Southwestern Michigan College is a small school with big opportunities.
We offer degrees that can get students started on nearly any field of study for a fraction of the cost of universities. Students have transferred to the University of Michigan and other prestigious institutions.
Our 240-acre campus is safe, beautiful and always busy with activity. Students can participate in intramural sports, clubs, and the many events that take place year-round.
Students who live on campus enjoy their own private bedrooms in apartment-style suites.

Southwestern Michigan College Reviews
The students currently at SWC and the alumni, claim it has a diverse environment. It does appear to be on the surface. The students racially segregate themselves and for students who are not accustomed to this, this separation is uncomfortable. The different races of students mostly interact with their own. If a student attempts to break through this division they are profiled and generally not accepted.
The teaching and administrative staff however is not diverse. The school claims they have many jobs for students, more than students they have to fill them, but you hardly see any of these student jobs filled by students of color. This is obvious when you look around. Some teachers profile and show racial favoritism. The teachers and administration are the models. If the teachers were more inclusive and friendly towards ALL students they would set a more overall inclusive tone.
