What Our Students Are Saying . . .
I came to SWOCC to play basketball and study Criminal Justice, yet I have come out of my first year with more than only those two things. SWOCC gave me the chance to learn from wonderful professors, play basketball, and also live in a beautiful place.
On the academic end of it, SWOCC let me be interactive in all my classes with small class sizes and a large variety of people from different steps in life. On the athletic end of it, they have wonderful sports facilities with a very prideful program.
SWOCC also gave me the chance to live and experience the beautiful west coast. The lake on campus, vast beaches, and endless hikes add something special to your experience.Reagan – Canada
SWOCC has given me friends for life and connections all over the world. The system here at SWOCC is so encouraging and supportive. The faculty have been so helpful throughout my time at SWOCC. There are people to help assist you in every aspect such as graduating and credit requirements, tutoring, finances and more. Housing is a big reason why I love SWOCC. Unlike a lot of other colleges, SWOCC offers an on campus apartment style accommodation. It gave me a feel for independent living. The spacious apartment styled dorms are so comforting and allowed me to have privacy at the same time as living with my friends. My favorite place at SWOCC is the soccer field. It is my safe space. The full sized turf is in amazing condition which makes playing the sport I love even more enjoyable. M...Niamhie – Ireland
I plan to attend SWOCC next year with the goal of graduating with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Fire Sciences as well as earning EMT certification. This scholarship will help lighten the load financially so that I can continue to focus on school and remain a Student Firefighter for Coos Bay. - Trevor Niehoff, DeArmond CTE ScholarshipTrevor Niehoff
Through College Now, I was able to take calculus at the high school which made it so I did not have to take it in college. This met my math requirement and opened up room in my schedule for courses on topics I was more passionate about.

Taking advantage of College Now is one of the smartest decisions I made. It allowed me to enter my four-year degree with so much more flexibility in my course load that other students don’t normally have. It also allowed me to dive straight into degree specific courses, which has really helped me in the STEM field.Nathan Midyette
TRIO Student Support Services was a lifesaver for me at SWOCC. The program helped me to integrate on campus and become a confident college student. I always knew I had a place to go for advising, tutoring, and hanging out with my peers. Without TRIO, I don't feel that I would have succeeded in college and earned my degrees. I credit TRIO for my educational success and I recommend the program highly. Joining Student Support Services means you will have a wonderful support system and amazing people to help you achieve your goals and dreams.Chelsea Feger
