What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southwestern Michigan College does have much to offer, but it definitely needs tweaking. The students currently at SWC and the alumni, claim it has a diverse environment. It does appear to be on the surface. The students racially segregate themselves and for students who are not accustomed to this, this separation is uncomfortable. The different races of students mostly interact with their own. If a student attempts to break through this division they are profiled and generally not accepted. The teaching and administrative staff however is not diverse. The school claims they have many jobs for students, more than students they have to fill them, but you hardly see any of these student jobs filled by students of color. This is obvious when you look around. Some teachers profile and show racial favoritism. The teachers and administration are the models. If the teachers were more inclusive and friendly towards ALL students they would set a more overall inclusive tone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that from the time I attended SMC, I felt very welcome and accepted. I really enjoyed my time here and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a decent sized college to start their career with. The college is very immersed in the arts and gives each student a chance to show off their creative abilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SMC was a great place to start my college career before transferring to a bigger university. It saved me a lot of money, which is a big plus for someone who has to pay for college by themselves. The overall atmosphere was fairly laid-back, but the professors definitely made you work hard and gave you the grade you deserved based on that work, which is great. There were very few professors that had bad reputations, and I was lucky enough to have great teachers for all of my classes. The professors were generally down to earth, very friendly and approachable, and knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching. Many of them would try to get the students to take a more active role in their learning, and some would even have fun games to play that would help illustrate something we were learning. Besides that, there was a great gym with very accessible hours, as well as an awesome rockwall that should definitely be tried. The dorms are fantastic, and the on-campus cafes had good food. In addition, the bookstore carried a lot of necessities that would frequently save students a trip off-campus to a convenience store. There clubs for just about any interest, and a lot of these clubs offered opportunities to go on exciting weekend trips. There were many social activities throughout the school year, including a good number of dances, that provided a great way to get to know your fellow students while having a blast. Overall, I would 100% recommend this college for anyone who wants to save money by going to a community college before hitting the big universities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southwestern Michigan College is a community college located in a small town. Overall, the teachers are relatable and willing to talk to students when they need help. The college provides plenty of study areas for students to focus on their homework or just reviewing for tests. Along with this, there is the learning lab available to students at no extra charge, where they can seek out help from tutors in nearly any subject. While there are some issues in needing to be careful of what classes to take for transferring, overall the college is as I expected from a community college in this area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've enjoyed my time spent at SMC. However, it could use an on-campus grocery store with fresh produce; it would help hundreds of students who don't have regular transportation. There is a "roadrunner kitchen" which holds non-perishable foods but students can only have up to eight limited items and visit once a week. On campus activities are fun and creative, as well as off campus opportunities given to students in certain programs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school, really easy to make friends. It's just in the middle of no where and there is not a lot to do unless you want to go on a long drive. The campus is really nice, it's not too big, walking distance to class is really nice. The teachers here are great, at least the ones that I have had so far!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SMC is a college filled with wonderful professors and staff. They all care about your academic success as well as your well-being. The professors are laid back and understand that things happen that can sometimes set you back a little. I always feel safe on campus. My study breaks consist of 10 minute walks around campus. Sometimes these breaks are at night and I never feel more safe to walk at night than I do on the SMC campus.
