4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I've had a few frustrations with my classes, but I was able to work them out with my professors or on my own.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experiences with the professors and courses offered have (thankfully) been nothing but positive! Professors are very open to answering questions and communicating with students outside of class.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career and job centers we have are great on campus, but via social media their communication with students and the general public fall by the way side.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The classes are challenging and require a lot of outside work, but sometimes the professors can be generally unclear and not communicate with the class well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm in my first semester at Southwestern Illinois College (Belleville Campus), and I've had a great experience so far. Great professors, challenging classes, and an easy commute.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I loved the wide-range of options but wish that the more common classes offered more than one class at each particular time. I found many classes I needed to take at certain times were already full by time I got to sign up.

2 College Freshman

Career Services: I believe that SWIC focuses on the first two years of college and nothing more.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm currently not intending to get anything out of this school except a few credits to transfer to my real intended university so I can't really speak on this subject.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It is very flexible! The supervisor of my job, which is also where I go to school, creates the work schedules to work around student worker class schedules. Therefore, school and class interference is no issue. I also have time to go to doctor appointments when classes are over for the day.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I am lucky to have a job at the same place I go to school. My supervisor who schedules my work hours works around my classes, so school and work interference is no issue. I also have time to go to doctor appointments after classes are over for the day. It is very flexible and I have had few hassles or frustrations. I have not transferred credits thus far, but my faith in the school has me believing that it will go over smoothly when it comes time to transfer.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My courses were fun and interesting. My teachers were kind and helpful. There is a reasonable variety of classes offered and the class sizes always even out to a manageable amount.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Thanks to the opportunity to receive a job at the school, I got my first job as a secretary in the school's academic advising and counseling office. My supervisor interviewed me and saw through my nervous smile and into all of my great qualities and characteristics that qualified me for the job. Thanks to this opportunity, I will be better-prepared to pay for my classes. Without this school, I would likely still be unemployed.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I frequently find myself becoming stressed, but I can blame no one but myself for pushing myself so hard to get the best grades possible. My classes work toward the kind of career I want (likely in the medical field) and I enjoy learning about what I'm interested in.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I achieved outstanding grades and received my first job. I made a variety of friends in the first semester, which also helped my social life. I haven't been this happy in years, especially because of my rough middle school and high school experiences.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The classes are really flexible. I have a full time job and i mostly go to school at night. They are many night class and the professor will work with you knowing you have a full time job.

Overall Experience: I would always choose SWIC for an associates degree. The degree is much cheaper and I feel the quality of teaching is right at SIUE's level

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: You can only miss so many days of class before you need a doctor's note, but the teachers are really understanding about the fact that life happens, and will help you stay afloat when you return. Like most schools, if you miss weeks or more of classes then you can be dropped, but if you're missing weeks or months of school, then you should probably take some time off to sort things out.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I talked about it in my academics review, but I'll say it again: the teachers are nice, great, easy to reach and understanding about any life events that might get in your way. The courses are slightly demanding, but made easy by the fact that the learning environment's pretty great. However, if you fall through the cracks you'll be subject to the RESTART program, which is just a one day workshop and a few days wait for the dean to approve your form. I will say that class sizes are medium to large sized with some of the more specialized degree programs having a smaller classroom ratio.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a student success center but I've never used it. We also have a veteran's support place, but again, I've never used it.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The teachers are really nice, accessible, and know their stuff. They don't really have office hours here, but you can easily just schedule a meeting with them or meet up after class. The classes themselves are plenty easy, but not because of a lack of educational value, it's just pretty easy to learn around here. The library's not that great, and the computer lab's always full up, but you can always find a quiet place in one of the buildings to study.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As far as community colleges go, SWIC is one of the best in the area. It has three campuses to suit the needs of the kids in the areas and the Belleville Campus (where I attend) is easily reached by metro. The school's got plenty of different associates level degrees, and the counselors help to move you onto a four year college of your choice. It's cheap and a great place to get your gen eds out of the way. They've also got plenty of night classes for people who work during the day and are continuing their education.
