    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 will be new to the university this coming season . I can talk about what attracked me to the school. Online student reviews. That fact that's located in a nice and very peaceful small town. The fact that's based on Christian education is a major plus, for me. Amoung other things, the fact that I will be able to take 100 percent online 2 years associates degree is very helpful for someone with a very busy schedule like mine. The day I went to the admissions office , the lady was extremley informative, patient, friendly, easy to understand while providing list of all documentation needed for financial aid purposes.
    I would recommend this school, to anyone looking for a good quality education.
