I do not really know if this will be considered unique as I have only attended one college and I do not know the differences. However, in Southwestern College people really feel like they are in a community. Maybe that is why they do not want to leave. The San Ysidro campus is small and the staff is friendly. It may sound like an slogan but they really treat you like family and make you feel comfortable. I am not sure that feeling comfortable is something good in a 2-year college because people are supposed to want to transfer.

The online system "blackboard" is very reliable and easy to use. Most of the online teachers are really skilled at creating an interesting and challenging class.
College Junior 2013-10-21T20:36:02Z
Some of the teachers could be better, but there are also a lot of good ones.
My main complaint is that it is hard to coordinate a class schedule and a work schedule. There should be more class offerings with a more flexible schedule, or maybe more online offerings.

Our school has it all, computer labs, free wireless in certain areas on campus, it all runs well and is helpful.

The campus is beautiful, and convenient. The landscaping is mature and well kept. We have everything we need, a library, gym, theater, student center with pool tables and one building where all the necessary services are located.

I am a nursing major, and the only thing that is inconvenient is the fact that some of the classes are not offered on campus. Therefore, I have to attend those classes at a different school. The curriculum is really long, and it sometimes seems like they want to keep my longer bc they keep adding classes for me to take in order to transfer. My personal advise is to look into it yourself, the workload is good as long as you take the time to invest in the type of grade you want.

Most of the students are really young, and seem to be there by force because they don't take the classes serious. They way you can tell is that they are always loud and don't consider others who are there to learn.

The only problem I encountered with on online was that if you had a slight internet connection problem during a test there was no sympathy on the grading. Other than that I appreciate the online availability. It is good for classes that you know you can pass without going to class.

My first time taking an online college was somewhat scary. At first, I thought to myself, taking courses online is much easier than going to school. But it is a huge responsibility, you have to stay in track with the course, if you miss something you are lost. It is a little bit stressful, but it makes you feel more independent, and makes you more responsible on reading the content of the course. Although you never get to meet the students or the professor, online courses makes you feel more comfortable on interacting with them, if you don't like to talk in person, you feel more comfortable on talking and discussing on the discussion board on the online course.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The education I'm getting at SWC is strongly worth. It is worthy because, the first year I started college I was lost, and it was somewhat scary scary for me, because it was expensive, I had to buy books, scantrons, pay for classes, and plus I had to pay for my own transportation, and without a job and my parents had the responsibility of paying my brother's education, it was difficult. But when I heard of financial aid, it made thing much easier for my parents and for myself.

Most students at SWC come from hard working families. The majority of students are Hispanic, and each student has diverse beliefs. Even though everyone has their own background, students at SWC accept each other.

The career center is an interesting place because it provides you with many resources that allow you to choose a major. I remember going to the career center when I was a freshman at SWC. I think the staff at the career center are very enthusiastic and helpful.

I am studying to be a surgical technologist, and SWC has a program desgined for this career. I look forward to learn more about the facilities and requirements that this job has to offer, and I feel that Southwestern College can provide me with everything I need to know.
College Senior 2013-10-18T17:01:16Z
I have been able to accommodate my classes in a way that I can work part time. I go to school every morning, and I work in the evenings.
College Senior 2013-10-18T17:00:07Z
We have a lot of resources such as tutoring centers, a large library, athletic activities, and peer advisors.
College Freshman 2013-10-15T02:44:52Z
Very helpful, especially planning out your career, they give you SEP and explain it very easily to understand.

I give this grade to this school because it wasn't a hassle to get the paper work through, but I haven't gotten what they promised.
College Freshman 2013-10-15T02:41:12Z
I give this grade because, there are many workshops that can help us as students; but the workshops are given a little too late. I love the staff even though the counselors can be a bit busy the others staff giver their best to give you support and advice.
College Junior 2013-10-14T20:26:27Z
Slowly internet at times, or even hackers attacking the system which makes the school shut down the system. The printers are always in good condition, and is always hassle free to print.
College Junior 2013-10-14T20:23:38Z
The Library is of great value, but is limited since it closes early because of staff cuts.
College Junior 2013-10-14T20:21:51Z
I haven't taken any online courses.
College Junior 2013-10-14T20:20:13Z
There is scandal going on that our student body is under some corrupt rule in which the money that is brought in, is not being used appropriately.
College Junior 2013-10-14T20:18:42Z
The school at time lacks in funding and the proper equipment at times. But because of the creativity of the teachers they are able to make the class still worth while and a good learning environment.
College Sophomore 2013-09-29T20:44:06Z
They give a lot of information
College Freshman 2013-09-26T17:54:09Z
Southwestern has lots of small campus around the city haven't been to any of the main campus sports.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
