I love the campus size and the landscape. All the classes are well equipped. The Umpqua hall is the state of the art building offering labs and ample room for students to relax. The gym and the track is well maintained. Walmart is just across the street. It is an idea place to study and grow.

Brandi - 08/04/2018

Absolutely horrible experience, start to finish. When I was on financial aid/student loans, the disbursements that are controlled by their financial aid office on campus was often late and in the incorrect amounts. I had past due notices on my living expenses because they never gave students the money they were entitled to on time or accurately due to losing paperwork. The teachers are of low quality and disappointing. There are a couple good ones, but overall you will kill yourself with unreasonable due dates on large assignments and wait 3 weeks to see a grade pop up on your online student account. By the time finals comes around, you have no idea how you're sitting in the class because there's still 6 past assignments that have yet to be graded. Most online teachers are part-time, therefore only answer your emails or texts on a part-time basis. To add insult to injury, when I finally made it through, they lost my graduation application, misprinted my name on the diploma I did not receive my tiny 5x7 inch diploma until 2 months after I graduated. What a waste of a few years, "education" and $30k.

Jessica - 05/23/2018

I have enjoyed my time at Southwestern Oregon. I really like the wide variety of sports offered because I am a swimmer and Southwestern Oregon Community College is the only NJCAA school west of the mid-west that has a swim team. I also really like that the campus is so close to the beach. My friends and I like going to the beach quite often, spending time adventuring, and trying to find small, secluded beaches we have to climb down to.
