My experience so far at Sowela, I'd have to say is amazing. My 1st year experience was great. I was involved and doing really well academically due to my amazing teachers and just the great vibe there. I'd recommend anyone to sowela, they have such a homey vibe. The staff is great, and they do all they can to help you. Sowela's services for students are great, I know the tutoring for sure is amazing as I've heard from other student peers. The diversity is amazing you see all kinds of ethnics there and everyone gets along pretty well for the most part. The campus has gone from just a tiny one building campus to their expansion which it now looks like a valued community college. Their student center is great, I love hanging out there through breaks, food is good, the area in general is pretty good. I wish they had fraternities and sororities.
I love this college,because everyone I have met and tried to give you their all in every major you try to pursue, their is an an atmosphere of care among the instructors you get.Every instructor that I had has given me the correct advice about what to do and what to take to continue on in my major I have been graced to do for the rest of my life. I thank God for this opportunity to take of those who are need of help in their time of need.
