Southwestern Oregon Community College Reviews

As a currently enrolled student, I've enjoyed the online learning experience. The teachers, tutors, staff and admissions councelor have all been extremely helpful and communicative. They've effectively addressed all of my questions and concerns. The academic aspect has been suitably challenging and satisfying. The online learning platform is set up to be motivating, understandable and enjoyable. I'm pursuing a teaching degree and both the Early Childhood Education Associates degree and the Elementary Education Associates degree is transferable to Oregon State University, thereby offering outstanding programs. I continue to be excited to achieve my educational aspiration through this college.

I’ve obtained my AAOT from SOCC, and I’ve enjoyed all of the classes and professors I’ve worked with so far. I’m currently in SOCC’s Nursing Program, and I’m enjoying every minute of it. Our professors are so helpful, and always doing the best they can to give us the skills we need to be great nurses. I still have five terms til I’ve completed the program, but I know they’re going to fly by and I’ll miss seeing my wonderful professors and classmates every day. I’m thankful for all the friendships I’ve made and the knowledge I’ve obtained by attending Southwestern Oregon Community College.
While Southwestern Oregon Community College is a wonderful stepping stone to 4 year Universities, the course offerings leave much to be desired. While all basic classes are offered, there aren't a lot of 'elective' type classes.
The campus is fairly large, with a lot of facilities. There are many resources available to help students, but they are not very well advertised, and people are often conveniently taking a break when you need them.
There are many clubs available, but they often seem disorganized and not as advertised.
