"Thank you so much for all of the information shared during the faculty meeting last night. I really enjoyed it and always come out of them "pumped up" and ready to get back in to the classroom. My next class doesn't start until April but I will be working on my class and making my zoom videos and meetings better and more productive. Southwestern truly is a "different" type of school."

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.

"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 sights 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."
