I like Southwest Mississippi Community College. It’s the best a community college can give. It’s getting me through my general courses, and I love it. It’s a small school, so it’s easier to make friends. The classes are small so you can have a bit more 1 on 1 time with teachers if you need it. They have a tutoring program and PLENTY of work-study jobs. It’s a good school for the most part. The only problem is the housing. It takes a long time for anything to get done, but what can you do when all your maintenance staff keeps quitting? I rate this school pretty highly on my list. It’s nice and quiet and has a big lake with ducks always tending to themselves. It’s a beautiful campus. I love it.

SMCC is actually a really good two-year college for those who aren't quitre ready to go off to a four year university just yet. The teachers are great and are always available, sports are a big deal, the campus is gorgeous and the dorms are pretty nice.

Southwest Mississippi Community College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Southwest Mississippi Community College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Southwest Mississippi Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Wow ! If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, the advice I would give myself would be to slow down, be patient and most definitely train myself in better study habits and ask questions. I have been out of high school only two years and it has flown by. Slowing down and being patient goes hand in hand. When you reach 9th grade, you say: man, if I could only be a Senior....then the Sophomore year comes and again, only two more years and "I'm out of this place"; then, in the blink of an eye, you're walking down that aisle with your cap and gown with your classmates and you wonder how those four high school years passed so quickly. But, the most important advice I would give myself would be to "hit the books" !!! I know now that college is a different world and I wish that I had spent more of my free time reading, studying or getting together with study groups. Note to self as a senior - study, slow down and be patient and ask a ton of questions.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    So far, I have not experienced a "worst" thing about my school. The student/teacher ratio is one of the best in the state and the faculty and staff are always willing to lend a hand with anything. The administrative staff, as well as the dean and president, meet & greet most students and call us by name. So, I guess if I had to say the worst thing about my school is the ducks! They sometimes attack students as they walk around the lake going to and from class.
