Alumni Testimonials

Dr. Pam Green has been very positive and supportive. She has provided wonderful recommendation letters any time I have asked. Her input during my tour of the Education program at Southwestern College was very helpful. When I went back to college to seek a second BA degree so I could obtain my teaching license, Dr. Green made me feel like I could be the educator that I had set my sites on becoming - even as a second career choice.

She made me feel like a valued member of the education program. It has been seven years since I graduated from Southwestern College and I remain in contact with Dr. Green.

2013 Graduate

I loved my experience at Southwestern College - I probably would not have gone back and finished my Bachelor's degree had it not been for the flexible program that was offered.

It was such an intense program, yet I was still able to fit in my classes with my family's schedule - as a matter of fact, my oldest son graduated from high school the same year I graduated from Southwestern, so that made it even more special.
