Southwest Baptist University Reviews
I am currently in the physical therapy program at SBU and I love it! The classes are small enough where I feel like I matter as a student, my professors care for us both inside and outside of the classroom. The campus is beautiful, the student life is awesome. No negative words to say about it!
Southwest Baptist University is very religious and great community for any student who is a firm believer. The students are always involved in the community around the campus. The sport teams are always working with the community, schools, churches, or stores. The school gives off a polite feel. The teachers are all great people and will you help achieve success in their class.
Southwest Baptist University is a perfect school for someone who likes to be surrounded with people that have the same belief as them. If you want support in your walk with Christ this is the school for you. Although, if you stray from the typical Christian you will be ridiculed and looked down upon because you are different. I would like to see the diversity in the SBU community greatly change to more open minded and wider ethnicity. The university is located in a small town and some people may like this but you have to drive 45 min for a decent night out.
