I have taken a couple Hybrid Online courses. They were very well organized and it was very clear that my professors cared about leading us in the right direction and supporting us through these online classes. Southwestern uses the program Blackboard for our online necessities and all of my experiences with it so far have been great. The professor/student relationship seems to be a tough one to have because we never get to really see each other face to face, but teachers do make sure to have good communication with students.

Since Southwestern College is a Community college, it is a very un-united school. Students range from people taking it easy and messing around in class, to students who are very strict with their education and want to transfer as soon as possible. It is a very diverse school where people seem to accept each other and understand that we live in a melting pot of different cultures (San Diego).

Tuition & Financial Aid:
If it weren't for FAFSA, I would have to pay a lot more than what I have been paying for the last three semesters. I am very thankful for it and the financial aid office has been fairly helpful. I do believe the value of the education I am receiving is worth the tuition I paid.

We have a brand new cafe at Southwestern College called the Time-Out Cafe. It is very nicely designed, providing students with a comfortable place to rest, study between classes, or simply socialize. the walls are mostly glass, and have bar tables and stools against them. At night LED lights light the outside making it somewhere very appealing to go to when people have afternoon classes.

My overall Southwestern Community College experience so far has definitely been average. Half of my classes have been very enjoyable, with professors showing genuine care for the welfare of their students. However, the other half have been dull, un-organized, and there has been a noted lack of interests from the professors. Even though some of my classes have not been very enjoyable, each one of those experiences have pushed me to become more self-dependent, organized, and aware of my techniques in the classroom. If I could do it all over again, I would have applied to colleges right after High School in order to make this experience less confusing and much more rapid. Saving money was a major reason behind having to go to a community college instead of going to a University straight out of college. I want to pursue my Business Administration and Management major as soon as possible in order to be able to completely dive deep into starting a non-profit organization that will be a part of solving the water crisis in India. Southwestern College has provided what I need for my General Education , but now it is time to have favorite experiences in a different school.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
