What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

The family of our SOWELA community is great and very much appreciated. There are wonderful folks at this college and almost everyone is communicative and responsive, engaged in what they do and supportive in what I do as a teacher.

President's Statement

SOWELA Technical Community College is an engaging place to work for the over 300 full and part-time employees due to the southern hospitality that this area is known for. SOWELA is a family of students, alumni, staff, faculty, and community members that work together to strengthen the College through active engagement, participation, and financial support. Pleasant, well-mannered, respectful, and considerate are just a few of the adjectives that describe the people associated with SOWELA.
