This is an incredible place to pursue God's calling on your life. The administration wants you to find your purpose more than they want your tuition or your enrollment count.

If you're looking to party, don't come here. If you're looking to grow, then come and take advantage of relationships with friends, faculty, and administration. The academic rigor here is not exactly what I had hoped it would be, but a university's classes don't need to pummel you into the ground for you to learn beneficial information.

Overall, this is an awesome place to be challenged in your faith, to sharpen and refine it, and to figure out God's purpose for you. This school holds fast to the Bible as its direction as an institution.

I can barely recognize the freshman me who came here a few years ago. Southwestern didn't "fix" me, but the people here modeled for what it really looks like to honor God with your life while still being a fun, normal individual.

I am a freshman at SAGU and was honestly surprised by what I found. I expected to find a school that was set in its rules and regulations. While rules are still expected to be adhered to, there is a lot of freedom provided. In addition, class sizes, professors, and the academic level are all above standard. I have been very happy with what I have experienced so far and am greatly pleased that I choose this school to become my home.
Southwestern Assemblies of God University is the type of place where you just feel right at home and welcomed as soon as you arrive. The students as well as the faculty go out of their way to help others when they need it. One of the best parts of living on campus is the dorm life. Upon reading this, you may seem a bit skeptical seeing as how its an "Assemblies of God" campus which in your mind is summed up as "reserved, strict, and overall an anti-'good time' living." However, although the University are somewhat strict and frowns upon most cases of going out partying and drinking and has a curfew during the academic year, the atmosphere on each of the halls I wouldn't describe as anything less than family-like. Living on a small campus may seem to some as a disadvantage, but it enables you to become familiar with almost everyone on the campus which can have several benefits.
