It's definitely a step up from high-school experience wise, but it’s a welcome change. Everybody is unbelievably kind and helpful and the school is very good at providing newcomers with information and opportunities. Their Resident Adviser staff are wonderful and always available for questions and a friendly face. What they’ve organized in housing only during the is very impressive and really helps bring a feeling of camaraderie to the school. The move in block party they held had stuff for everyone to experience and gather as a community. Because the school has housing there are people from all over the country. I’m from California myself, but my roommate is from Alaska and the school girl one house over is from Australia. The dorm style living is an easy transition here, given the updated apartments. This school markets “a four year experience in a 2 year school” and it really delivers that with a sense of independence and strong academic environment.

Southwestern has a great sense of community that makes you feel at home. The view here is amazing; we are right off of Empire Lake. There are so many different programs and majors to choose from here. Due to Corona things have been a little different here. Is is harder to meet with anyone in person to explain things, and they don't always explain it well over the phone or in an email. I wish that there was more people around to call or email. Corona had been an adjustment for everyone but, Southwestern does its best.
I have 2 in person classes and 3 online classes right now. All in person classes are 6 feet apart, mask required. Online classes can be very hard. Some students struggle to find motivation, but most of the teachers are there to help. Online zoom meetings with teachers are available. They can answer question and help with class work. Some teachers even have zoom lectures you can join with your other classmates.
