Southwestern Adventist University Reviews
My experience with Southwestern was good. When I visited the school, they were having lots of different events on campus which did not allow me to enjoy very well. However, during the Sabbath hours was the best time and that was the highlight of my experience. Their worship is very genuine and you feel the Holy Spirit in the music all the way to the sermon. I truly enjoyed that part of my experience. If you are looking for a good Christian school that will help strengthen your relationship with God, then Southwestern is the best choice for you.
Personally, I like living in quiet cities. Thankfully, Keene (where Southwestern Adventist University is located) is a quiet city. I would like to change some aspects, for instance the Chemistry department is very under-represented in the campus as well as other science major departments.
I have had a great experience in Southwestern Adventist University. Because of the small size, i have been able to make meaningful connections with my peers as well as my professors. It has given me many amazing opportunities and is safe place. The selection of classes for my major are great and allow me to learn a lot because the professors are passionate about the subject. It is a great school.
