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.

Sowela has changed so much in the past 5 years. They have expanded their programs and buildings! Sowela is a much one on one type of school. The teachers actually care about you and your degree. They want to see you succeed and try to help you as much as possible. There really is not anything that I would change about Sowela. I would recommend this school to any one who struggles with big schools and want to start off small.
They are very professional with everything they do to help you accomplish things in life. They always there to give you a help hand. To get you the level you need to be at. I would be starting school this fall, and I very excited about this although a lil scare at the same time, being that I’ve been out of school since 2004. I’m am a mother of 3 lovely adults, and they always encouging me to presume my career. I’m looking forward for a Bless school this semester, I’m proud of who I am and grateful for the opportunity to go back to to school
