I just moved to the area and I wanted to know about the community college from real people. What is the college strong in and weak in course wise? How long does it usually take to find job placement? Any professors to avoid? How's the parking? Thanks guys.

The parking is the worse the campus police are always on everyones ass, especially this one dipsh*t on the weekends. We have soccer games during the summer there and this guy is always onto us for parking where we do so we can watch the kids play.

If you would enjoy a ride on the Titanic then go and enroll. Then you might find out your course has been cancelled or lost accreditation and you find out after you bought your books and tried to go to class because nobody took the time to notify you. The notification was a note on the classroom door telling you what has happened. But besides that you should be OK.

This post is just too damn funny. I bet you are not parking in a parking lot are you? What do you think the NO PARKING signs mean?

Wow that scary about accreditation. Same thing happened to msu in beckley. First it was the nursing program then it all went to hell. Do you know if certain programs are failing? As for parking it always seems like colleges and universities never have enough =(

Im glad someone said something about the parking during those miserable soccer games! I used to love peaceful walks around campus before those stupid things moved in. Now, it's a nightmare. I stopped walking there after a kid tried to make me pay for parking to walk. I think that's great! Ticket them all! Other than that, I've never had a problem parking there. You should try parking at a 4 year college!
The college is accredited. I received an associates from there with no problem and then moved on to a 4 year college. Their strengths have always been known to be in the medical field. You'll be fine there.

If their strengths is in the medical field then why are those the courses that are having the accreditation problems? Me's thinks thou protest to much.

I think you are close to hitting the nail on the head where the accreditation problems began up on the hill. And it is spreading like a cancer to other programs. The problems for SWCC as a whole began the day the new President walked in the door. I would look to Highlands. They seem to have their act together a little better.

7 years ago. Then the change in leadership. Then the downhill slide. Coincidence?

I dunno about swcc, but don't give a dime to the odu program! They screwed me out of tons of money. The woman who runs it is an absolute moron. I'm telling you it's a bad idea!

Coincidence, NOT!!! Anyone that knows anything about the college knows when the downhill slide started and that is with the new president and it has gotten worse with the new dean of instruction.

So are you are saying that leadership, or lack of leadership is causing the problems related to Southwest such as loss in enrollment, accreditation problems and a general feeling of apathy? Who is the dean of instruction?

The dean of instruction will be little miss oquinn everyone up there knows that. And everyone also knows its the leadership. The real question is what's going to be done?
