Southwestern College Shines All Summer

        The sun is shining all summer long at Southwestern College. South Bay’s only public institution of higher education is proud to offer over 400 class sections across the college’s four campuses in the South Bay to help students and the community achieve their educational goals. 
        Class sections are at a 35% increase from Southwestern’s offering last summer session partly through the tax-payer approved Proposition 30 and the 5% pay reduction all college employees took for the 2012-13 academic year. 
        The eight, seven and five-week summer sessions offer a wide range of courses including an extensive number of transferable courses and career development courses. Southwestern College’s range of academic opportunity reaches from the main Chula Vista campus to the higher education centers in National City, Otay Mesa, San Ysidro as well as the Crown Cove Aquatic Center, which is proud to offer several aquatic exercise, theory and practice courses. 
        Superintendent/President Dr. Melinda Nish said she is proud that Southwestern College, with support of the taxpayers, can offer such an extensive summer session to help students reach their educational goals. 
        “I am grateful for the renewed sense of teamwork on campus,” Dr. Nish said. “Our leadership team, with all constituencies represented, has accomplished a great deal in increasing transparency and communicating our shared mission of student and staff success.”
