Here is a snapshot of who the Los Angeles Southwest College Cougars are:

Educational Programs

Los Angeles Southwest College is a two-year college that awards Associate’s Degrees in more than 30 fields and occupational certificates in more than 45 disciplines. We offer a range of programs that meet the community’s needs, including college transfer services, occupational training, community services as well as general, transitional and continuing education.

The campus is also the site of Middle College High School of the Los Angeles Unified School District and Bright Star Charter School. Students can take college courses and obtain their Associate of Arts Degree while meeting requirements for a high school diploma. LASC also has partnerships with other local high schools and offers college-level classes to students at their home campus and online.

Student Body

More than half of LASC’s students are first-generation college students. Our students come from a wide service area, including Los Angeles as well as portions of Gardena, Hawthorne, and Inglewood. We also serve international students from different countries around the globe. The Associated Student Organization is the governing body for all LASC students and organizes social, cultural and political activities on campus.


We are the Cougars! LASC offers students intercollegiate athletics and competitive team sports in football as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The Athletics Department is housed in the Thomas G. Lakin Physical Education Center, a state-of-the-art sports complex with world-class amenities. The complex features an Olympic-sized outdoor pool, physical therapy pool, fitness center, and dance studio.


We are still growing. Thanks to the passage of voter-approved bond measures, our campus has experienced a dramatic transformation with new buildings, a sprawling quad, beautiful foliage, and easy walkways.

We are especially excited about our School of Science building with its lecture hall, laboratories and an outdoor patio for astronomy that will allow our faculty to establish themselves as regional leaders in the teaching of the sciences and help students reach their full potential. The School of Science, which is scheduled to open in 2019, will be joined by other state-of-the-art and green-friendly proposed facilities that will house the Nursing Department and a Student Center. In past years, we opened the School of Career Technical Education (SoCTE) building and refurbished the Cox building, which includes our Little Theatre and Library.


We are proud of our legacy. A dedicated group of residents led by Mrs. Odessa Cox saw a 20-year vision become reality when the Los Angeles Board of Education approved plans for a new community college. LASC opened its doors on September 11, 1967, with 600 students and 22 full-time faculty members. Today, the college has more than 8,000 credit and non-credit students, 75 full-time faculty members and 150 adjunct instructors. LASC is an educational and cultural hub for the surrounding communities.
