I have had an extremely positive experience at SCC. The teachers and staff are all helpful and pleasant.

Our school offers classes for morning, afternoon, and night schedules. They also offer several certificate programs that lead to quicker employment.

Resources are average, but acceptable for a community college. We have more facilities than other colleges, but some of ours are becoming outdated.
College Senior 2013-11-06T02:33:12Z
We have an excellent internet connection and several computers available for student use.

There are several options for tutoring and places to study. Some of our teachers are SCC graduates and are heavily involved in the school and seminars.

Our teachers are experienced and have true passion for their jobs. There are several resources for tutoring.

The best resource seems to be the learning assistance center where you can go to get free tutoring and help with classes and assignments. That's a HUGE plus to me! The library is kind of average. There isn't a cafeteria or athletic center.

So far, I am pleased with my experience at SCC. I have not had a negative experience when dealing with people or processes at the school. The teachers have been friendly and the admin staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

I much prefer online classes when available. It's great to be able to work school into your already busy schedule and it's awesome to do it in your pajamas!

WiFi is not strong but is there. Computer labs are available when they are not being reserved. You can print there also although it has been suggested to me to bring my own paper in the even the printer runs out.

My classes arent flexible what so ever, however its because I am in a certain program and the schedule is set. They classes arent offered but one time. Before I got into my program they general classes had great flexibility and I could work around almost anything. Now im stuck Monday through Thursday with no other option and I cannot work around anything.
College Senior 2013-06-22T20:28:22Z
The wi-fi is less than great. You can use the computer lab most of the time, but if a class has it reserved you are just out of luck.
College Senior 2013-06-22T20:25:33Z
This campus doesnt have an athletic center, but they have other good things like the learning assistance center. You can go pretty much any time. I believe a cafeteria is in the works as well.
College Senior 2013-06-22T20:24:00Z
I like online classes. It gives me opportunity to work at my own pace and not have to travel so much. I have only had one class that was unreasonable. I had to learn to manage my time really really well and take the initiative to get every thing done. I wish more of my stuff was online.

There is so much opportunity for outdoor education/recreation in this area, and the Outdoor Leadership program has a lot of connections with the businesses in the area.
College Senior 2013-01-28T02:50:01Z
This is one of the only community colleges I know of to offer an Outdoor Leadership degree. What better place to learn about the outdoors than the Great Smoky Mountains!!!
College Senior 2013-01-28T02:38:05Z
At the Swain center campus, they have just upgraded all the PC's and added wifi. Everything works great!

There are a lot of high school kids that attend the college concurrently while taking high school classes. I feel that these kids take away from the classroom experience because of their immaturity and young age. Mostly though, the other students are adults with jobs and families and are getting a degree to better provide for their families.

From my experience, on-line classes require more work on the part of the student so you have to be willing to put in a lot of study and reading time. At first on-line classes are difficult to navigate but once you get the hang of it, its not a problem. You have to carefully schedule your work because there isn't a professor standing over you reminding you of your due dates.
College Senior 2012-11-26T16:59:44Z
Faculty and staff are always understanding and helpful with a willingness to go above and beyond.

I love the Physical Therapist Assistant program. The workload so far is do-able and I feel like I am getting the training I need for a successful career in the field. The facility that we have currently is very small and congested, but they are working on expanding after Christmas, so I am looking forward to having more room!

I have attended two other colleges/universities and what stands out the most to me about Southwestern CC is how the teachers treat the students. Although my classes at the other schools were small, I felt like the professors could care less about what grade I was making. At SCC, my professors actually WANT me to succeed. They make sure that we understand the material and can pass the tests.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I feel like the services and education I receive make the tuition worth while. I even have to pay out of state tuition, but the financial aid process was easy and was not a hassle like I was expecting it to be.
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:40:39Z
I have never had any trouble with on campus computers, networks, or printing services! This is VERY refreshing!
College Senior 2012-11-06T21:37:05Z
You can tell that the college is very involved. There is always something going on whether it is an event, a seminar, a special class, or even a special dinner with speakers. I appreciate knowing that just because I attend a community college, it doesn't mean that I can't get a real college experience! The campus is a little old, but it is kept up well, so I can't complain.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
