Testimonials

Kelcie

SWCC has a lot of great things to offer. The class sizes are perfect! You are able to stay engaged and focused, while having a personal connection with your teachers. The campus size is not overwhelming and the community is so supportive of academics and athletics. I am able to stay motivated with awesome encouragement from faculty and staff on campus. I originally went to a four-year college, but I’m really glad I chose Southwestern in the end.

I chose Southwestern because of the individual attention faculty members provide to students. I was recruited by the coaching staff and love the campus life. It is top-notch, especially our dorms!
