The campus is a bit outdated but the professors are extremely helpful with anything they can. Their office hours are easily accessible in the syllabus and their office usually isn't too far from the classroom. The labs are sometimes lengthy but the professors manage the class time effectively to get the most done in one day. The parking lot can be a bit creepy at night because its pretty empty but there are lights always on. The price of the classes is exceptionally low compared to other universities or colleges. It definitely is getting the most out of your money.
Overall, Southwest Texas Junior College is a great school with many faculty and staff willing to help those in need. There are many opportunities given, one just needs to reach for them. I recommend SWTJC for anyone who wishes to receive their basics or their associates degree.
Southwest Texas Junior College is an outstanding school. The professors and counselors are always there to help and advise us what choices are best in the best interest for us. The classes are not to big so, the professors have more time to work with us individually and ensure we understand the lessons. The people are very friendly, it's easy to meet new people and find study partners. In overall the college is great and I couldn't find a way to make it better.

If I could go back in time to my high school senior year I would definitely tell myself to make sure I had an alternative plan. Never ever under any circumstances put all your eggs in one basket. Always have that backup plan in the event something happens and you find out later that field just isn't for you. Get training in something general that can cross over several fields and careers. Don't focus so tightly that your training is not usable in other fields of study. The economy is not your friend, just because your career choice now seems like a good idea, it doesn't mean it will be 10 years from now. I can not stress enough always have a back-up plan.
I wish I would have been more prepared for the "no excuses" aspect of college. Not just this college but college in general. College just isn't as lenient as high school and that is something I have had to learn the hard way in college.
I attend the local community college available in my area, for its size I have to honestly say it is a very established, professional school. If I did have to choose something negative about it, it would simply be it does not offer a photography class. Other than that, it is wonderful! If not having a photography class is its worst attribute then I feel they are doing pretty well in the realm of colleges.
They had a parade around the town for the school and some of its programs.
It is a school where people who aren't sure what they want to do go to get their basics done.
When I look around at my fellow students at Southwest Texas Junior College I see single mothers trying to give their children a better future, first generation americans making their families proud, young adults looking for their place in the world, and peple looking for a fresh start.
Everyone gets along very well.
I love how it is small. It makes it personal and makes it easier for the transition from high school to college. It also makes it easier for there to be a better relationship between the professor and the student.
The cheap price of classes.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of activities held for the students. It a very small junior college in a very small town and despite the large relatively large students enrolled there are hardly and club, organizations, and groups that are available for students to join. Because of this in my opinion there is a lack in a sense of community. Students typically just go to class and then go home or to work. There needs to be more organizations, clubs, and groups so that students can interact with the diverse population at our campus.
