Sowela Technical Community College is my first college I am currently attending. First, it is close to my home and is affordable. I did not know how I was going to pay for college until I spoke with someone in the administration office. They all helped me get started. If I needed any other help, they were there. My first day I was awe! The plprofessor's welcomed me with open arms. They are punctual and stayed on scheduled. My professors made sure we understood the material before leaving class.

The school is not crowded and is easy to get from class to class. Also, it is the most comfortable place where I prefer to study and work on my assignments. I had planned to transfer to another college, but because of my experience here, I do not want to leave Sowela.
I am a freshman at Sowela Tech, I am also in the Culinary Arts Program at Sowela. My experience here is unbelievably great! The staff and the students are great. I am so glad I had the opportunity to be a student at Sowela Technical Community College.
I am retired and am returned to school because I feel I have much more to contribute. Sowela offers the classes I need to begin a new career. The classes are small enough for individual attention by the professors. Support Staff is very positive and helpful. My overall experience after my first semester has been wonderful. I believe that in today's job market, Sowela offers the education and skills to re-enter the programming job-force easily. The support I have received on a personal basis from the Dean down to the professors has been and I expect will continue to be of the highest quality.
