Review Southwestern Illinois College
If SWIC was a 4-year university I would continue there for my B.S. As a nontraditional student (working married, mother of two) I need flexibility in my schedule and SWIC offered that. I am finding that it is virtually impossible to find a university that offers the programs that I need at times that are convenient or even plausible for a working individual, let alone a mother. I believe that universities should take note of the efficient functionality of the community colleges and mirror them. Our society is constantly changing its' needs and I believe that the community college's have kept up with those needs while universities are stuck in an old mindset and need to come to terms.
Its a great campus with a friendly community. The services here are great and convenient for students. It's an extremely cheap college as well. The only thing I have to complain about is that the teachers are hit and miss. Some teach you important thing pertaining to the class, some just give you busy work. Do your research before picking classes for the semester.
It is very flexible! The supervisor of my job, which is also where I go to school, creates the work schedules to work around student worker class schedules. Therefore, school and class interference is no issue. I also have time to go to doctor appointments when classes are over for the day.
