    It is a nice campus, but I have had a major hiccup in my being here. The main problem being with the metro running through the campus it can bring in people who are not meant to be there. I myself have gotten my book-bag stolen when i had it right next to me, much to my despair. So watch your crap when you go here.

    Being at SWIC is quite enjoyable. It is close to home and I don't live on campus. Living on campus is a good experience, but I do believe it can lead to bad consequences and habits. It's more distracting when you are living in a dorm with other people and it's easier to put off homework. Plus the people at SWIC are usually very helpful and nice!

    I enjoy being at Southwestern Illinois College a lot. The library has plenty of computers and plenty of chairs if you want to read or tables if you want to study.
