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.

Great school! Needs to drop old bible college rules and go into a full liberal arts college to keep retention up.
My experience at Southwestern was good. Although it was not something I was Familar with the school has made a big impact on how I carry myself as a person now. I’ve matured more and got closer religiously with God. My stay here was short but it was fun while it lasted. The people here are friendly and great to be around although the campus may be small it does give you the feeling that everyone is family and care for one another
