       Traditions of academic costume began in medieval
       Europe. When students in the universities of Paris,
       Bologna, Oxford, and Cambridge began to organize into
       guilds, they developed distinctive costumes for bachelors
       (apprentices), masters (teachers), and doctors (teachers
       who had completed postgraduate study).

       American usage has been standardized by an
       intercollegiate code, which takes the Oxford costume as
       a starting point. The bachelor’s gown has long, pointed
       sleeves, and the master’s gown has oblong sleeves, open
       at the wrist. Both are untrimmed. The doctor’s gown has
       round, open sleeves, with three bars of velvet and velvet
       facing. The gown is normally black, but some institutions
       have adopted colored gowns.

       The academic hood also found its beginnings in the
       unheated medieval classrooms of England. Its original
       purpose was as a head covering to provide warmth, but
       it has long been replaced by the mortarboard. The hood
       is now worn around the neck and down the back and
       indicates both the degree held and the institution from
       which it was granted. All hoods are black, lined in satin
       with the color(s) of the institution that conferred the
       wearer’s degree. The color of the velvet trimming on the
       hood represents the field in which the degree was granted.
       The style of the hood varies with the degree level.

History                    of Southwestern College

                                              The Southwestern Community
                                              College District, located south of
                                              San Diego and extending to the
                                              U.S.–Mexico border, is one of 72
                                              community college districts in the
                                              California Community College
                                              system. It serves as the primary
                                              source of college education for
                                              approximately 400,000 residents of
                                              the South San Diego County area
                                              including the communities of Bonita,
Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City, Nestor, Otay Mesa, Palm City,
San Ysidro and Sunnyside.

The college began offering classes to 1,657 students in 1961, with temporary quarters
in Chula Vista High School. Groundbreaking for the present 156-acre campus was
held in 1963. By September 1964 initial construction was completed and classes were
being held at the new campus on the corner of Otay Lakes Road and H Street in
Chula Vista.

In 1988, Southwestern College (SWC) established its Educational Center at San
Ysidro on the memorial site of the McDonald’s tragedy. The college again expanded
its locations in 1998 by establishing the Higher Education Center at National City in
partnership with San Diego State University. In 2004, the Higher Education Center
at National City became an integral component of the Educational Village with the
construction of a new facility. A new Higher Educational Center at Otay Mesa opened
its doors in 2007 as a regional center for educational training and development. In
2009, a new state-of-the art facility replaced the previous San Ysidro site to serve its
students and the community.

In addition to its Centers, SWC also provides classes at several extension sites
throughout the District and operates an Aquatic Center in Coronado in conjunction
with the California Department of Boating and Waterways/Cal Boating and the
California Department of Parks and Recreation. Current enrollment, at all locations,
is nearly 23,000 students. More than one half million students have attended SWC
since its founding.

The college offers a comprehensive curriculum, preparing students for transfer to four-
year colleges or universities and for jobs and career advancements. Of the more than
1,100 community colleges nationwide, SWC consistently places in the top 100 in the
number of associate degrees conferred.
