I like the student to professor ratio. It gives us students more individual time with the professor if need be.
I like the diversity of the students. An estimated 30% of the students are forgieners. Also also like the location. SWCU is just on the outskirts of downtown OKC, located in Bethany. With only a 15 minute drive, one could find themselves at the front door of the Chesapeake Areana, home of the Thunder. There's quite a lot to do in OKC. Ones first impression may say that the city is small and scattered, but if you look hard enough there is great things there. Same with SWCU. The opportunities that SWCU off are just about limitless. The relationship one might build with fellow students, could be some of the most important ones in life. Who knows when one might need to travel to London, South Africa, or Victoria Australia, to make a business deal?
Great school in my opinion. You just have to look deeper and find the great things within.
Review Your College
At Southwestern, every person that I have been in contact with has been kind and friendly and you can truly tell they are out for your best interest. They are there to help you, in whatever field of study you may want to go into, and they are well equipped to equip you in your future area of work. They promote good attitudes and strong relationships amongst the student body, as well as for us to look past everyones differences and stand together; unified on one level.
Going into this university I was excited to see what God had in store for me here and to play a few more years of basketball and softball while attending. Once I started the university though things quickly shifted and it's just not the right university for me anymore. Nor, does it have the adequate equipment or labs in order for me to pursue my future career.
