Student Life @ SMC

Student life is big part of any college experience. And at Southwestern Michigan College students will find lots to do outside the classroom.

With our new on-campus housing – McKenzie Hall & East Hall – students can enjoy the full college experience, while taking advantage of our expanded Student Activity Center (SAC) – all located on our beautiful 240-acre Dowagiac campus with more than six miles of wooded cross country trails for year-round activities.

The SAC, the hub for our Intramural Sports program, Zollar Café, and other recreational events, features a fitness center, gymnasium and racquetball courts, as well as a student lounge and a video gaming area.
The SAC also has a theatre with a large screen – perfect for Tuesday Movie Night.

In addition, Southwestern Michigan College has a number of clubs for students to meet other students who have similar interests; write for the campus newspaper, The Southwester; or participate in any of the campus-wide events.
