Originally, I was hesitant when it came to going back to school, but after one term, I learned that SWOCC offered very accessible and intriguing entry level college classes and I had the luxury of spending time with some amazing teachers. Especially my Psych teacher Anny Mueller!

Southwestern is the home of The Lakers. I had been out of school for ten years, I was worried that I wouldn't succeed in this new adventure. I came to Southwestern to prove something to myself and others that said I wouldn't succeed in college, also to help me emotionally because I felt unworthy because I had done nothing with my life. So I decided to go to college and that I could fail or succeed, I needed up getting honor roll or dean's list the first three terms of my college career. SWOCC is the best place to try something new and succeed at something you never thought you could. The teachers, faculty and advisers are here to help you succeed and be the best you can be, they are here to help you find the degree for you to have the best future you can. If you have no clue what you want to study at college and that is holding you back from going to college then come to SWOCC in Coos Bay, OR and find the best version of yourself.
Obviously, as a community college in a small town its degrees aren't really all that valuable, not as valuable as more prestigious schools of course. However, I feel that it is at least a reputable school and a degree from it gives you plenty of potential!
