?" That's not the case at all. This community college is the most outgoing, loving college I've ever been on campus to. There are so many activities and when you walk around outside on campus you interact with so many different people, it's like they're family.
SWIC is a satisfactory campus. The good part about it is that it is really affordable and that the community is full of really good people. On campus activities and clubs are really diverse and fun to participate in. The curriculum, however, leaves much to be desired. Getting a good teacher is hit and miss. Some are really good at teaching and make lessons adaptable to their students, whereas some others dont stick to their own lessons and are very unstructured.
