My opinion on Southwestern College -Chula Vista is, I believe it's a good Community college to attend if you're either trying to graduate with a minor or transfer into a 4-year college to get a Bachelors's or Major. With 5 different locations, It has multiple major options such as Nursing, Law enforcement, Real estate, Chemistry, etc.

Valerie

I think it is a very good community college, and it is slowly expanding. It is very good with its technological advancements and it has a very nice and considerate staff. I will also say that they have a wonderful personal wellness counseling department that personally helped me so much in these past hard months. It is a good school with a more intimate setting than a huge four year, and I deeply enjoy that.

Diane

Its a great community college where its not expensive to go to. lots of different majors, and the administrative staff is very helpful with information. the instructors you had were extremely helpful and knowledge.

Aldo

It's a great and comfortable school, but don't get too comfortable. In order for you to succedd, you must work for it and don't be lazy since it's very easy to feel that way. Most resources are available to you: counseling, tutoring, bookstore, library, cafeterias, lounge rooms, and more. Staff is willing and able to help you with your questions, but you must do the first step. You need to know what you want for your future career and have a major in mind ready to start completing your general education, and always ask questions for what you want and where you want to go. The first step for success is to know what you want, and to go for counseling so they can help you find what you want and where you want to go.

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

    The advice that I would give myself if I was a senior in high school is to always do my best and work hard. I will be organized in all of my classes all the time and always study for my exams ahead of time. I will also be prepared all the time for my classes for example bring all my homework done and show up with my materials and be on time in class since there isn?t anybody to tell us what to do anymore so we are the ones that have to be on top of ourselves. I will also read even when the professor doesn?t tell us to so I can be ahead and be able to know what the professor is talking about. I will always do my best and never give up wherever I am.

Teachers are so different then teachers in high school, they do not "baby sit" you through everything they want from you. I learned very quickly that I have to do eveything on my own. I was the type of student that would go to my teachers for everything.

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

    Well right now what I think is really bad is the budget cuts. There are a lot of students and the school keeps cutting off teachers because of budget. Every year, more and more students enroll and that's not fair to keep students that do want to learn without an education. With all these teachers that are getting cut off, the students will take a longer time to transfer and a ltake a longer time to achieve their long term goals.
